Manchester City won't compete for Barcelona attacker Alexis Sanchez.

The Daily Star says City have ruled out a late move to dash Arsenal's plans to sign Sanchez.

The Gunners are closing in on a deal for the Chile star even though his representatives are still speaking to Liverpool, who have not given up on getting him as part of the deal to sell Luis Suarez to Barcelona.
