Arsene Wenger gives an update on the future of Alexis Sanchez

Arsene Wenger gives an update on the future of Alexis Sanchez

City's pursuit of Sanchez has been complicated by the fact that they are unwilling to pay more than £20million for the Chilean, coupled with the entry of Manchester United into the race for the 29-year-old.

Alexis Sánchez will not play for Arsenal at Bournemouth today as his inevitable departure draws nearer. Welbeck and Iwobi are the two that get the nod and both have big shoes to fill.

Mourinho's United are understood to have thrown their hat into the ring, bidding around 25 million to trump City's 20 million offer as they seek to bolster their forward options and deny their bitter rivals. The Mkhitaryan was wanted by Arsenal back in the summer of 2016, but Manchester United acted quick and the deal was concluded in no time.

"I was having this discussion with my old mates yesterday and today", Ferdinand told BT Sport.

The defeat ends City's chances of going unbeaten throughout the league season, but Guardiola does not believe the result will determine whether the club enter the market. They are in the Champions League, they look like they will be in the final of the League Cup and the FA Cup as well potentially. Sanchez will be aware of the riches he will be able to gather by switching to either of the Manchester clubs, along with the potential to win trophies at the highest level.

United have also been linked with Sanchez's Arsenal teammate Mesut Ozil to play as a central attacking midfielder, which could be the role that Sanchez could ultimately fill if he moves to Old Trafford. I don't know what is going to happen in this transfer window.

"It was a hard game for a striker because he did defend a lot, but overall I don't worry that he will come back and it's in cycles".

Sanchez spent three years at Barcelona under Pep Guardiola scoring 39 times in 88 appearances for the La Liga giants.

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. Olivier Giroud, who has been sidelined since Arsenal's EFL Cup win over West Ham last month with a hamstring injury, will also be absent for a further fortnight.
