Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola accepted he had lost out in the race to sign Alexis Sanchez as Jose Mourinho insisted Friday it was still not certain the Chile forward would join Manchester United.Arsenal's Sanchez had looked set to reunite with Guardiola, his former boss at Barcelona, only for City to pull out of the deal Monday.Guardiola suggested both the player and his agent Fernando Felicevich had driven the decision to choose a move to Old Trafford rather than push for a transfer to City, but insisted that was their right.He added that it was a "pleasure" to manage Sanchez, the player he signed for Barcelona from Udinese in July 2011 .Sanchez's proposed move to Old Trafford would cost United a reported 180 million pounds when fees and salaries are factored in and involves midfielder Mkhitaryan joining Arsenal.Mourinho was vague when asked if signing Sanchez was dependent on Mkhitaryan joining the Gunners but did confirm the Armenian will not play at Burnley.
