Breaking News: Alexis Sanchez to Manchester City is as good as done
While the future of Alexis Sanchez for Arsenal continue to be a subject of intense speculation, emerging reports have indicated that Arsenal have agreed a deal in principle for the player to join Manchester City in January.
Sanchez has stalled over signing a new deal with Arsenal since last season and he was linked with a move Paris Saint Germain and Manchester City in the summer. He was close to joining the Citizens in the summer but Arsenal’s failure to sign Thomas Lemar scuppered Sanchez’s move on transfer deadline day of the summer.
The Chilean was spotted in Paris earlier this week and it was claimed by various reports that he could join PSG in January. However, Arsene Wenger remained adamant that they have not received offers for him. “We have not been approached by anyone.” He said
According to TMW, Arsenal have agreed to let Sanchez leave for Manchester City in January,. The Gunners accepted a £32m bid and the forward will earn a whopping £12m-a-year on a deal spanning the next three years, as claimed by the report.
We cannot ascertain the veracity of this report but it will not be a wise decision for Arsenal to allow their best player leave half way the season. It is said that Pep Guardiola wants Sanchez at the Etihad regardless of his otherwise strong squad.
The January transfer window is just hours left to be opened, we await to see what happens.
