Man United boss Mourinho reacts to Sanchez speculation

Adjust Comment Print

The story surrounding the future of Chilean worldwide Sanchez was one of the talking points of the summer transfer window, with all of Bayern Munich, PSG, Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City having expressed an interest in the 29-year-old. "I'm concerned when it matters we are not unsafe enough". If he stays here he is a very good player that this season started very very well and came a little bit down but last season did awesome things for us, helped us to win the Europa League, being one of the most important players. "Today, I don't have one single piece in information so let's see what happens".

The Alexis Sanchez to Manchester City transfer saga has taken yet another twist with reports claiming the club are holding new talks about a move for the Chilean today.

Those sort of figures ensured that Manchester City went cold on a player that they bid £60m for last summer.

"No news on Alexis Sanchez, he is an Arsenal player, if he stays it's great for Arsenal, if he comes to us, great for us, if he goes to another club, great for them", the United boss told BBC Sport.

Alexis Sanchez's move away from Arsenal could be confirmed "in the next 48 hours", Arsene Wenger has confirmed.

Antonio Valencia and Anthony Martial in the first half, and Romelu Lukaku after the break, were on the scoresheet as Jose Mourinho finally beat struggling Stoke as United manager at the fourth time of asking.

Lukaku later got in on the act, when he fired home to put the Reds firmly out of sight midway through the second half. They had more chances than I would have liked them to have had in the first half.

However, Neville has been highly critical of journalists and ex-players claiming that Sanchez would only ever join United, the biggest club in world football and England's most successful ever football club, for the money.

"I've always, especially recently, felt really confident, and I knew I was in a good moment fitness-wise with the work I'd been doing".

"But we have to think about ourselves winning".

He would also represent good value for money and decent sell on value (not that Arsenal are particularly good at this), with all of his best years ahead of him.

It was the Ecuadorian's third Premier League goal of the season.

"I would lie if I said it was a pure tactical decision". "But the most important thing is the result and to catch them".
