Sanchez left out of Arsenal squad amid transfer rumours

Sanchez left out of Arsenal squad amid transfer rumours

Arsenal want £35m for Sanchez, while the player's agent, Fernando Felicevich, is also said to be demanding a fee of around £5m for facilitating the deal.

Whether it's this month or in the summer, it's going to be a huge job to replace them.

The breaking news, though, will focus some minds on what has been painted as the nightmare scenario.

"In relation to Alexis Sanchez, I don't say a word".

Just like former Gunners star Robin van Persie.

"The only word I can say is he is a phenomenal player, apart from that Arsenal player and I feel I shouldn't say much more than this".

The dropped shoulders and sulky mood has not gone down well with the faithful of the club and why would it?

Paper Round's view: United and City now seem to be prepared to use the winter transfer deal not for minor deals, but for major parts of their spending. "But he is an Arsenal player".

Strangely enough, transfers are the one area of football operations that Arsenal can approach with any sense of renewed optimism.

But where will Sanchez end up playing his football? "As good as it is being Superman, it's time he fitted into a team with a few Supermen already there". It's a promising step, but no more than that.

He later explained that as an ex-player and a fan he would love to have Sanchez at Old Trafford, but he wasn't asked that question yesterday.

And according to The Guardian, Arsenal have an interest in signing the Armenia global and have been keen since the summer he joined United from Borussia Dortmund.

So Mislintat and Sanllehi have walked into a nightmare scenario.

If he was to move to City, the Arsenal No. 7 would be linking up with a tremendous coach in Pep Guardiola; the pair worked together during a stint at Barcelona, too.

"Myself and the Manchester United board and owners, we don't believe a lot in the January market".

Alexis looked certain to join former manager Guardiola at the Etihad this month as the two clubs negotiated details of a move, though Jose Mourinho's interest in the attacker has made the decision a slightly more hard one for the Arsenal man. "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".
