Manchester clubs tightlipped over move for Alexis Sanchez

Manchester United forward Anthony Martial has been sucked into the continuing Alexis Sanchez saga as Arsenal look for ways to replace their want-away Chilean superstar, reportedly asking about the young French forward as part of some kind of exchange deal.

City offered Arsenal $27.3 million for Sanchez during the January transfer window, according to the report.

Manchester City were believed to be favourites to sign the Chile worldwide thanks to their position in the Premier League and the relationship Sanchez already has with manager Pep Guardiola.

Yes Manchester City have been very much interested and are the front runners, but there still are many clubs that are lurking around to grab the Chilean.

"It's unethical to speak about other clubs' players and the manager has always said that".

'If there is a fantastic opportunity on the table, you fight for that fantastic opportunity, ' said Mourinho on the chances of signing Sanchez ahead of Monday's Premier League match against Stoke.

"They have two choices: follow what you said or follow me".

It's not a nice situation for Arsenal, but Wenger was quick to remind people that Sanchez is still his player for now, even if it meant denying everyone the answer to whether he'd prefer to play for Pep or Jose.

'Let's say in the summer we have three targets - a defender, a midfielder and an attacking player.

"Normally he (Sanchez) would stay at the club until the end of the season but we'll see". We don't believe in signing players just to sign a player, just to do something.

Former Barcelona forward Sanchez, 29, is out of contract at the Emirates Stadium this summer and has been linked with a January switch to City. "I've never questioned his commitment or attitude". As a manager you have a lot of words to deal with and you have to choose which ones you want to be focused on.

Though they had been willing to wait until Sanchez's deal runs out in June to try to land him on a free, they are under the impression to wants to move this month.

"Alexis is an exceptional football player, he's a world- class player and if that happens (and he leaves) we have to find a different balance in the team".
