Yet Spanish website Don Balon say the north London giants face a fight persuading the Argentina worldwide to sign on, with memories from his nightmare time at United still on his mind. With that in mind, Arsenal supporters will be clinging to some slender hope that the 29-year-old may yet extend his stay at the Emirates Stadium.
"It's unethical to speak about other clubs' players and the manager has always said that".
But if there is any chance of a lucrative offer for Sanchez and Arsenal having the weight to push a deal through, United's board can not hesitate for a second.
"Sanchez is an Arsenal player, I don't know but probably this weekend he is going to defend Arsenal colours so I don't think it's correct to say things about Alexis Sanchez".
The 22-year-old has also registered more assists than Sanchez, at an average of 0.59 per 90 to the Chilean's 0.18. Arsenal would lose both their best players on the cheap, forcing them to spend big for replacements, while United would get two of the most talented attacking players in the league, both of whom have already adjusted to the rigours of English footbal.

But Wenger played down talk of a move saying: "He is a good player but nothing is happening". City have a very comfortable advantage and they can sit on that; it is the sort of lead that gives a lot of tranquillity and takes away the pressure from the guy that comes behind you. Fred is playing in Ukraine, and Pep Guardiola wants to bring him in during the January transfer as he builds for the second half of the season.
"There is still an opportunity for (Mesut Ozil) to stay", said Wenger at his weekly news conference.
Sanchez is expected to leave Arsenal this month so that the North London club can recoup some money for their wantaway forward, rather than allow him to leave for free in the summer.
