United are the favourites to sign Sanchez following reports Manchester City have dropped their interest in Sanchez due to the player’s financial demands.

And after watching his side beat Stoke City 3-0 in the Premier League, Mourinho appeared in confident move about his pursuit of the 29-year-old forward.

“I’m not confident; just relaxed,” Mourinho told talkSPORT.

“[I’m] just relaxed with the feeling he is an Arsenal player and with the feeling he can stay there. Also with the feeling he can move, and if he moves, I think we have a chance.

“But most probably, a player like him has other big clubs interested [in him], who knows?

“I think him; Mr [Arsene] Wenger and Mr [Ivan] Gazidis are the ones that know really well what is going to happen.”
