Arsene Wenger confirms Alexis Sanchez's transfer is 'imminent' after Manchester United's offer

The Chile global entered the final six months of his Arsenal contract at the start of January and had been expected to move to City, with Sanchez said to be keen to join up with Pep Guardiola once again. The in-demand Chilean will not play for the Gunners on Sunday and the latest reports suggest that United have an edge over City in securing his services.

However, according to the Independent, United could also move for Sanchez's Arsenal team mate, Mesut Ozil.

"He's being vague, we have left him at home because of the situation", Wenger told Sky Sports.

"At the moment their need is perhaps less than Jose Mourinho's need and that probably shows you why Manchester United are so keen on bringing Alexis Sanchez to Old Trafford".

It remains to be seen whether Arsenal will decide to try and cash-in this month or risk losing him on a free transfer in the summer. 5, Mourinho has harboured long-term doubts over Mkhitaryan's ability to influence big games and the United manager had been prepared to use the Armenian to tempt Arsenal last summer.

Arsene Wenger confirms that a decision over the future of Alexis Sanchez is close to being made, having omitted the Chilean forward from his squad to face Bournemouth.

Jose Mourinho said on Friday: "Sanchez is an Arsenal player, I don't know but probably this weekend he is going to defend Arsenal colours so I don't think it's correct to say things about Alexis Sanchez".

So, when it emerged Sanchez has been left out of the squad, United supporters were quick to express their excitement on Twitter...

"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".
