Alexis Sanchez has not travelled with his Arsenal teammates for today’s game at Bournemouth, according to the Mirror.

Having not agreed a new deal with the club given his contract runs out at the end of the season, it looks almost certain that he will be on the move imminently.

Manchester City had been the favourites to sign the attacker, yet it now looks like Manchester United have moved to the front of the queue for the Chile international.

Pep Guardiola doesn’t want to meet Arsenal’s £35million asking price given they can sign him on a free in the summer, while the Red Devils are prepared to pay around £30m for the ex-Barcelona man.

The Europa League holders will also give the player a huge signing-on fee and a bigger contract worth around £400,000 a week.

Although Sanchez trained with the Gunners on Saturday, it seems that his absence from the squad at the Vitality Stadium is not down to injury.

The Mirror also claim that Arsenal players believe the attacker will complete a move to the Red Devils in the coming days.

With Sanchez set to depart, Arsenal are targeting a deal for Bordeaux’s malcom.
