Arsene Wenger Plans To Stay At Arsenal Until 2019

The prospect of Sanchez going to United in the manner that Robin van Persie once did seems completely unconscionable to some Arsenal supporters.

Asked whether other Premier League clubs have a responsibility to stop Pep Guardiola from adding Sanchez to his squad, Conte suggested Chelsea could do little to hijack any City move.

Sanchez continues to dominate headlines as speculation continues to run rampant over his potential transfer during the January window, with United said to be willing to put forward a better financial deal to both the player and the club to trump their local rivals - a viewpoint which Neville has shot down.

If Sanchez ends up staying at Arsenal this month, which is very possible, City will fancy their chances of landing him on a free transfer at the end of the season.

United would have no problem in meeting Arsenal's demands and similarly would have no qualms paying the agent's fee having handed Mino Raiola £41m when they secured the then world record purchase of Paul Pogba.

The former Barcelona attacker is a player that Conte knows well, he tried to sign him for Juventus during his time in Italy.

The Premier League leaders have always been linked with signing the Chilean forward, and had a reported £60m offer for him accepted by Arsenal on deadline day last summer.

But now United have overtaken City as they are prepared to offer Arsenal far more that Pep Guardiola's £20m bid.

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

At the same time, United boss Jose Mourinho described Sanchez as "phenomenal", seemingly signaling Old Trafford interest in the contract rebel.

"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".

Ozil, Sanchez and Jack Wilshere are all out of contract in the summer, meaning Arsenal could have faced a massive rebuilding project, though Wenger now thinks he can keep two of the three. Incidentally he's won trophies with us. I understand the question, you do your job, you know my answer.

Sanchez is now Arsenal's joint top goalscorer in all competitions with eight goals to his name.

"In the big clubs you have a choice: you reduce the number of players and you increase the wages, trying to fight with the massive clubs", Wenger said. "Never. Why should I change?" he said. Do I stay for one year or ten years it is exactly the same.
