Pep Guardiola doesn’t want to give up on signing Alexis Sanchez despite Wenger’s desire to keep the 28 year old.
City has been linked with Sanchez all summer and have already had a £45m bid knocked back by Arsenal but they aren’t willing to give up on the Chilean until the transfer window closes.
Guardiola has dropped a huge hint that he still hopes to sign Sanchez from Arsenal before the transfer window closes in a few days.
Speaking in his pre match press conference ahead of this weekend’s round of Premier League fixtures, Guardiola remained coy on his club’s pursuit of Sanchez.
‘He’s an Arsenal player, like Mbappe is a Monaco player, like Johnny Evans is a West Bromwich Albion player, he said.
‘You have to ask Alexis. He’s a player and the other clubs have to talk about it. Normally I don’t talk about players from other clubs.’
Guardiola’s chances of signing Sanchez this summer is almost zero because Wenger has decided he will keep the striker at all cost, even if it means allowing him leave for nothing next year.
The club is expected to sell Chamberlain – another player who is in the final year of his contract – to Chelsea and that would strengthen Wenger’s desire to keep Sanchez.
Arsenal have lost key players to City in the past, which left Gooners fuming. The manager would be keen to avoid such happening again.
