Manchester United have emerged as surprise candidates to sign Sanchez from Arsenal, despite the Chile worldwide being linked with a move to Premier League leaders Manchester City throughout the season.
However, Sky Sport Italia claims Jose Mourinho's United are plotting to snatch the Chile global from under City's noses.
Sanchez's move from Arsenal to City has been talked about as a certainty recently but Manchester United's late interest has put off their rivals.
Asked whether other Premier League clubs have a responsibility to stop Pep Guardiola from adding Sanchez to his squad, Conte suggested Chelsea could do little to hijack any City move.
"But Liverpool now have to come to an agreement on price with Monaco and they are holding off on that because Monaco, intelligently enough, realise there are three of the top English clubs wanting the player and they can wait".
"We don't believe in signing a player just to sign a player, just to do something.We don't believe in that".

Runaway Premier League leaders City have been on his trail since a failed bid to sign him last summer and remain keen but United lead the bidding with an offer of £25million. "If it happens, it happens", Mourinho said.
"These guys want to make money but they want to win trophies as well, so it is a combination of things".
Although this will get Manchester United's fans excited it's not an open admission to wanting to buy Sanchez as Merson states.
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.
The Premier League leaders have always been linked with signing the Chilean forward, and had a reported £60m offer for him accepted by Arsenal on deadline day last summer.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has admitted Sanchez will leave his club this month, with the final decision on where he will end up now set to be handed over to the player and his advisers.
