Arsenal braced for Alexis exit but Wenger hopeful on Ozil extension

Arsenal braced for Alexis exit but Wenger hopeful on Ozil extension

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. He's a great talent but whether he deserves a long contract having missed so much football is debatable, so I understand why Arsenal would be nervous about that.

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has revealed his admiration for Arsenal contract rebel Alexis Sanchez, but has refused to answer questions about any concrete interest in signing bringing him to Stamford Bridge.

"I don't think it's ethical or correct to be speaking about players of other clubs", Mourinho said during his pre-match press conference on Friday ahead of Monday's Premier League home clash with Stoke City.

And when asked whether it hurts for Ferdinand to say Sanchez should join City for footballing reasons over United, the 39-year-old jokingly replied: 'When we get to the break, I'm going to speak to the lady and ask for some tissues.

"If a player doesn't find a massive club, he will have to go [to the end], and even if you don't want to extend his contract, the players will want to go to the end of their contract".

Manchester United are reportedly interested in signing Alexis Sanchez this month, which would see them hijack the player's potential transfer to Manchester City.




Sanchez and Ozil are both out-of-contract in north London this summer.

Premier League leaders City go into Sunday's game against fourth-placed Liverpool 15 points clear at the top of the table.

"In relation to Alexis Sanchez, I don't say a word".

Arsenal may be more attracted to a deal with amid claims that the Old Trafford club are prepared to offer midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan as part of the deal, with Arsenal legend Paul Merson in favour of that move. We do not believe in signing a player just to do something.

"In the big clubs you have a choice: you reduce the number of players and you increase the wages, trying to fight with the massive clubs", Wenger said. "Never. Why should I change?"

Bournemouth are a side who will take you on, but if you get the first goal against them they will open up and give you chances.
