Manchester City are closing in on a stunning summer transfer for Arsenal forward, Alexis Sanchez, according to reliable reports.
The Gunners star has been a subject of transfer interest from several clubs in Europe, after failing to agree a contract extension at the Emirates, with reports that the 28-year-old wants a significant pay rise to remain with the Gunners.
Although, there are suggestions that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is ready to increase Sanchez’s wage bill but the Chilean forward has set his sights on leaving the club this summer.
German giants, Bayern Munich and Manchester City have been the frontrunners in a potential deal for the Chilean, with reports that both sides are ready to meet with the forward’s demand and prise him away from the Emirates.
However, recent reports have it that Sanchez is eyeing a reunion with Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola and will prefer a move to the Etihad, although the Gunners will be reluctant to allow one of the best performers join a league rival.
Reports in Fox Sports have it that Sanchez will be moving to Manchester City after agreeing a deal with the club’s representatives.
Pep Guardiola is known to an avid admirer of the former Barcelona star and will try to force a move that will have him at the Etihad this summer.
