United believe they have won the battle for the £35 million-rated Sanchez, who is out of contract with Arsenal at the end of the season, especially after City let the Gunners know on Monday that they are no longer interested in Sanchez, given his fee and salary demands.
It may still be a sizeable margin, but Pogba is not ready to throw in the towel in the title race just yet.
"Obviously we see Manchester City in front of us and they lost", he told Sky Sports following his side's 3-0 win over Stoke City on Monday.
"Football's football. People can say what they want but we'll continue to be positive and push forward". It's good that they lose points but we have to go back to winning because we want to catch them again.

Star midfielder Paul Pogba said they can not look at their past results and must concentrate on just winning now. "If I can do more by scoring more goals - that would be great - but the most important thing is getting results, and trying to catch [Manchester City]. We just have to focus on ourselves, keep winning and I think we will be okay".
The French midfielder claimed 86 per cent of the votes, beating his team-mates Anthony Martial (nine per cent) and Romelu Lukaku (five per cent) to the accolade. "I didn't like the first half, I only like two incredible goals", Man United boss Jose Mourinho said.
Mourinho added: "I think he's happy, he's happy the way the team is playing - very adapted to him. If he stays here he is a very good player that started the season very, very well and came a little bit down but last season did fantastic things for us, helped us to win the Europa League, being one of the most important players". City would need a huge collapse and United would need a near-perfect second half of the season with 15 games remaining.
