However, Arsene Wenger's side were unable to secure a replacement - Thomas Lemar from Monaco - and the deal for Sanchez collapsed.
But stories broke ahead of Mourinho's Friday media briefing that City were unwilling to meet Arsenal's £35m asking price for Sanchez, opening up the prospect of a lucrative switch to Old Trafford for the Chile global.

"No player would say, "Oh I hope he doesn't come".
Sanchez has been linked with a move to Old Trafford twice before - when he left Udinese for Barcelona in a £23m deal in 2011, and again when he joined Arsenal three years later for £33m.
"I don't know if it's ethical or correct to be speaking about players of other clubs", said Mourinho, whose United squad has just returned from a warm-weather training camp in Dubai.
The runaway Premier League leaders are extremely reluctant to go above the £20m they value Sanchez at given his current contract situation. Arsenal will bank more cash and have a decent player in Mkhitaryan who can help compensate the loss of Sanchez and likely departure of Mesut Ozil in July.

When asked at a press conference if United were interested in signing the 29-year-old Chilean global, Wenger said "nothing is really concrete at the moment".
Should he accept the £350,000-per-week offer, Sanchez would become one of the Premier League's highest paid players. "I'm focused on Liverpool".
