It is still believed that Alexis favours a move to Man City to reunite with his old Barcelona coach. He's a great talent but whether he deserves a long contract having missed so much football is debatable, so I understand why Arsenal would be nervous about that.
Arsenal with Malcolm will have a different dynamic but Wenger will hope that the Brazilian will lessen Arsenal fans heartache over the departure of Alexis Sanchez with some fine performances. "I can give my opinion to my club for every situation, then they have to make the best decision and that is right".
"I don't know [where he will go], you have to ask him which is his choice".
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has conceded Alexis Sanchez could leave this month as long as he can bring in a replacement as he prepares for life after the Chile worldwide. So it was a good chance to say hello to him.
Wenger confirmed that Sanchez is committed to winning and that the two have had recent conversations about that commitment.
Nevertheless, Mourinho does not think that any signing will bridge the gap between United and City in terms of points in the Premier League this season, with Guardiola's side 15 clear ahead of its trip to Liverpool on Sunday. I'm focused on Liverpool, believe me. What we believe really is that there are some players in the football world, if you have a chance to sign them, it doesn't matter if it is January, March or July.
Mourinho, who described Sanchez as a "phenomenal player", said: "I don't know if it's ethical or correct to be speaking about players of other clubs".
But Wenger played down talk of a move saying: "He is a good player but nothing is happening. And you will have more and more players going to the end of their contract because of that". Even if he is better, you can look up to him, learn and try to improve with him.
"I am not going (to speak about it)", he said. Never. Why should I change?'
He, however, urged the club to make a move for the forward. Okay the club wants £50million, £60m, because they want to replace me, they have to spend £50m or £60m, it will not happen, so I wait and I take a chunk of that contract in signing-on fee. And that's what you try to do.
