Alexis Sanchez to Manchester United a 'done deal' according to Spanish reports

Gunners fans are already mourning the loss of one of the great Arsenal players in recent times, but they may find a new messiah in Brazilian wunderkind Malcolm who Arsene Wenger has made a transfer priority should Sanchez move to Old Trafford.

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

"I think every player has a price".

Jose Mourinho said yesterday: "At the general level what I can say is myself and the Manchester United board and owners, don't believe a lot in the January market". City are known to be unwilling to offer more than £20m for a player who can be signed for free on 1st July and are confident that they will get their man because of the Guardiola factor, even if United are willing to pay more. We appreciate what a good player he is.

Discussions are believed to be underway between Klopp and Liverpool's owners, Fenway Sports Group about lodging a potential bid for Sanchez, although it will be hard for the Merseyside club to persuade the Chilean to move to Anfield due to both City and United being able to offer significantly higher wages than the Reds.

Mourinho won't say more beyond that, nor should he.

Rio Ferdinand has admitted that Alexis Sanchez should sign for Manchester City rather than his former side United.

City, who now sit a remarkable 15 points clear off second-placed United in the English top flight, are also just one game away from the Carabao Cup final and one of the favourites to win the Champions League this season.

Cantona was taken to United from Leeds in 1992 and played a key role in the success of the team under Sir Alex Ferguson before retiring in 1997, while Van Persie joined from Arsenal in 2012 and won a league title in his first season at the club.

Manchester City were favourites to sign him but Manchester United have emerged as serious candidates, with Henrikh Mkhitaryan potentially going in the opposite direction. "Maybe you ask Arsenal, they decide his future".

"If there is a fantastic opportunity on the table, you fight for that fantastic opportunity".
