Each situation, including Theo Walcott's future - the winger is of interest to Everton - is fragile and constantly evolving. The Red Devils, for all the firepower they have got on paper - do lack a playmaker in the vein of a Kevin De Bruyne or an Eden Hazard in the final third. But in relation to Alexis Sanchez, I don't say a word.
It's easy to see why both Manchester clubs would want him.
Jose Mourinho believes there are some players in world football a club must sign when the chance arises, regardless of circumstances, amid claims Manchester United have stolen a march on Manchester City in pursuit of Alexis Sanchez.
Speaking to the media on Friday, Mourinho was keen not to give too much away but did suggest that United would do business in January if the right player were to become available. I want him to stay for longer because he's a very important players for us. "I saw him walking normally and his scan was good", Wenger said.
But United blindsided their neighbours this week, by launching a £35million bid for the 29-year-old.

How many times Sanchez will have the opportunity to show that commitment to Arsenal is unknown. They can, though, offer him prominence.
Balague has also suggested that the Brazilian would be a good signing for Tottenham in the January transfer window.
Alexis Sanchez could be heading towards Old Trafford.
On Alexis' form compared to last season... At that kind of price, nothing is going to happen. Whether he's worth that or not, nobody this side of the Atlantic ocean *really* knows.
If it's trophies that matter to the Chilean, he would probably have to wait until next season to challenge for the biggest ones if he signs for United. However, it seems the league leaders will need to stump up the cash if they want to land Sanchez this month.
The under-18 prospect only joined from Espanyol last year but has already made an impression with a debut goal in a 1-1 draw with Newcastle United in September, Puigmal celebrated his 17th birthday with his first professional contract and Head of Academy Nicky Butt heaped praise on the Spanish youngster.
