Jose Mourinho finally speaks out on Alexis' Sanchez transfer

Arsenal's Alexandre Lacazette hasn't scored since early December

But City are reluctant to meet Arsenal's £35 million (€39m) asking price and foot the £5m (€5.6m) bill Sanchez's agent, Fernando Felicevich, is reputed to want for his part in the deal.

The 20-year-old has decided on a move to the Emirates because of a desire to work under Arsene Wenger.

Wenger sounded optimistic that a breakthrough could be imminent in contract talks with Ozil, saying he feels more confident now than in the summer that a deal could be reached with the German.

"There is still an opportunity for [Ozil] to stay".

It's still entirely possible that City will still sign Sanchez in January but at the moment at least, it looks like there's still some way to go before that happens.

"But we want to keep Jack and if we have an opportunity maybe to keep Ozil, the rebuild will be less deep than if all the three left".

"One hundred per cent (I can understand why he would want to join City over United), 100 per cent". Incidentally he won trophies with us.

"I said hello, he is a great player and he knows in my first season in Juventus we tried to buy him from Udinese and he made a decision to go to Barcelona", Conte said, ahead of his side's Premier League meeting with Leicester City.

"And I can also understand why, supposedly, Manchester City would put two fingers up at Arsenal for not selling him back in the summer when they wanted and now playing hard ball".

According to the Daily Express, Malcom is not the only player who prefers a move to the Gunners over their Premier League rivals.

"In the big clubs you are in a choice".

"So what is the player's calculation?"

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".

The Frenchman with a degree in economics believes players running their contracts down will become more prevalent.

Even if the United boss makes a rare foray into the mid-season market, he does not believe any incomings will determine whether or not current Premier League leaders Manchester City can be overhauled.

"Pulisic himself seems too level-headed to eye up a move to bigger, more pressurised clubs before he's fully formed as one of those rare attacking midfielders who can make the difference every single time they touch the ball", ESPN's Raphael Honigstein wrote in his report.
