The Man City fans in the Transfer Tavern would love to see Alexis Sanchez at the Etihad next season…
However, that is looking increasingly unlikely, with the Independent reporting that the player himself is preparing to spend another season at the Emirates – as Arsenal are refusing to let him move to Man City for less than £90 million.
This would be a disappointing blow for Man City, of course, as Sanchez would have been a remarkable capture for the club. Guardiola is said to be a big fan, and his arrival would likely have changed Man City’s fortunes entirely. A player that is able to create magic on his own, there is no doubting how much he would bring to the table for the Citizens.
Given that Sanchez’s current contract expires next summer, it is certainly a risky tactic from Arsenal, but Arsene Wenger appears insistent that the Chilean plays for the club next season.
That being said, perhaps the damage of this news can be dulled somewhat when you consider what Man City already have at their disposal. Recent signing Bernardo Silva is joining the likes of Raheem Sterling and Kevin De Bruyne in the Man City attack – potentially leaving little space for Alexis Sanchez.
Despite that, the Man City fans in the Transfer Tavern are finding it tough to get any positives out of this news…
