Sanchez left out of Arsenal squad ahead of United move

Perhaps he would be more agreeable with the £1m-a-week keeping Lionel Messi at Barcelona Perhaps he would be more agreeable with the £1m-a-week keeping Lionel Messi at Barcelona

Arsenal are interested in taking Henrikh Mkhitaryan from United, who they wanted in the summer of 2016 when he was leaving Borussia Dortmund only for him to choose the move to Old Trafford.

The 26-year-old limped off against Chelsea in the Carbao Cup semi-final first leg on Wednesday evening at Stamford Bridge after blocking a Danny Drinkwater cross, suffering from what Wenger described as a ankle ligament strain.

Ahead of Manchester City's clash with Liverpool, The Sunday Mirror are splashing with Jurgen Klopp's interest in making a late play for the Arsenal star now that he is flushed with cash following Philippe Coutinho's sale.

They differ slightly in their approach in that Salah's position is much narrower as he operates purely as a forward to utilise the space left behind a free-moving Roberto Firmino.

The 29-year-old is subject of a transfer tussle between Manchester United and Manchester City this month , with Pep Guardiola's side refusing to budge on their £25 million offer for the Chilean.

Sanchez's agent will also get a lump sum as Jose Mourinho attempts to gazump his title-rival. We build a squad with this idea and I share this philosophy with [executive vice-chairman] Mr. [Ed] Woodward and the owners.

'But Wenger is understood to have changed his mind on after training on Saturday.

The Red Devils are planning to hijack Arsenal forward Sanchez's move to City by offering him £350,000-a-week wages and a £25million signing-on fee.

Ferdinand believes the choice is clear - although as Jermaine Jenas says, it must hurt him to say it.

Lallana conversely will be tasked with replacing Coutinho in Klopp's midfield three and he is one of the few players to fill that offensive No8 position.

Malcom bagged an assist with a brilliant run and cross for Gaetan Laborde to head home the winner away at Troyes.

"If Manchester United bought Sanchez it would be a major-major signing", he said.

"As a professional, you'd have to say that the balance of power is starting to come back to an even keel almost and then going City's way". Arsenal would lose both their best players on the cheap, forcing them to spend big for replacements, while United would get two of the most talented attacking players in the league, both of whom have already adjusted to the rigours of English footbal.
