"I think if United were going to buy him, £25 million would be an absolute snip". On being asked if the transfer could happen soon, the 68-year-old manager said that he does not how the situation will unfold by the end of transfer window.

The Spaniard insisted his focus is on this weekend's game against Liverpool; he even advised the media to focus on football matters rather than transfer rumours.

Alexis Sanchez didn't travel with the Arsenal squad to Bournemouth and won't feature in Sunday's Premier League match.

Arsene Wenger is likely to sell his star attacker in January only after securing a replacement, with Monaco's Thomas Lemar and Brazilian forward Malcolm his top targets.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has conceded Alexis Sanchez could leave this month as long as he can bring in a replacement as he prepares for life after the Chile global.

"He is a left-footed player who plays on the right-hand side with a lot of pace, he is very direct, a very good dribbler and very, very fast so we'll see".

We think they'd be foolish to do it and that the American people would hold them responsible, but such has been their rhetoric. He claimed at his meeting that he would "sign" whatever Congress puts on his desk and wouldn't demand "this or that".

What we believe really is some players in football world, if you have a chance to sign them - it doesn't matter if it is in January, March or July - you have to try.

There is no doubt that the player would earn an extremely large amount of money at the Etihad but there could be more to that.

And while the United boss was not drawn on reports of their bid for the player, he admitted the club have a duty to be in the market for that sort of calibre of footballer when they become available. I understand the question, you do your job, you know my answer.

Mourinho also wasn't keen to speak about the Sanchez reports, claiming it would be disrespectful to talk about another club's player. This deal seems to be progressing nicely but will the £44m-rated wide man be in an Arsenal shirt come the end of the month? "Certainly not. But there is always a way, to find a different balance".

"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". They will have to replace the club's best player and won't even have a big injection of cash to help, with Sanchez's prospective transfer fee a paltry amount for a player of his quality.
