Alexis Sanchez is set to snub Jose Mourinho
Alexis Sanchez is poised to snub Jose Mourinho and push for a move to Manchester City.
United reportedly told Arsenal they were even prepared to include Henrikh Mkhitaryan in any deal for Sanchez while they were willing to offer the Chilean a huge pay packet.
But Mourinho is set for disappointment over his bid to land the 29-year-old.
City had been hoping to land Sanchez in the summer, when he will be available on a free transfer.
But Guardiola is eager to bring him in now after an injury to Gabriel Jesus and City have held talks with Arsenal over a deal.
City are understood to have offered their Premier League rivals £20m, but the Gunners are seeking closer to £35m and want a replacement in first.
