The race for Alexis Sanchez got more interesting in the last 24 hours, as reports emerged of a last-gasp attempt from Man United to sign the Chilean. Mourinho apparently wishes to hijack Man City’s move for the attacker with better terms.
United is willing to give the Gunners $47M for their wantaway ace, with the Red Devils bettering the Citizens’ wage package. Furthermore, the Special One has reportedly offered out-of-favor midfield Henrikh Mkhitaryan in the deal.
However, as reported by the Sun on Friday morning, Sanchez has his eye on only one club: Man City. The 29-year-old is eager to reunite with Pep Guardiola having missed out on that opportunity last summer due to Arsenal’s failure to find a replacement before the window shut close.
Gabriel Jesus’ injury has forced the Citizens to speed up their move for Alexis. Furthermore, Wenger has reportedly found a replacement in the form of Brazilian youngster Malcolm, clearing the way for Sanchez’s January exit.
The Bordeaux winger is said to be sought after by Tottenham and Man United as well and is destined for a Premier League move after impressing in Ligue 1. According to UOL Esporte, the Brazilian favors and Emirates Stadium move as he desires to work under Arsene Wenger, but the winger will not come cheap.

Man City, who could soon wrap up the Alexis deal, travels to Liverpool in the upcoming English top-flight round. Arsenal, on the other hand, faces a tricky away test at Bournemouth.
