Man United now favourites to sign Sanchez after City pull out

Arsene Wenger, the Arsenal manager, admitted for the first time yesterday that Sanchez would not extend his contract, which expires at the end of the season, and United have now emerged as serious potential buyers.

Manchester United are in the market for a forward, and are attempting to hijack Manchester City's move for Alexis Sanchez.

He doesn't seem to fit into David Moyes' plans, but Mourinho is a fan of the player.

Arsenal are fully aware that replacing a player of Sanchez's calibre is no easy feat, especially considering his importance to the club. Arsenal would lose both their best players on the cheap, forcing them to spend big for replacements, while United would get two of the most talented attacking players in the league, both of whom have already adjusted to the rigours of English footbal.

Manchester City were believed to be favourites to sign the Chile worldwide thanks to their position in the Premier League and the relationship Sanchez already has with manager Pep Guardiola. United are in the running to sign Sanchez in the winter transfer window as the 29-year-old Chile global is desperate to leave Arsenal, but they are also keen to sign Ozil.

The German's current deal is set to run out at the end of the campaign, meaning he is free to field offers from clubs outside the Premier League with a view to a move in the summer on a pre-contract.

Sanchez's older brother Humberto arrived at Heathrow Airport on Saturday with a number of family members in preparation for the player's departure from Arsenal.

Yet Spanish website Don Balon say the north London giants face a fight persuading the Argentina global to sign on, with memories from his nightmare time at United still on his mind.

For so long it's looked like Sanchez would move to City.

Jake Humphrey asked the BT Sport panel after Tottenham's 4-0 win over Chelsea: "Can you make a footballing case for him to join Manchester United over Manchester City".

Wenger says there are two major factors that will decide whether or not they can get the other two players to renew their deals- earning money and winning trophies. We are talking about a top player and you can buy him for a price not so high. It's why if a lucrative offer from a major club does come in, few would blame him for embarking on a new challenge.
