Man Utd willing to go to £400000-a-week to tempt Alexis

Arsene Wenger has revealed that Alexis Sanchez will only leave Arsenal during the January transfer window if a replacement is signed.

"The first time he insulted me I had a response, a response that I know that touched the point where he really feels hurt".

The Chilean forward is nearly certain to leave Arsenal either in this window or on a free transfer in the summer, and while Manchester City were overwhelming favourites to sign him all along, a row over finances might just have opened the door for Manchester United.

AFTER a few days of Manchester focused speculation over Alexis Sanchez, Antonio Conte has lobbed another twist in the Chilean's future, overtly declaring his interest in the Arsenal star. "That's very much open", Wenger told reporters ahead of Sunday's Premier League game at Bournemouth. "So the rebuild will be less deep than if all three left".

Asked if he was more optimistic that Ozil will agree a new deal than he was last summer, Wenger replied: "Yes". "They don't have a problem about money or investment and I think it's a good investment because we are talking about a top player".

More news: Man United now favourites to sign Sanchez after City pull out

The runaway Premier League leaders are extremely reluctant to go above the £20m they value Sanchez at given his current contract situation. So, they want a combination of the two, that big clubs can give them. So he has got more opportunities to win trophies there'.

The English Premier League leaders feel the overall price for signing the Chile forward, transfer fee, agent costs and wage demands, is now too high. The Chilean may not have liked it, but he definitely understood why, with 30 goals and 14 assists which made him the team's most productive player.

"So what is the player's calculation?" OK, the club wants 50 million or 60 million. It will not happen.

At a general level, what I can say is that myself and the Manchester United board, we do not believe a lot in the January market. "What do the agents do?"

And when asked whether it hurts for Ferdinand to say Sanchez should join City for footballing reasons over United, the 39-year-old jokingly replied: 'When we get to the break, I'm going to speak to the lady and ask for some tissues.
