Manchester City boss makes surprising remark about potential Arsenal summer transfer target

Manchester City have had a tough season in the Premier League and there’s hope amongst Citizens supporters here in the pub that Pep Guardiola will have a better stab of things next season.

The former Barcelona manager isn’t blessed with the sort of talent he’s had under his managerial gaze in the past and it’s shown, with City still chasing the top-four with just a handful of games remaining.

And City will want to ensure they secure a top-four place come the end of the season as they hope to lure new talent in with the promise of playing Champions League football next season.

But Guardiola has been very frank this week about potential target Alexis Sanchez, with the Spaniard saying in the Independent that he reckons the competition for the Chilean’s signature will be vast.

“Put it that Kevin De Bruyne had one year left on his contract, see how many teams would have him,” Guardiola said. “Normally the big players have two, three years (on a) contract.

“All the clubs in the summertime are going to try to improve. How do you improve the teams? Better players. Of course (people will watch) all the players around the world. Alexis is one of them. They are going to know his situation,” he said.

Whether this puts City’s chances of bringing Sanchez in over the summer is yet to be seen but City fans here in the pub would love to Sanchez move to the Etihad this summer!
