Quite happy City have pulled out of the auction. As good as Sanchez is if he doesn't want to play for City would rather he was elsewhere.
thats so noble

Interesting deal this. Reports suggesting both Utd and Arsenal will only deal if Mkhitaryan goes the other directionNo reports yet of what the transfer fee for Mkhitaryan is but presumably it is already agreed and Utd will get back much of the 30m they paid for him. Or what contract Arsenal are offering him. He's on about £150 a wk currently for another 2.5 years. On same terms surely he would accept the deal given his current situation at Utd. Maybe Arsenal are offering less salary or want more years, maybe the agent is asking a lot
The bit not agreed is the Mkhitaryan bit, Sanchez to Utd bit is all agreed. Mkhitaryan to Arsenal personal terms are not agreed, that is the hold up.

Arsenal have got lucky here . Now an auction between United and Chelsea.
Chelsea bit was completely made up. Don't know why anyone took this part seriously. No credible journalist reported any interest from Chelsea at any point. The source was literally Man City saying it in their briefed statement. Not hard to work out Man City aren't a reliable source and could have reasons for saying something like that, especially as it was weird how it was just chucked on at the end.
Conte has said he's not aware of any move or interest.

Seems odd that he would drop City at the last minute to earn a few more quid with Man Utd.Presumably £300k a week isnt enough for him.
He wanted to go to City , but he wanted to go this month . And in January it is not up to him . Arsenal only have to let him go to the highest bidder while he is under contract . He could have agreed to move to City in the summer i guess , but then maybe he gets injured or whatever ....
