LONDON -- Chelsea cannot compete with the spending power of Manchester City and Manchester United in the battle to sign the very best players in the transfer market, according to manager Antonio Conte. On Monday, United completed a swap deal with Arsenal to acquire Alexis Sanchez on a lucrative contract, sending Henrikh Mkhitaryan to the Emirates Stadium, while City spent in excess of £200 million last summer to bolster Pep Guardiola's squad.
LONDON -- Arsene Wenger has admitted he tried to sign Henrikh Mkhitaryan two years ago, before he joined Manchester United, and says he is contemplating using the Armenian as a deeper-lying central midfielder. Mkhitaryan made the switch from United to Arsenal on Monday in a deal that sent Alexis Sanchez the other way. For Wenger, that means he finally ended up with a player he met with personally in 2016 in an attempt to convince him to sign from Borussia Dortmund.

Conte is right that the very top bracket of the transfer market has left Chelsea behind. Not sure the board will appreciate him telling the world as they try to tie down Hazard & Courtois though... #cfc
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
