Manchester United confident of winning race to sign Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal

"What I can say is that myself and the Manchester United board, we don't believe a lot in the January market".

It's no surprise as to why Arsene Wenger was hell-bent on making sure that Alexis Sanchez stayed at Arsenal.

Wenger says there are two major factors that will decide whether or not they can get the other two players to renew their deals- earning money and winning trophies.

The report also suggests Mourinho was unwilling to enter the race to sign Sanchez in the previous transfer window in an attempt to avoid becoming embroiled in a summer-long battle for the Chilean's services.

Romelu Lukaku has taken over the lead striker role from the 36-year-old and while the likes of Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial haven't been entrusted with relieving the Belgian too often but should United land Sanchez, he may finally be afforded more of a rest.

Speaking at his weekly pre-match press conference, as reported by the Telegraph, Conte was quizzed on Sanchez, who is in the middle of a tug of war between both Manchester City and Manchester United. However, during his pre-match presentation before the match against Bournemouth, Arsene Wenger went on to say, "Look, honestly, I can not tell you much more at the moment about this situation".

GETTY Alexandre Lacazette has had to adapt to the intensity of the Premier League

Fernandinho turns 33 at the end of the season and although he has been one of the best players for City this season Guardiola is looking to the future, especially with Yaya Toure likely to depart in the summer.

Ozil, who could miss Arsenal's Premier League clash at Bournemouth on Sunday with a knee complaint, has just six months to run on his current deal.

French side Paris St-Germain have also been linked with Chile forward but Sanchez's preference is to join Manchester City. No player would say: "'Oh I hope he doesn't come.' Every one of us is playing really well right now and everyone has confidence", the German said.

"But Henrikh is a very good player, he played in our last game and, assuming he trains normally at the weekend, he will be selected to play on Monday".

"I understand completely why you ask this question [about Sanchez], it's your job", said Guardiola. The agents say to the club, I bring him to you at the end of the contract but you give me a big agent's fee.

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.
