Manchester City Heavily Linked With This Arsenal Talisman: The Perfect Fit At The Etihad?

Alexis Sanchez has undoubtedly been one of the best players for Arsenal in the current season. However, current circumstances surrounding the Chilean ace has not been on the bright side for the London club, as they fear that Sanchez might leave the club at the end of the ongoing season. The ex-Barcelona forward’s contract ends next year, and reportedly he has denied penning down a new one.

This current standoff between Sanchez and Arsenal has evoked a number of big name clubs from the Premier League to pursue the Chilean marksman to be a part of their team for the next season. Reportedly, among all the others, Manchester City is considered to be the frontrunner for securing the services of the forward for the forthcoming season.

Present coach of Manchester City, Pep Guardiola is unsure over the future of his team’s talisman Sergio Aguero with the club in the next season. Reportedly, the Argentine is looking to make a move out of the Etihad Stadium, his probable destination being the Citizens’ arch rivals Manchester United. Alexis Sanchez can perfectly fit into the role of the attacking spearhead for Manchester City in case the Argentine’s rumoured transfer materialises in the next transfer window.


The Spaniard also has a good experience of playing with the Chilean ace for quite a long time during his managerial days at the Spanish club Barcelona. In fact, it was Guardiola who brought him into the Catalan club from the Italian side Udinese in 2011, making him pair with the Argentine skipper and arguably the best player in the world Lionel Messi. The duo worked wonders under the Spanish coach and brought in a number of accolades to Nou Camp before the Chilean chose to move to the Premier League with the Gunners in 2014.

Arsenal is at present having a dearth of trophies, which has reportedly made the Chilean impatient about the managerial tactics of their long time coach Arsene Wenger. There have been certain problems between the two as well in the recent past, with Wenger denying his Chilean ace a place in his starting eleven for quite a few matches. This has, evidently, deteriorated the relation between the French manager and the forward in the present season.

Reportedly, Manchester City is planning a huge bid of £50 million to bag the Chilean marksman for strengthening their options up front in the next season. The cordial chemistry between their present coach Guardiola and Alexis Sanchez from their Barcelona days might also come in handy for the Citizens for a prosperous season next term.
