Arsenal 'quote Manchester City £40m for Alexis Sanchez'

Report: Manchester City bid for Alexis Sanchez

Arsenal sensation Alexis Sanchez could be playing for Manchester City in as little as one week, according to a report.

City were originally prepared to wait until the summer in the belief Sanchez had set his heart on a move to Etihad Stadium and a reunion with former manager Pep Guardiola.

"The two clubs have held talks in recent days and the Blues are cautiously optimistic of getting a deal done, despite the Gunners' £35 million asking price", it's said in the report, with Arsenal said to be "resigned" to losing their No. 7 mid-season. The Chilean global has been linked with PSG, Bayern Munich and even Real Madrid over the past few months, but now the Gunners' top flight rivals Manchester City are set to make a significant bid.

Joey Barton has told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, which was broadcast on TalkSPORT on 8th January, that he highly doubts that Alexis Sanchez would join Liverpool. We revealed last week that City were ready to make a renewed bid for Sanchez, having failed to land him in the summer. "I could see him going to Man City".




Cárdenas says the main sticking point is a fee, with City offering £20million for a player out of contract in June and Arsenal requesting £35million.

It is reported that Manchester City were going to wait, and sign the Chilean global on a free transfer in the summer, but the injury to Gabriel Jesus has forced their hand.

This could force City to make their move, but Arsenal already have a price tag in mind they will have to reach.

Sanchez moved to Arsenal in a £35m deal from La Liga giants Barcelona in the 2014 summer transfer window after he snubbed a move to Liverpool FC.
