Man City Set To Miss Out On Alexis Sanchez Over Fee
Manchester City are prepared to risk missing out on Alexis Sanchez – possibly to Manchester United – rather than pay Arsenal’s £35m asking price.
City believe Sanchez is keen to join them and link up with manager Pep Guardiola for a second time, following their successful spell together at Barcelona.
Sanchez, 29, will leave the Gunners in January if a suitable offer arrives and a replacement is secured.
French side Paris St-Germain have also been linked with the Chile forward.
Sanchez is keen to leave Arsenal in the current window and Gunners boss Arsene Wenger appeared resigned to losing him in his pre-match news conference on Friday, ahead of Sunday’s trip to Bournemouth.
But he said: “A bidding war is always beneficial to the club who can take advantage of it, but we are not in that.
“It’s not that I don’t want to inform you. I don’t want to give you wrong information. At the moment, nothing is decided one way or another.
“I maintain what I said. many times, that normally he should stay here until the end of the season, but we will see.”
