This star could leave if Alexis Sanchez joins Manchester United

Manchester United have emerged as a strong contenders to sign Sanchez after they offered Arsenal a bigger payment for the attacking star who is out of contract this summer, as well as reportedly proposing bigger fees for the player and his agent to move to Old Trafford this month.

The Chile worldwide 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.

Asked why Sanchez has been left out of the squad, Wenger told Sky Sports: 'He's been vague at the moment, the situation is not completely decided one way or the other, so I left him at home.

Jose Mourinho labelled him a "phenomenal player" at his press conference later that day but both the United boss and Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola were tight-lipped about a potential move for the forward.

Although contrary to what has been said during the past few months, the Chilean winger is not likely to join City and instead could seal a move to United.

Australian Open 2018: What the players are saying
Kyrgios, who made the Australian Open quarter-finals in 2015, will begin his 2018 campaign against Brazil's Rogerio Dutra Silva. During all these years, I was very happy to keep playing tennis. "But I feel good".

The Brazilian, who can play wide right or left, is an outstanding technical player though Arsenal recognise he will take time to adapt to the physicality of the Premier League.

It is hard to envisage Sanchez staying beyond January, but Arsenal will not sell him unless they can bring in a replacement, with a £35m bid for 20-year-old Malcom expected this week.

Thomas Lemar was initially Wenger's favourite but Arsenal failed to land him with a £90m bid last August, when Sanchez was on the verge of joining City for £50m.

United have a lot of creative players in the final third, but none is as influential as Sanchez.

"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".
