Arsene Wenger confirms Alexis Sanchez's transfer is 'imminent' after Manchester United's offer

This prompted City to drop their interest in a January move for the Arsenal forward with the intention on gambling on Sanchez turning United down and waiting until the summer to make the switch to Eastlands for free at the end of his Arsenal contract.

"I find it hard, even though a player's going to be leaving, why he still can't play for his club", Redknapp said after Alexis Sanchez was left out of the trip to Bournemouth.

Manchester City and Liverpool are also in the race for Sanchez but United have the upper hand because they're prepared to meet Arsenal's demands.

However, according to the Independent, United could also move for Sanchez's Arsenal team mate, Mesut Ozil.

"At the moment their need is perhaps less than Jose Mourinho's need and that probably shows you why Manchester United are so keen on bringing Alexis Sanchez to Old Trafford".

"He's being vague, we have left him at home because of the situation", Wenger told Sky Sports. "He'll have the choice of a lot of clubs and, if United could get him, it would be a massive signing".

As reported by ESPN on Sep.

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

"I honestly believe Mkhitaryan is one of the best players in the Premier League, his confidence is just shot at United".

"The only word I can say is he is a phenomenal player, apart from that Arsenal player and I feel I shouldn't say much more than this".
