Manchester City are not giving up on Alexis Sanchez just yet and has made a last-ditch attempt to sign him, according to reports.
Pep Guardiola made Sanchez his priority target at the end of last season and has been working on a deal for the Chilean but Arsenal have no intention of selling.
Wenger has publicly warned he would rather lose the forward for nothing next year than sell him this summer but City are prepared to test Arsenal’s resolve once more with a last minute bid.
According to the Guardian, City believe Sanchez wants to move to the Etihad this summer and have tabled a huge bid to sign him.
Wenger had been adamant that Sanchez will remain at the club this season and last week confirmed that the club are strong enough to take the financial hit of the Chilean leaving for free.
But City have now launched a fresh £20m + Raheem Sterling bid in order to convince Wenger into selling Sanchez. However, the boss has asked for Sergio Aguero who City are reluctant to sell.
Sanchez doesn’t look like his mind is here anymore, he was caught smirking on cameras during the game against Liverpool on Sunday, which doesn’t speak well of the Chilean.
On Monday, it was even claimed he handed in a transfer request but the club has quickly denied those claims. However, it is looking like he may not be an Arsenal player come September.
Gooners will be devastated should a move happen and Wenger who has received a backlash from fans in recent years will be wise to avoid such toxic environments at the club again.
Apparently, Sanchez wants to leave Arsenal but it’s something we can’t afford as a club not now when there is no time to get in a replacement.
