The Man City fans in the Transfer Tavern are still hopeful that their side will be able to sign Alexis Sanchez this summer, and it appears as though their club is too…
According to The Mirror, Man City are said to be confident regarding a deal for Alexis Sanchez, with The Citizens expecting to make an offer that could reach the £50 million mark this summer.
This could, of course, spell bad news for Arsenal, who are in a very tough situation with the Chilean. With just a year to run on his current contract, The Gunners risk losing him on a free transfer at the end of next season, which would be a financial nightmare for the club. Likewise, though, a sale would see the side directly upgrade a Premier League rival, and so that in of itself is not an ideal situation.
Clearly, Arsenal would like to tie him down to a new long-term deal, but given Arsenal’s failure to finish in the top four last season, that is beginning to look increasingly unlikely.
Arsenal clearly do not to want to budge, though, and whilst Man City are said to be confident, our landlord thinks that even if a deal can be found, it could go down to the wire this summer.
Sanchez is certainly a player worth fighting over, though, given that the Chilean was arguably Arsenal’s best player last season. Scorer of 24 league goals, he would be an upgrade for every single side in the Premier League.
