Chelsea manager Antonio Conte: Can't stop Man City from signing Alexis Sanchez

A lot of words to say not much at all that should twist the media into knots.

Manchester City forward Leroy Sane has insisted he has nothing to fear from a potential move for Alexis Sanchez.

Guardiola said his focus was on maintaining City's fine form when they travel to Liverpool in the Premier League on Sunday. "If I was my players I wouldn't want my manager talking about other things", he told a news conference.

The Telegraph says Mourinho wants more competition for places in attack with Romelu Lukaku scoring only five times in his last 21 matches and Zlatan Ibrahimovic continuing to struggle for fitness.

However, Manchester United have turned the transfer saga on its head with their late bid to hijack Manchester City's move for the Chilean and are reportedly close to thrashing out an agreement with the winger.

Sky Sports reporter Gary Cotterill found the chance too tempting and made a decision to ask Wenger "If you were a player, would rather play for Guardiola or Mourinho?"

He added: "Honestly I believe, with inflation we have at the moment, players going to the end of the contract will happen more and more".

"What we believe is there are some players in the football world where if you have a chance to sign them then you have to try".

Arsenal may be more attracted to a deal with amid claims that the Old Trafford club are prepared to offer midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan as part of the deal, with Arsenal legend Paul Merson in favour of that move.

The young Brazilian would be an exciting signing, for sure, but it's a sad indictment of where Arsenal are that two of their main rivals argue over their star player as the Gunners take a punt on a kid as a replacement. "Hopefully we can improve our level because I really think it was good".

"I wasn't inside but, from the outside, I think [Mark] is a guy with great qualities to do the job for them".

However, as Gary Lineker writes, it would, in theory, make an terrible lot of sense for United and Arsenal to effectively swap Sanchez and Mkhitaryan. "So you are in a situation where you can not extend the contract of your players". "Never. Why should I change?" he said. I don't know, I don't know how I can answer you.
