Arsenal & Alexis Sanchez
With six months left on his contract, Alexis Sanchez has been tipped to leave Arsenal for some time.
That’s left Arsenal in a dilemma this January.
Arsene Wenger could try to retain his Chilean star until the summer. At that point Alexis would walk out of the Emirates Stadium for nothing.
Alternatively Arsenal could sell Sanchez in the current transfer window. They’d recoup some money on the South American, but where would that leave their hopes in the Europa League and Premier League this campaign?
Pep Guardiola instructs Man City to do the deal
According to the Manchester Evening News, Pep Guardiola has now made up his mind on Alexis Sanchez.
Man City have lost Gabriel Jesus for a couple of months after the Brazilian fell injured at Crystal Palace.
The Sky Blues could still win four trophies this season, and the M.E.N have now announced the following:
Pep Guardiola wants Alexis Sanchez this month amid growing concerns over Manchester City’s ability to cope with a quadruple bid.
The preference of City’s hierarchy has been to wait until the summer to sign Sanchez, when he will become a free agent.
Arsenal want in excess of £25m for their prize asset after pulling out of a £60m deadline day deal with City in the summer.
What does that mean for Sergio Aguero?
It’s been rumoured in recent days that Sergio Aguero could leave Man City.
The likes of Real Madrid are though to be interested in the Argentine attacker.
There is no mention in the M.E.N that Sanchez’s arrival would trigger Aguero’s departure.
However one has to suspect that Aguero’s Man City exit in the summer would be likely should City sign the Arsenal forward this January.
