Chelsea join the hunt for Alexis Sanchez

Eddie Howe Praises Attitude of Bournemouth Players After 'Huge' Win Over Arsenal

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho remains relaxed about his chances of signing Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez despite reported late interest from Chelsea.

United saw off one competitor in the race for Sanchez's signature when arch-rivals Manchester City, who were initially favourites to sign the Chile worldwide, walked away from the deal on Monday night.

Stoke's incoming manager Paul Lambert watched from the Old Trafford stands as Man United reduced the gap on runaway league leaders Manchester City to 12 points, thanks to Liverpool's 4-3 win over City a day earlier.

"Manchester United are not going to sign Sanchez unless Mkhi agrees to join Arsenal", Raiola told The Times.

Antonio Conte does not think that Chelsea are now trying to beat Manchester United to a high-profile January deal for wantaway Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez.

Mkhitaryan only moved to Manchester United 18 months ago, completing a £22m move from Borussia Dortmund after being the best player in the Bundesliga in the previous season.

But it is understood that, if an agreement can be reached with Arsenal, the deal will be a straight player swap and will not include United paying a transfer fee for Sanchez. It was a bit hard for him because he was on stand-by, a little bit. They need better, younger players and they have to invest. The deal fell through, due to Arsene Wenger not being able to finalize the deal he had in place for Sanchez's replacement, Thomas Lemar.

According to Jack Austin of The Independent, not only are the Red Devils ready to pay Sanchez £400,000 a week should he move to Old Trafford, they would also be ready to meet the £35 million valuation the Gunners have placed on him. "I say when you look at today, we missed many players in our squad".

Asked at his press conference on Tuesday if the west London club were actively trying to sign Sanchez, Conte replied: 'I don't know. But if the Blues have indeed joined the race, then Antonio Conte doesn't seem to be in the know. But last season did awesome things for us, helped us to win the Europa League being one of the most important players.

"So I prefer to protect him and the situation".
