He was linked with a move away from the club all the way up until Deadline Day when his proposed move to Manchester City did not go ahead due to Arsenal's failure to sign AS Monaco forward Thomas Lemar.

City hope Ederson has not suffered a serious injury, but Pep Guardiola said he may miss Wednesday's Champions League game at Feyenoord with Bravo set to step in.

"When we started to speak with Arsenal in the last days before it was not impossible, they wanted to make a swap with Raz", Guardiola told reporters at the City Football Academy in Manchester.

"Zero chance. Not one percent chance" to take a swap deal with Alexis because I have a lot of trust in Raz.

'Twenty-two years old, English player, there is a lot of room to improve'. So the only thing we can do if possible is to try and do a deal with cash. I don't know what will happen in the winter time.

The City boss is adamant that Sterling still has a big part to play for the club moving forward but Sterling was reportedly excited at the prospect of moving to Arsenal to secure more time on the pitch. "We will see in the future".

City will return to Arsenal in January and bid around £20m for Alexis Sanchez - whose contract is set to expire at the end of this season. "I am when the transfer window is open, but when the window closes, it's over for me and I'm it thinking about January or the end of the season".

Ferdinand, who played for Manchester United from 2002 to 2014, says all these players can still be welcomed back by their teammates, but it depends on their professionalism. We just have to reflect that the transfer window in England will be closed sooner than in Europe.
