Wenger explains omission of Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal squad

Bayern Munich

Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez has not been included by Arsene Wenger to face Bournemouth on Sunday, as speculation linking him with a sensational move to Manchester United intensifies. It is reported that Arsenal are closing in on the deal to sign young Brazilian winger, Malcom who has been touted as the replacement for the 29-year-old Chilean.

"I don't master the rhythm of it, but it could happen today, tomorrow or not at all", said Wenger. "I didn't want to travel with him and then he goes somewhere", the Frenchman said [via].

The Belgium international remains locked in talks with the Premier League leaders, but could be close to putting pen to paper.

"It will be decided in the next 48 hours".

City are believed to have been reluctant to spend more than £20m to sign Sanchez now, as they were confident of landing the player on a free transfer next summer.

Red Devils legend Gary Neville became embroiled in a passionate back-and-forth with Sky Sports pundit Guillem Balague on Friday night as he took umbrage with the Spaniard's reductionist opinion that Sanchez would only move to Old Trafford because of money.

Asked about City's interest in Sanchez, Guardiola said: "You know my answers about that".

He told Manchester United's online news outlet: "Our squad was built not to have new players in January".

"It's a massive attraction to go and play there".

Alexis Sanchez is not included in Arsenal squad for Bournemouth.

"He is of course looking to plug a gap with Sanchez leaving as it looks to be happening very soon". Their attack lacked a cutting edge in the final third.

There are widespread reports this morning that Sánchez now prefers a move to Manchester United.

The link to Ozil is less shocking - Mourinho is a long-term admirer of the German, and the feeling is reciprocated.

He is, by far, one of the best in the Premier League and excels in every midfield role.

Mourinho used the period in-between to take his team to a warm-weather training camp in Dubai where his players worked on tempo having been noticeably pedestrian in their build-up in a recent four-game winless sequence.
