Malcom Would Prefer To Join Arsenal Over Spurs

Gary Neville has wholly rejected claims that money is the only reason why Alexis Sanchez would choose to move to Manchester United.

Now Manchester United are looking to make a desperate last-minute move for the forward.

Manchester United have emerged as surprise candidates to sign Sanchez from Arsenal, despite the Chile worldwide being linked with a move to Premier League leaders Manchester City throughout the season. "He is a great player, he knows very well that in Juventus I tried to buy him from Udinese but he went to Barcelona".

When asked if United were interested in signing the 29- year-old Chilean global, who is out of contract at the end of the season, Wenger said "nothing is really concrete at the moment".

Arsenal have faced a lot of criticism for letting the contracts of Ozil and Sanchez run down, and could face a similar situation with a handful of players next summer. The Chilean may not have liked it, but he definitely understood why, with 30 goals and 14 assists which made him the team's most productive player.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has admitted Sanchez will leave his club this month, with the final decision on where he will end up now set to be handed over to the player and his advisers.

He later explained that as an ex-player and a fan he would love to have Sanchez at Old Trafford, but he wasn't asked that question yesterday.

"I maintain what I said. many times, that normally he should stay here until the end of the season, but we will see". "That's very much open", Wenger told reporters ahead of Sunday's Premier League game at Bournemouth. "I'm focused on (playing) Liverpool, believe me".

With his contract running out this summer, Arsenal fans had been wishing that their marquee player will sign an extension but Sanchez has been holding for weekly wages of about £400,000 which Arsenal are in no mood to agree upon.

Reports suggest that the club were looking to sign the player for £20million but the latest news is that Arsenal want £35million.

"It will nearly be a relief once it is out of the way and he can concentrate on those players that he knows are going to be here for the foreseeable future".
