According to Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, there is still a chance that German playmaker Mesut Ozil will sign a new deal with the club, although he is resigned to losing Alexis Sanchez.

Arsenal accepted a £60million bid from Man City in the summer, but the deal was called off when they could not find a replacement. So he's got more opportunities to win trophies there.

"That's the calculation of the agent". But we want to keep Jack, and we have an opportunity maybe to keep Ozil.

Frustrated by the constant questioning recently Wenger finally admitted the former Barcelona star will be leaving the Emirates this month.

Manchester United are in second place in the Premier League table but 15 points behind runaway leaders Manchester City. The club later signed Colombian center back Yerry Mina from Palmeiras on a $14 million deal. United still have obstacles to overcome, however, if they are to pull of the transfer coup of the season.

Asked about the matter at his latest press conference, Guardiola said: "I understand completely this question, I understand you are doing your job, but you know my answer".

Both Manchester clubs are ready to pounce on the player this month as soon as he makes up his mind, while Arsenal look at other targets such as Bordeaux's Malcom.

Wenger said: "Of course I want a quick resolution". He started for Red Devils in the game right after the international break, the Manchester derby but was largely ineffective and abysmal and was hooked at halftime.

United are willing to offer Sanchez a staggering £350,000-a-week to move to Old Trafford, a salary that would make him the best paid player in England and are said to be increasingly confidence of securing his services.

The Arsenal boss got into a similar position last season when scores of fans demanded that the club end Wenger's reign at the helm. I am fully committed in this and I am happy in what I am doing now and what I did in the past. "Never. Why should I change?" "I'm always committed. I'm here for 21 years". If we do something now, we don't do it in the summer again. "At the moment I must say nothing is decided one way or the other". The only word I can say is the what everyone says - he is a phenomenal player. He wasn't playing, and it came as no surprise that when he was called upon, he hardly played like he was capable of.
