Man City Prepared To Miss Out On Alexis Sanchez Over Fee

Arsenal Alexandre Lacazette Alexis Sanchez

Arsene Wenger seems resigned to losing Alexis Sanchez and will need a replacement to appease the already-angry fans.

Which Manchester side will Alexis Sanchez join?

Now Manchester United are looking to make a desperate last-minute move for the forward.

Following the news last week that Philippe Coutinho had sealed his move from Liverpool to Barcelona, this week has been dominated by speculation that Alexis Sanchez is on his way to Manchester.

"Man United, there's no about it, are still the biggest football club by a million miles". The only word I can say is the same word that everybody says; he's a phenomenal player.

"Alexis Sanchez is well within his rights, as we know as players with contracts that are coming up or whatever, to sit tight".

Arsenal Ainsley Maitland-Niles

City understand Sanchez is keen to leave the Emirates Stadium in the current transfer window but they will not be pressured into overpaying by the player's representatives, Arsenal or by the interest of any other club.

The runaway Premier League leaders are reluctant to meet Arsenal's £35million valuation of the 29-year-old and are now not prepared to pay the £5m fee Sanchez's agent is demanding for felicitating any deal. So I would not like my players to read what I've said, or see me on TV, and see the manager is talking about another thing, and then thinking that they are not important. The former Juventus and Italy manager suggested that it was a mere occasion to "say hello" to a top player from a rival club.

"Let's say in the summer we have three targets - a defender, a midfielder and an attacking player".

"I understand completely why you ask this question [about Sanchez], it's your job", said Guardiola. Arsenal will bank more cash and have a decent player in Mkhitaryan who can help compensate the loss of Sanchez and likely departure of Mesut Ozil in July.

And Wenger, whose side travel to Bournemouth on Sunday as they return to Premier League action, admitted that the Chile global will only be allowed to leave if they can get a new signing over the line.

But Wenger played down talk of a move saying: "He is a good player but nothing is happening". Never. Why should I change?'
