Arsenal duo Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez will both start the 2018-19 season in Manchester, Sky Sports News reporter Kaveh Solhekol has claimed.

The Gunners are facing a battle to keep their two prized assets at the Emirates Stadium given the pair have little over six months remaining on their current deals.

Indeed, Sanchez was linked with a move to Manchester City in the summer but his proposed switch to the Premier League leaders fell through after Arsenal failed to sign Monaco star Thomas Lemar as his replacement.

Ozil’s future is also up in the air and transfer speculation surrounding the World Cup winner has intensified in recent months given his improved performances for the north London club.

Manchester United are rumoured to be interested in reuniting Ozil with his former Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford as a potential replacement for struggling Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Arsenal could opt to sell the duo in cut-price deals in the January transfer window, or otherwise Ozil and Sanchez can both leave on free transfers next summer.

Sky Sports News insider Solhekol suggested that Ozil and Sanchez would stay at the Emirates Stadium until the end of the 2017-18 season before moving to Manchester United and Manchester United in the summer for nothing.

“I think they will both stay [in January] but there is a good chance they will be playing in Manchester next season,” Solhekol told the Transfer Talk podcast on Sky Sports.
