Vardy was in high demand after Leicester's title win in 2016 with the likes of United, Arsenal, City and Chelsea credited with an interest. The first time he insulted me, I had a response, a response that I know touched the point where he really feels hurt.
The Arsenal forward appears destined to leave the north London club in January having entered the final six months of his current contract.
But that would be a custard pie if Mourinho goes "I want Sanchez", and he goes, "no, I'm going to go to Man City".
"No player would say, "Oh I hope he doesn't come".
"At the general level, I can say I told you myself, the Manchester United owners don't believe in the January market".
If Arsenal can get either to stay put, then their claims to a top-four finish and a return to Champions League will be offered a welcome boost. "It looks like Sanchez will not extend his contract".
"I maintain what I said". The Chilean may not have liked it, but he definitely understood why, with 30 goals and 14 assists which made him the team's most productive player. The Chile worldwide has reportedly agreed personal terms with the Premier League leaders but the transfer saga took a major twist on Thursday when it emerged Manchester United have tabled their own offer of £25m for the Gunners star - with Jose Mourinho said to be confident of beating Pep Guardiola to his signing. They are the best two players Arsenal have and when they are not there, the difference in their attacking play is obvious. "So you are in a situation where you can not extend the contract of your players". However, since Arsenal were not able to get Thomas Lemar from Monaco, they were not ready to sanction the sale of one of their best players without a replacement. You will have to ask him which is his choice, or ask Arsenal. I am not going [to speak about it]. Never. Why should I change?'
"I understand completely this question, I understand you are doing your job, but you know my answer". You have to try and that's it.
