Mourinho Responds To Man Utd Links With Sanchez

Also, there are speculations that his agent is demanding a £5m signing-on fee, taking his total tally to £40m.

Sanchez, 29, will leave the Gunners in January if a suitable offer arrives and a replacement is secured.

Mourinho won't say more beyond that, nor should he. I don't know but, probably this weekend, he's going to defend Arsenal colours, so I don't think it's correct to say things about Alexis Sanchez.

Manchester United are set to challenge Liverpool over the signing of Borussia Dortmund's USA wonderkid Christian Pulisic, claims the Independent .

The United manager said last March that he never would have let Hernandez leave United if he had been in-charge when the player was at Old Trafford.

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

"If in the winter you do one of the three, then in the summer you do three minus one".

"He never speaks about targets during the season, but as a football club Sanchez is one of those players, they will say if they do become available, you have got to be looking at it".

Guardiola stayed tight-lipped about City's interest, ahead the of the Premier League leaders' trip to Anfield on Sunday.

"But that would be a custard pie if Mourinho goes "I want Sanchez" and he goes "no, I'm going to go to Man City". I understand the question, you do your job, you know my answer.

"I don't think any of the teams near the top - Chelsea, Liverpool, Tottenham and ourselves - are thinking they can spend money this January to close the gap". The 20-year-old has bags of potential, and seeing him move to the Emirates should a deal go through would hurt the Spurs faithful.

"I look at Arsenal without Sanchez and Ozil and I'd ask what name would fans get on their shirts if those two go?"

"Of course I want a quick resolution", he said.

When asked if United were interested in signing the 29-year-old Chilean global, who is out of contract at the end of the season, Wenger said "nothing is really concrete at the moment".

City had reportedly prepared a £20m offer for the player, who was eager to reunite with former boss Pep Guardiola at the Etihad, till Jose Mourinho stepped in with an interest of his own.
