Jose Mourinho feels relaxed over the potential deal to bring Alexis Sanchez to Manchester United and confirms other clubs are interested.
However, all the post-match talk surrounded the future of Sanchez.
Manchester City have ended their pursuit of the Arsenal forward after they were informed United were prepared to make a better financial offer but Mourinho remained coy on the possibility of signing the Chile international.
"I'm not confident, but also not unconfident, just relaxed with the feeling that he is an Arsenal player," he told a press conference.
"With a feeling that he can stay there and also with the feeling that he can move. If he moves, I think we have a chance but I think most probably a player like him has other big clubs interested and who knows? I think Mr Wenger and Mr Gazidis are the ones that know really what is going to happen.
"I don't know anything about it. Today I don't have one single information."
Chelsea are also interested in signing Sanchez, Sky Sports News understands.
Antonio Conte rates the forward highly, and revealed last Friday that he tried to sign the then Udinese player when he was Juventus manager.
Chelsea are yet to make a formal offer for Sanchez, but they do have a history of flying under the radar when it comes to signing players.
Mourinho admits there are other clubs interested in signing the Arsenal man.
Speaking to Sky Sports, he said: "I'm not going to speak about hypothetical situations. He is an Arsenal player. There are probably other clubs interested - I feel I shouldn't speak about an Arsenal player."
