JOSE ON ALEXIS

After Manchester United joined the race to sign Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez according to Sky sources - this is what Jose Mourinho has said regarding his reported interest in the Chilean. 

“I don’t think it is ethical or correct to be speaking about players of other clubs. If somebody speaks about one of my players, to say we are interested or not I wouldn’t be very happy. 

“Sanchez is an Arsenal player. I don’t know for sure but probably this weekend he is going to wear Arsenal colours. I don’t think it is correct to say things about Alexis Sanchez. 

“At a general level what I can say is that with the Manchester United board we do not believe a lot in the January market. We don’t believe in signing a player just to do something.

“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. All I can say is that Sanchez is a phenomenal player, apart from that, an Arsenal player, and I feel I shouldn't say much more than this."

Manchester City believe that Sanchez is keen to join them and link up with Pep Guardiola once more, having been managed by the Spaniard at Barcelona.

The Premier League leaders are unwilling to go beyond £20m for Sanchez when there’s a chance they could get him for nothing at the end of the season.

It’s thought Sanchez is keen to leave Arsenal in the current window, and City’s reluctance to meet the asking price could allow Manchester United to swoop.
