Sanchez: Arsenal demand £40m from City

  • Arsenal squad urge Arsene Wenger to sell Alex Sanchez to Man City

Arsenal are reportedly prepared to part ways with Alexis Sanchez this month, provided any club are willing to match their £40m valuation for the attacker.

However, Barton believes that the Chilean is far more likely to end up at Manchester City than Anfield.

Sanchez is out of contract at Arsenal this summer and is highly unlikely to agree a new deal, meaning he could leave for free at the end of the season.

City's interest in Sanchez has been longstanding, as they failed in a late bid in the summer to bring him to the Eithad Stadium, as noted by Lee.

In perhaps the most memorable quote of her speech, though, McDormand said, "It was really great to be in this room tonight. Three Billboards' Best Drama victory was announced at the end of the night, and it was one of several for the film.


Pep Guardiola's side are, for now, favourites to pursue the Chilean following a knee injury to Gabriel Jesus, but the club feel the valuation is too high for a player, who could be available for a Bosman in five months' time.

With Sanchez not cup-tied in the Champions League and FA Cup, it presents a rare opportunity to land a world-class player who can help with all challenges in the second half of the season.

£25 million is a bad return for a player of Sanchez's calibre, even if he does have just six months left on his deal. It appears nearly certain they will be losing the forward, and if he does stay beyond the current window, they'd receive no transfer fee for Sanchez at the end of the season. The Premier League leaders have remained tight-lipped on them severity of Jesus' injury, with unconfirmed reports suggesting that the Brazilian striker is set to be tested for a potential ruptured cruciate ligament injury.

City came close to signing the 29-year-old in the summer but Arsenal blocked the deal because of a failure to secure his replacement.
