Manchester City are getting increasingly confident, that they can lure Alexis Sanchez
from Arsenal, in a deal potentially worth up
Pep Guardiola is eager to reunite with the Chile forward, who he worked with during his time at Barcelona and City will test the Gunners’ resolve to keep the 28-year-old.
Sanchez, who is currently on Confederations
Cup duty in Russia, has one year left on his
current contract at the Emirates.
He is believed to be Guardiola’s top transfer
target this summer and Etihad chiefs are
convinced they can seal the deal for Sanchez,
who is also wanted by Bayern Munich and
City are understood to be waiting until the
Confederations Cup is over, before making an
official approach for a man who has 72 goals
and 37 assists in 145 games for the Gunners.
Arsenal have also tabled a new contract worth
£275,000-a-week, to keep their star man.
