Mourinho's Man United take on Stoke on Monday in the Premier League. If UEFA doesn't do anything about that, that's what will happen more and more. It was a really good result for them after their FA Cup defeat to Nottingham Forest at the weekend, but without Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil in the team, it was also a glimpse into the future.

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.

Manchester United emerged as surprised contenders for an unsettled Alexis Sanchez after what seemed like an imminent departure to the Etihad. "I don't know if it is ethical or correct".

"Is he [Sanchez] replaceable in the way that we find exactly the same player?"

Ritchie said on MUTV: "A player of his stature and nature, you have got to be interested".

This was an expected response from the Portuguese.

"It's much easier to play as part of a back eight under Mourinho, occasionally getting forward to put a cross into the box for Romelu Lukaku to spoon over the bar".

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

"I think it is a good investment, ' Conte responded when asked about the speculation surrounding Sanchez".

City also feel the player is determined to leave Arsenal come what may this month, so their stance could lead to him joining a rival club.

But the situation has taken a fresh twist with the arrival of Sanchez's family in the country. Sportsmail revealed last month that the club had launched one last effort to persuade the Germany star to sign a new contract.

However, Arsenal are reluctant to sell without replacing him and their first choice is Bordeaux's 20-year-old Brazilian forward Malcom.

Arsenal are sixth in the Premier League and are fighting on that front and in the Europa League for a Champions League spot next season. Mark Hughes got sacked right afterwards, but the new manager still has not been announced.

"I have had many conversations about him and we talked about the fact that people are always observing you with a microscope when you're on a short-term contract, but I've never questioned his professional attitude when he's on the football pitch".
