Sanchez left out of Arsenal squad


There's a growing feeling amongst football fans and the media that Alexis Sanchez is about to join Manchester United from Arsenal.

The Chile global has refused to sign a new Arsenal contract with his current deal expiring in the summer, and United and City are reportedly both keen on recruiting him this month.

The story says that Manchester City are prepared to "risk" losing out on Sanchez, and that Manchester United could now well be ahead of their bitter local rivals in the race for the talented attacker.

Asked if a resolution was imminent, Wenger added: "Yes, but don't read too much into it because even I don't know what way it will go".

The president also asked why the United States would allow more immigrants from Haiti and Africa rather than countries like Norway .

"He's being vague at the moment, the situation is not completely decided one way or the other".

Then along came Manchester United, who were willing to better City's offer with a £35 million bid of their own or a part exchange involving Armenian playmaker Henrikh Mkhitaryan. It is likely that the wantaway striker will be playing for Pep Guardiola's Manchester City, with just the small matter of "when" to be ironed out, and former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand seems to think so.

"They are top of the league, they are going to win the league this season, they are in the Champions League, they are looking like they will be in the final for the League cup, the FA Cup as well potentially".

The Brazilian, who can play wide right or left, is an outstanding technical player though Arsenal recognise he will take time to adapt to the physicality of the Premier League. Guardiola's team are more comfortable with the player completing his left 6-months contract at the Emirates to get him for free. Incidentally he's won trophies with us.
