Manchester City 'Confident' of Move for Alexis Sanchez

Manchester City 'Confident' of Move for Alexis Sanchez

According to Jason Burt of the Telegraph, while Sanchez will be available for free next summer when his contract expires-and can reach agreements with clubs in January to that end-City are expected to make a bid for him in an attempt to snap him up early.

And when it was suggested that Arsenal might cut their losses on the pair in January, the manager added: "Once you are in our kind of situation, we have envisaged every solution yes".

Asked if the club had set a deadline for talks to be resolved, Wenger said: 'No.

Of Sanchez's potential availability on Saturday against Watford, Wenger said: "I will have to speak with him, I watched the whole game [ against Brazil]".

Ozil has been linked with a move to Fenerbahce while Jose Mourinho is keen to bring him to Manchester United but Wenger insists the German wants to stay with the Gunners.

When asked to confirm reports negotiations with Ozil's agent were progressing "positively", Wenger said: "That is my understanding". "I always said the fact that we didn't find an agreement a year ago doesn't mean the player will necessarily leave". "At the moment, we are not close enough to announce anything".

Arsene Wenger has cast doubt over whether Alexis Sanchez will be involved for their Premier League clash against Watford this weekend, after the Chile worldwide received "special treatment" on global duty.

Asked if he was anxious about Sanchez's mental state, Wenger said: "I will have to speak to him".

Sanchez meanwhile saw his Chile side crash out of World Cup qualifying with defeat to Brazil with the 28-year-old coming in for some physical treatment.

"I am more concerned that yesterday afternoon I watched the whole game, Brazil against Chile, to see how hard the game was and I must say he got some special treatment in this game". It was a very physical game.
