City have been very open in their pursuit of the player and came incredibly close to sealing a deal back in the summer window. Sixty-eight-year-old #Arsene #Wenger insists he will remain in charge of the gunners until at least until the coming year.

But with Arsenal aware of rival interest from United, there is no mood within the Emirates to reduce the price tag.

If the Chile international were to head to the Etihad Stadium, he would represent direct competition for Sané's spot in Pep Guardiola's starting line-up.

Manchester United are more willing to than City at this stage.

"It gives a lot of tranquillity and takes away any kind of pressure from the guy that comes behind you".

Sanchez, out of contract at the end of the season, is poised to leave the north London club this month with Manchester City and Manchester United both in the race to sign him.

He added: "Honestly I believe, with inflation we have at the moment, players going to the end of the contract will happen more and more". However, the Alexandre Lacazette signing shows that he may be trying to turn over a new leaf, giving the fans what they want.

Wenger admitted a bidding war could help Arsenal but said that was not the current situation. He's a little bit the same in relation to other players that are involved in this gossip of the transfer market.

"I would not like my players, when they see me on TV or read the newspapers, (to hear) the manager talking about another (player) and thinking they are not important". PSG and Real Madrid will face each other next month in the Champions League. Barkley is recovering from a hamstring injury and has not played this season.

Do Arsenal have to consider accepting the lowly £20 Million or sacrifice losing him for free in the summer?

At others, Conte has relied on the width provided by wingers Pedro and Willian.

But where would Sanchez fit in under? "That's very much open", Wenger told reporters ahead of Sunday's Premier League game at Bournemouth.

A number of Stoke's players will have a point to prove following the dismissal of Hughes.

Mkhitaryan started the season like a man inspired, giving 5 assists in his first 2 games, creating loads of chances and in Romelu Lukaku, a man who buried them.
