Andy Cole urges Jose Mourinho to break the bank for Alexis Sanchez

Andy Cole urges Jose Mourinho to break the bank for Alexis Sanchez

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has admitted Sanchez will leave his club this month, with the final decision on where he will end up now set to be handed over to the player and his advisers.

Theo Walcott is another Arsenal player poised to leave this month, with Everton manager Sam Allardyce revealing on Friday that they are hopeful of sealing a permanent deal.

There's a growing feeling amongst football fans and the media that Alexis Sanchez is about to join Manchester United from Arsenal.

When asked if United were interested in signing the 29- year-old Chilean global, who is out of contract at the end of the season, Wenger said "nothing is really concrete at the moment".

"If Manchester United bought Sanchez it would be a major-major signing", he said.

"Alexis would have played", said Wenger, after Arsenal leaked two goals in five minutes to slip to defeat.

Sanchez in particular could be heading to Manchester sooner rather than later, with both City and United interested in the attacker. "His situation is not completely decided one way or the other, so I left him at home". If players like Sanchez go we have of course to respond.

When asked whether news was imminent, Wenger told Sky Sports: "Yes, [but] don't read too much into it because I don't know what way it'll go".

He said: "If you want to achieve something good, win titles, you have to not just win but win at these kind of stages".

Wenger, whose side are sixth in the Premier League table, confirmed before kick-off at Dean Court that he remained unsure on Sanchez's future.

"We have [sic] a very bad result today, and that makes our situation very hard, and it's important that we have a squad that is focused on qualifying at the end of the season for where we want to be".

Sanchez was only a substitute in Arsenal's League Cup semifinal match against Chelsea on Wednesday.

And the Frenchman insisted the Gunners are not on the verge of sealing a move for Brazilian forward Malcom from Bordeaux. "It's better that I don't come out on any specific name".
