With Sanchez, Ozil, and Wilshere all out of contract this summer, Arsenal has taken flak for allowing their best players to reach this perilous point.

"So he wants to fight as well for the Premier League, that's normal when you are at that level".

Alexis Sanchez will only be sold this month if Arsenal can find a replacement, manager Arsene Wenger has said.

United boss Jose Mourinho said Sanchez is a "phenomenal player" on Friday. "The only word I can say is he is a phenomenal player, apart from that an Arsenal player and I feel I shouldn't say much more than this".

"I think when a person insults another, you can expect a response or you can expect contempt, silence", Mourinho said.

As Sanchez's future is not expected to clear up until late in the window many have entered deep debates as to where the Chile global should land, the Etihad or Old Trafford, and Neville and Balague are no different.

It doesn't rule them out of signing Sanchez; City are ready to wait until June when the player's contract expires.

African Union demands apology from Trump over racist comment
Congresswoman Mia Love did not take Trump's utterances too lightly and released a statement addressing them. In Geneva , the United Nations human rights office said the "racist" remarks would incite xenophobia.

"What we believe really is there are some players in football world if you have the chance to sign them in January, in March or in July, you have to try and that's it". Given the fact that they need him more than City do they would probably be in a position to outbid City, as well as paying the player more in wages, so it then comes down to a case of convincing him.

There have been suggestions Wenger could walk away at the end of the season due to the club's difficulties on the pitch.

French side Paris Saint-Germain have also been linked with the Chile forward, but Sanchez's preference is to join City.

But Wenger played down talk of a move saying: "He is a good player but nothing is happening".

And City are not concerned if this stance opens up a route for arch-rivals Manchester United, to step in.

"I have great admiration for great players, I think Alexis Sanchez is one of these players".

And Wenger, whose side travel to Bournemouth on Sunday as they return to Premier League action, admitted that the Chile worldwide will only be allowed to leave if they can get a new signing over the line. And you tell him, I'd love to play for you again.
