The Alexis Sanchez transfer saga has taken an unexpected twist after Manchester City walked away from a possible deal to sign the Chilean this month. He probably will play the next one against Stoke.
The Arsenal forward finds himself at a transfer tug-of-war between two fierce rivals, with a shock scramble for his signature having been sparked.More news: Swansea hold misfiring Newcastle to 1-1 draw
"We don't believe in signing a player just to sign a player, just to do something.We don't believe in that". With that in mind, Arsenal supporters will be clinging to some slender hope that the 29-year-old may yet extend his stay at the Emirates Stadium.
Press Association Sport contacted both United and Arsenal with the Manchester club saying they were not aware of any bid for Sanchez while the Gunners declined to comment.
Paper Round's view: Retaining Ozil for Arsenal would be vital, because it would be a blow to lose both their best players in such a short space of time.
Nevertheless, Mourinho does not think that any signing will bridge the gap between United and City in terms of points in the Premier League this season, with Guardiola's side 15 clear ahead of its trip to Liverpool on Sunday.More news: Klondex Mines (KDX) Price Target Cut to C$4.50
But having previously said he still wanted Sanchez to stay as well, the Arsenal boss seems to have given up all hope of keeping the Chile worldwide. "So they want a combination of the two, which big clubs can give them".
The Manchester United legend feels when a player of Sanchez's quality became available, it would have been wrong for the club not to try their luck for him.
"If he's got the option to go from Arsenal now to Manchester City or Manchester United, as a footballer who wanted to win trophies and would judge myself based on trophies being won, at the moment Manchester City looks like the place to go".
"I don't know [where he will go], you have to ask him which is his choice". He's always fully committed. "Never. Why should I change?" A move to Serie A would seem like a sensible one for the 27-year-old.More news: Warren Buffett says cryptocurrencies will have "bad ending"
