Manchester United will scrap mega-money moves for Gareth Bale and Antoine Griezmann if they land Alexis Sanchez, according to reports.
The Chilean international looks certain to leave the Emirates this month with Manchester United and City battling for his signature.
Now the Daily Mail are claiming Sanchez’s move could see United end their interest in bringing in another attacker in the summer.
Real Madrid star Gareth Bale has been linked with a move back to the Premier League after another injury-plagued season for the Welshman.
And United have been long-time admirers of Griezmann and even failed with a bid last summer after the Frenchman had a change of heart.
The Gunners are demanding a £35million fee for Sanchez, 29, and his agent Fernando Felicevich is also demanding a £5m payment.

Sanchez can pocket an extra £60,000-a-week if he snubs a reunion with Pep Guardiola to move to Old Trafford.
Desperate United boss Jose Mourinho will “fight” to land the Arsenal contract rebel this month.
He plans to hijack the striker’s move to City by offering Sanchez a whopping £350,000-a-week wages and a £25million signing-on fee.
Mourinho will also pay Arsenal £30m and Sanchez’s agent £5m — fees Guardiola refuses to cough up.
