EPL: Alexis Sanchez should choose Guardiola over Mourinho - Sherwood

14 Janvier 2018

It's the talk of the transfer window, where will Alexis Sanchez end up?

"If he has an option now to go from Arsenal to Mancester City or Manchester United, as a footballer who wanted to win trophies and be judged on trophies, Manchester City looks like the place to go".

Manchester United's "gamble" on Alexis Sanchez surprises Paul Merson, who feels Jose Mourinho is risking a "custard pie" if the player ends up at arch-rivals Manchester City.

"If somebody speaks of one of my players to tell we are interested or we are not interested, I wouldn't be very, very happy", Mourinho told reporters, the Manchester Evening News report.

With a lot of speculation about his future as Arsenal coach lately, the long-serving mentor has shunned speculation he might be leaving the club this season. However, do United or City need reinforcement in either of those positions?

Stoke will enter this match off the back of successive Premier League defeats to Chelsea and Newcastle United - where they conceded six times and failed to score.

However, Guardiola received a boost with news that Gabriel Jesus will return to training next month. He said whether he is in charge or somebody else is, one can only do what's best for the club.

"Honestly I can not tell you much more at the moment about this situation, because nothing is really concrete at the moment".

The agent of Bordeaux forward Malcom has teased Arsenal fans of a possible move for his client to the Emirates Stadium by "liking" a number of welcome messages from fans.

At the same time however, Mourinho maintains that Mkhitaryan is now a player on his side, one that he thinks very highly of, and one that will continue to get more chances for playing time.

But with Arsenal pulling the plug on a £60m sale of Sanchez to City on the final day of the window due to their failure to sign a replacement, United have since explored the possibility of signing him.

Meanwhile, on the left of midfield, United have Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford as their first choice. Sanchez wants to pick up that connection again. Right now, the Citizens are 15 points up on United atop the Premier League table. Rashford has also played less minutes than the Chilean, but has still managed four goals and five assists.

United are willing to pay record £444million to PSG and bring him to Old Trafford.

The 29-year-old Chilean worldwide is heavily linked with a move away from the Emirates this month, with his present deal expiring in the summer.
