With Man City, off the table, however, Man United would have a free run at trying to convince Sanchez to join them this month.
Reports of City's decision to abandon their pursuit of Sanchez unless Arsenal and the player himself lower their demands emerged hours before Mourinho addressed the press ahead of Monday's Premier League clash with Stoke City.
When asked if Sanchez is a player United want this month, the Portuguese said: I don't think it is ethical or correct to be speaking about players of other clubs.

The unemployment rate at the end of a year ago amounted to more than 15 percent, the annual inflation rate was 6.4 percent. The fresh protests draw on anger over price and tax increases included in this year's budget that took effect on January 1.
Sanchez, who is out of contract at the Emirates Stadium at the end of this season, has made clear that he intends to leave, and it is understood that City is his preferred destination.
"I maintain what I've said many times". What we believe really is some players in football world, if you have a chance to sign them - it doesn't matter if it is in January, March or July - you have to try.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has conceded Alexis Sanchez could leave this month as long as he can bring in a replacement as he prepares for life after the Chile global. If Pep wants him again now, I'm sure he's thinking: 'I'm going to go there second time round and do it properly this time'. "At the moment I must say nothing is decided one way or the other".
That form has helped propel Guardiola's side to the top of the Premier League and into the last 16 of the Champions League. I'm focused on Liverpool, believe me.
Mourinho is said to believe the arrival of Sanchez could solve two of the biggest weaknesses in his current squad which he claimed in December was in need of further reinforcements, despite having spent over £300m since replacing Louis van Gaal in the summer of 2016.
