Alexis Sanchez given Friday deadline to join Manchester United

Now Manchester United are looking to make a desperate last-minute move for the forward. They are in the Champions League, they look like they will be in the final of the League Cup and the FA Cup as well potentially. Sanchez has six months left on his contract so he has all the negotiating power, and while five-and-a-half years ago Arsenal still maintained the presence of being a serious elite club, they no longer can.

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

Goal understands that City remain hopeful of signing Alexis, but they are wary of overpaying for the star, whom Arsenal value at £35 million.

Questioned as to whether there was any truth in the rumour, the Arsenal manager was coy.

He said: "If you want to achieve something good, win titles, you have to not just win but win at these kind of stages".

Arsene Wenger has since noted that nothing has been decided regarding Sanchez but Gianluca di Marzio claimed on Friday that United were leading the race to secure his signature after Pep Guardiola refused to improve his offer of £20m.

"I don't think it's correct to say things about Alexis Sanchez", the Portuguese said. When it was put to him that Sanchez would only be sold if a suitable replacement had been found, Wenger said: "You sum it up very well". But you know my answer.

The Spaniard insisted his focus is on this weekend's game against Liverpool; he even advised the media to focus on football matters rather than transfer rumours.

Alexis Sanchez could be heading towards Old Trafford.

"It will nearly be a relief once it is out of the way and he can concentrate on those players that he knows are going to be here for the foreseeable future". The World Cup victor has openly called for marquee signings in the past, and Wenger admitted that Arsenal's ability to fight for trophies could be just as important as the player's salary. Certainly not, but there's always a way to find a different balance. "If somebody speaks of one of my players to tell we are interested or we are not interested, I wouldn't be very, very happy".

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.
