Arsene Wenger opens up about Arsenal star's potential departure

United's bitter rivals, City have been frontrunners for the signature of the Chilean superstar but are still stalling on a fee with Arsenal, and our latest interest in the 29-year-old could spark a bidding war with the noisy neighbours.

Manchester United, who first made enquiries for Sanchez back in September, are also among Malcom's admirers.

At this stage, pleading for Sanchez to stay at Arsenal is a bit of a lost cause - especially since he has good reasons for leaving. I think Sanchez provides the quality, the goals and the world-class ability he has got. This is a guy completely focussed on playing football. "Normally you should stay until the end of the season but we will see".

Antonio Conte fears that Manchester United and Manchester City are out to 'kill' Chelsea by signing Alexis Sanchez this January and has urged the club to make a move for the forward.

Asked about the matter at his latest press conference, Guardiola said: "I understand completely this question, I understand you are doing your job, but you know my answer". "Look, it's the case now", Wenger replied.

The transfers that never were. "Yes, of course", he said.

However, Manchester Evening News writer Samuel Luckhurst said Martial's recent upturn in form has convinced Mourinho to seek upgrades on the right side of his front three.

"If you want to achieve something good, win titles, you have to not just win but win at these kind of stages".

"All I can say is that Sanchez is a phenomenal player, apart from that, an Arsenal player, and I feel I shouldn't say much more than this".

"At the general level, I can say I told you myself, the Manchester United owners don't believe in the January market".

ARSENAL: Erm. the weather in London is better than up north. There are offers that happen that a club like Monaco can't say no to. It's not that I don't want to inform you.

Wenger added: "Is Alexis replaceable in the way that we find exactly the same players?" Jose Mourinho has targeted Sanchez as well but might be a bit too late as the Chilean's reunion with the Spanish boss seems more favourable.

It was suggested fierce competition between City and United over the services of the former Barcelona forward could be to Arsenal's advantage, but the manager gave little indication an auction is underway behind the scenes.

They'll even go as far as giving up Henrikh Mkhitaryan on top of cash, meaning Sanchez is left with a choice of forcing through a move to City or jumping to the team happy to pay the big money. That is what I want to speak (about). Laurent Koscielny, Nacho Monreal, Sead Kolasinac and Olivier Giroud remain out.
