Arsenal sits Sanchez amid rampant Manchester trade rumours

Manchester United Jose Mourinho

But United have emerged as genuine rivals to City in the pursuit of Sanchez, with Jose Mourinho's side reportedly willing to meet Arsenal's asking price and secure an immediate transfer.

"If he has an option now to go from Arsenal to Manchester City or Manchester United, as a footballer who wanted to win trophies and be judged on trophies, Manchester City looks like the place to go".

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

But now everything has changed and in light of Wenger dropping Sanchez, Ferdinand has given his take on the situation on Twitter.

"Yes (it's imminent). Don't read too much in it because even I don't know which way it will go".

Wenger admitted on Friday that Sanchez would not be signing a new Arsenal deal, ultimately paving the way for the 29-year-old to leave the north London club.

"I don't master the rhythm of that but it could happen today, tomorrow, or not at all".

If he goes, we have to respond. "I left him at home".

After Hector Bellerin fired through Asmir Begovic to open the scoring for Arsenal in the 52nd minute, Callum Wilson and Jordon Ibe scored within five second-half minutes to turn the game on its head.

"I'm concerned when it matters we are not risky enough". Not sharp enough to create chances.

"I feel overall physically it was a tough game for us", said Wenger. They weren't forced errors, just lack of decision making.

"It is very frustrating".

"Overall we have to look at it in a very objective and harsh way, we made mistakes we should not have made", he told BBC Sport.

"We had to do it again, do it the hard way; it's never easy against any team to come back from a losing position", said Howe.

"But we want to keep Jack [Wilshere] and if we have an opportunity maybe to keep Ozil, the rebuild will be less deep than if all three left". "That would be unsafe".
