Man Utd news: Jose Mourinho to hijack Man City’s move for Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez


Sanchez, 28, was on the verge of securing a move to Manchester City on transfer deadline day after Arsenal accepted a bid totalling £60million.

However, Arsene Wenger blocked his move to the Etihad after failing to land Monaco winger Thomas Lemar as his replacement, with the France international opting against a switch despite the Ligue 1 champions accepting the offer.

The Chile international looks destined to leave Arsenal on a free transfer after refusing to sign a contract extension.

Sanchez is demanding around £400,000-a-week, which Manchester City are reportedly willing to pay him.
