"It creates a tougher challenge because every time one of the super powers spends enormous money on a player that drip-feeds down the market", he said.

Manchester City only want to sign "nice" players that will not disrupt the dressing room.

Arsenal have agreed a deal that will see a straight swap between Alexis Sanchez and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, according to British media reports.

"What is very hard is for the first time in January we were losing one of our big players", Wenger said.

The Chile superstar said goodbye to his Gunners team-mates on Friday night as he closes on a £20million move to Manchester United.

With the transfers sorted out, Wenger believes Arsenal are ready to go on a sustained winning streak.

"No. In the summer, we would probably have three transfers to do".

There were half chances for Paul Pogba and Lukaku and the unusual sight of Mourinho literally picking up Jesse Lingard and encouraging him to play on after being fouled by Steven Defour in front of the United bench.

Now he seems to be on the cusp of a move to the north-west and Xhaka praised Sanchez for his influence on the Arsenal squad. That doesn't happen in one transfer window. "I think they will be successful". The stability of the club is the most important thing.

Wenger has been heavily criticised in recent weeks after poor form and an embarrassing FA Cup exit coincided with him failing to tie star players and Mesut Ozil to new contracts. I never say anything because they know the reality. So close, so close, so close, if it doesn't happen it is not going to happen.

"It's true when Manchester City and Abu Dhabi took over the team, in that period they spent a lot".

"(Delph) will be out for a while but we don't know how long for yet", Guardiola said. "He can be serious but he has a playful side too where you can have fun with him". "In the end what we spent in the summer is quite similar to United, but they bought I think two or three players and we bought six or seven".
