There's No Doubt Manchester United Want Alexis Sanchez - Former Red Devil

Alexis Sanchez will only be sold this month if Arsenal can find a replacement, manager Arsene Wenger has said.

And one of the Manchester clubs is reportedly "close" to an agreement.

Wenger confirmed the club have reopened negotiations with Ozil, saying: 'We are still talking and there is still an opportunity for him to stay.

For them to finish in the top four this season is not going got be easy, and that's why selling Sanchez to Manchester United would make no sense to me at all.

Commenting on United's Premier League clash against Stoke City, Mourinho said: "We are all happy, we are lucky to play on Monday, which gave us this extra day to get back and tomorrow we are here again".

As the sharpshooter has not signed a new Arsenal contract, the Gunners now face losing Sanchez for below his market value midseason or for nothing at the end of the campaign. Aaron Ramsey, Danny Welbeck and Theo Walcott all have 18 months remaining on their deals, and Wenger believes he knows why more and more players are choosing to run down their contracts.

Former Arsenal star Paul Merson told Sky Sports: "Mkhitaryan is one of the best players in the Premier League, his confidence is just shot".

Guardiola's bid to buy Sanchez collapsed at the end of the summer transfer window and City were favourites to land him this time around but the club are apparently unwilling to meet Arsenal's reported £35 million ($48 million, 39 million euros) asking price.

"They're both back for us on the training pitch so we're pleased with that but we'll have to make a late decision on whether they will play".

"I am not going (to speak about it)", he said.

But the Frenchman was adamant that he's committed to seeing out his contract.

However, according to the Telegraph, Pep Guardiola's side are prepared to walk away from negotiations if it is prolonged beyond a point and fee, which is favourable to the Red Devils as they are ready to offer fee and wages in excess of their bitter rivals. "I don't think for the players it's a hard situation - probably they train the same way and it's not a dramatic change that isn't good in this period of the season". He's always fully committed. "And I have great respect for the plan of the others because everyone tries to kill you". "That has nothing to do with my personal situation".
