"What we believe is there are some players in the football world where, if you have a chance to sign them, whether it is in January, March or July, then you have to try".

"If somebody speaks about one of my players to say they are interested or not interested, I wouldn't be very very happy".

Manchester City still lead the way in terms of capturing the former Barcelona ace, but Man United carry an interest too. We are talking about a top player and you can buy him for a price not so high.

But stories broke ahead of Mourinho's Friday media briefing that City were unwilling to meet Arsenal's £35m asking price for Sanchez, opening up the prospect of a lucrative switch to Old Trafford for the Chile global.

Arsene Wenger admitted Friday that Alexis Sanchez's future is up in the air as Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola stayed tight-lipped over potential moves for the forward during the January transfer window.

Wenger wants the matter sorting out as quick as he can, he said: "Of course I want a quick resolution".

The Telegraph says Mourinho wants more competition for places in attack with Romelu Lukaku scoring only five times in his last 21 matches and Zlatan Ibrahimovic continuing to struggle for fitness. "I'm focused on Liverpool".

City remain favourites to land Sanchez, but Sane, 22, says he feels only more motivated by speculation linking Arsenal's Chilean forward with a move to the Etihad.

"Jermain is good at the moment, he's restricted to wearing a protected boot so there's no massive update on him but we're expecting him to progress in the timeframe we have set".

"I don't know [where he will go], you have to ask him which is his choice".

Arsenal also seem pretty keen to sell Sanchez now, he's not managed to find his best form this season and reports have suggested this team-mates have been none to impressed with his attitude.
