Wenger vs. Mourinho – from the touchline to the ring 0

Posted on March 17, 2018 by Harry Kettle

Picture the scenario. We’re at WrestleMania in front of 80,000 screaming fans, mainly made up of middle-aged men, all awaiting the grudge match main event between two goliaths of the sport. Wenger always falls short against the mighty José, despite the Frenchman constantly reinventing himself in an attempt to best his rival. It’s like a rubbish Stone Cold vs The Rock, basically.

Ladies and gentleman, this contest is a ‘No Disqualification’ match set for one fall. Introducing first from Strasbourg, France, weighing in at about the equivalent of 1,000 cocktail sticks, ARSENE WENGER. His opponent, from Setúbal, Portugal, the most miserable man on planet earth, JOSÉ MOURINHO.

The seemingly never-ending saga of Alexis Sanchez’s departure from Arsenal has another new chapter, as the Chilean superstar has revealed what Arsene Wenger said when attempting to convince him to stay at the Emirates.

According to Daily Mirror, Sanchez recently did an interview with a television station in Chile which is when the comments were made. The 29-year-old was with Arsenal for four years prior to making the switch over to Old Trafford in January.

“He was very fond of me and he didn’t want to let me go,” said Sanchez.

Manchester United defender Luke Shaw has been enduring a difficult time at Old Trafford under Jose Mourinho.

The 22-year-old has made only six Premier League starts this season whereas he was being pushed in and out of the first-team for the best part of Mourinho’s reign at Manchester United.

The Portuguese boss has most recently reintroduced Shaw into his team and even claimed that Shaw will be offered a new deal to extend his stay beyond the 2018/19 season when his current contract will expire.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan has claimed he has no excuses for failing to deliver during his time with Manchester United after the Armenian made the switch to play for Premier League rivals Arsenal in the January transfer window.

The winter transfer window was a largely successful one for Arsenal as they bolstered their squad with some fine attacking talent. They did, of course, lose Alexis Sanchez to Manchester United, but this allowed Henrikh Mkhitaryan to make the move to London which saw a player at the end of his contract traded for a new player.

Revealed: The list of clubs Mesut Ozil snubbed to extend Arsenal stay 3

Apart from getting their hands on the Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, the Gunners wrapped another important piece of business during the January transfer window.

And no, we don’t mean signing Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Yesterday’s reports had it claiming that midfield maestro Mesut Ozil has agreed to a three-and-a-half deal with Arsenal to extend his stay at the Emirates after he was impressed with how the club reacted to losing the key player Alexis Sanchez.

Mesut Ozil was widely expected to follow in Chilean footsteps but decided to remain at the north London and link up with former BVB duo – Aubameyang and Mkhitaryan.

Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil is reportedly a transfer target of Manchester United as Jose Mourinho’s side continues to test their Premier League rival’s resolve over their best players. Alexis Sanchez sealed his move earlier in the week, and his former-teammate in Ozil could follow him to Old Trafford.

The biggest saga of the January transfer window finally ended this week as Alexis Sanchez sealed his switch to Manchester United. Many had suspected he might join up with Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City instead, but this move did not ever materialise, and he will instead be wearing the red of Manchester United from this point onwards.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s availability now the big question 0

It’s not the question of will the Henrikh Mkhitaryan deal go through but rather when it will happen as the Manchester United man is already in London to conclude his switch to Arsenal.

The 29-year-old is leaving Old Trafford after only a year and a half at Old Trafford following a mixed spell which saw him display flashes of Borussia Dortmund brilliance.

Having fallen out of favour with Jose Mourinho, Mkhitaryan is turning a clean slate at the Emirates with Arsenal planning for life without Alexis Sanchez who – by the looks of it – will be replaced by not one but two world-class signings should Wenger succeed in grabbing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as well.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has confirmed that Alexis Sanchez is close to joining his side from Arsenal despite the Chilean training with Arsene Wenger and his team ahead of this weekends games.

Reports have been constantly circulating this week as the proposed transfer of Alexis Sanchez edges ever closer. The forward had initially been linked with his former manager at Barcelona, Pep Guardiola and a move to Manchester City, but that deal did not come to fruition.

Instead, Manchester United have become frontrunners, with Jose Mourinho’s side clear favourites to sign the star. In fact, news arose that former-Borussia Dortmund player Henrikh Mkhitaryan would be used in a switch for the player.

According to Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, German international playmaker Mesut Ozil will not leave the north London club in the January transfer window.

When asked at his weekly press conference, if Ozil will still be at the club in February, Wenger replied: “Yes, of course.” The French boss was then asked could he move this month, he just said: “no”.

Wenger also stated in the press conference that Alexis Sanchez’s switch to Manchester United ‘Is likely to happen’.

Alexis Sanchez has an offer from a mystery club 0

Alexis Sanchez reportedly has an offer from a mystery club despite reports that he is nearing a move to Arsenal’s Premier League rivals Manchester United, with Henrikh Mkhitaryan supposedly going the other way as part of the deal.

Arsenal were condemned to a dismal defeat at the hands of Bournemouth on Sunday as their Premier League campaign took another blow. Hector Bellerin scored the opener for the away team to set them on the path towards victory, but Callum Wilson and Jordon Ibe scored the goals to down the Gunners.
