Man City receive boost in pursuit of talented attacker, but a deal is no closer

The Man City fans in the Transfer Tavern are celebrating what has been a fantastic summer so far…

The recent signing of Benjamin Mendy has served to further reinforce Pep Guardiola’s intentions for the coming season, with the Frenchman joining the likes of Ederson and Bernardo Silva in moving to Manchester.

Clearly, though, there is no sign of this spending spree slowing down, and at least according to the Independent, the Citizens have earned a boost in their pursuit of one major summer target.

According to the Independent, Alexis Sanchez is so keen on a move to Man City that he is even willing to take a pay-cut to make it happen, with the Chilean seemingly just desperate to win a few trophies at present.

This is certainly a big boost for Man City, as a reduced salary would not only allow the club to pay more for his initial purchase but it would also ensure that he is moving to the club for the right reasons. His attempts to force a move have, as of yet, been in vain, but there is still time.

However, a deal doesn’t appear any closer, with Arsene Wenger still said to be refusing to do business with any other side in the Premier League.

This update has made the Man City fans in the Transfer Tavern even more desperate to land Sanchez, given how keen he is to move to the club, but they are slowly getting resigned to missing out on the winger. It would certainly be a frustrating loss to lose out on the Chilean, as he would undoubtedly impress under Pep Guardiola.

That said, it has been a good summer for the club, and nothing is going to bring the mood of the fans in the Transfer Tavern down.
