It’ll be interesting to see how we gets on, given he never really seemed that interested in representing them...

he was just unlucky with the timing of all those little injuries he got.

Sanchez is out of contract in the summer, so anybody is free to approach him. He can't be "tapped up" from Arsenal and he hasn't signed for City yet, so he certainly can't be tapped up from them either.
I maybe missing something here but ... the only people who are currently 'legally' allowed to talk to Sanchez are foreign clubs. According to the rules, PL clubs can't talk to him - without Arsenal's permission - until the end of the season.

Having said that ... I know many LFC fans who would agree that Souness is a knob

United seem to have approached Arsenal and not yet spoken to Sanchez. There have been discussions about a swap deal involving Mikhatarian and a fee.

I'm not sure City have done this have they? If anyone is guilty of tapping its them surely?

Oh, absolutely.

It was more a reply to your comment that anyone can now speak to Sanchez without tapping him up.

You're right, but does anyone adhere to that?

Poses restriction of trade issues I guess too.

Valencia is one of the most one footed players I have ever seen play football - how can he do that! Lovely strike, has he been working on his left leg the last month?

We understand Manchester City have ended their interest in signing Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal because the cost of the deal has become too expensive.

...looks like we may have him

We’re told by sources at City that Sanchez had indicated in strong terms that the Etihad would have been his preferred destination

...great, just what we need

Valencia is one of our better players, whether thats good or bad I don't know, but he does sometimes come up with goals like that. Pogba has played well so far, but he is always two stupid decisions away from a red card, he needs to calm down, as most of the time he picks up yellows, they are for stupid challenges. Mata, I think he is a great player & when he is trying to get into the group hug after a goal, he is dwarfed by giants, thats why we need Sánchez. :-)
Anyway onwards & upwards, attack, attack, attack, & don't let them keep pressing us, it should be the other way around.

I heard that a few weeks ago. Sánchez has all the money he needs, what he doesn't have is medals & he see's city as a means of getting them, at 29 he has only this one chance to go to a club where he can do that. This is why we must pull out all the strings for him & buy buy, buy top players to get us back to number one. Not the has beens we now are.

So does that mean he's coming, or he'll wait until the summer?

Pogba has been pretty good, let’s keep that quiet...

Utd look very sharp, and very fit, which is encouraging for the weeks ahead.

And in the bizarre world that is modern day football, the fee now is reportedly MORE than it was in the summer

Pogba, Shaw, Martial, Mata, Lukaku all had great games tonight. Could have scored more, really.

Wait, 3 for no wickets...

I think City didn't like the wage demands, as it'd probably create a whole new demand for increased wages from all the others. I think basically he wanted to be the new top earner and I'd guess a fair few of City players would also expect to be as well.

A player coming to you whose heart is in City, not the greatest place to start.

I read that they are ****** off that he's talking to other clubs after shaking on a deal in the summer.

One of his international team mates says that Sanchez has always dreamed of playing for United, but I'll take that with a pinch of salt.

I’m guessing the main reason his heart was City was an agent who told me he could get mega bucks there and who also thought City would pay him a stupid fee too. Fair play to City for telling him to **** off!!

Anyway could be worse, you could be a Chelsea fan and potentially have Andy Carroll coming on loan!

Sanchez deal STILL not done...although should go through by the end of the day according to Wenger. Now it seems Gareth Bale is in talks to come to United!

...and of course the usual 'Ronaldo to return to Old Trafford' rumours

...could be an interesting January
