Chelsea fans are still baffled as to why the club are going toe-to-toe with both Manchester clubs in the bid to sign Alexis Sanchez.

Arsene Wenger accepted that Sanchez's exit might actually happen owing to the player's reluctance to sign an extension to his contract with the North London based outfit, with his current deal expiring at the end of the season.

City have been chasing Sanchez since the summer, although there have been reports over recent days that they are unwilling to meet the £35million asking price.

City remain in the race to snap up the Arsenal forward, who has six months left on his contract at Emirates Stadium, although it has been reported that Manchester United are emerging as favourites. Arsenal are all but certain to lose their star forward in coming weeks and it could happen as early as in the next 48 hours.

However, with Manchester City finally losing a game at the weekend - thanks to their bitter rivals Liverpool no less - Man United had great incentive heading into their fixture with Stoke on Monday night.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic's struggles to fully recover from his serious knee ligament injury could see United spend up to £35m on bringing Vardy to Old Trafford, though Leicester City's owners, the Srivaddhanaprabha family, will require convincing. "But it's a hard period for him. It's added pressure that a player doesn't need, so I think it's the best for him and for us, while the doubt is in the air, to protect him", he added. "The situation is not completely decided one way or the other, so I left him at home".

Bordeaux owner Nicolas de Tavernost has played down rumours that Arsenal will sign winger Malcom this month after he insisted the Brazilian would be staying put.

If there is one player who has got the January transfer window rolling, it has to be Alexis Sanchez. "Manchester United are still a huge attraction and if they're offering lots of money then they have a chance".
