Confirmed ! – Man City Confirms Interest In Sanchez, Proposed £50million Deal Scheduled

Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.

Alexis Sanchez has yet to sign a new contract with Arsenal.

Last summer Arsenal fans lived in fear of Juventus’ reported interest in Alexis Sanchez. After selling Paul Pogba to Manchester United, the Italian club were awash with cash and were looking to spend big on a marquee signing.

Eventually Juve moved Gonzalo Higuaín, easing the fears of Arsenal fans, who ironically enough were hoping their club could land the Argentinian attacker from Napoli.

However, despite ongoing contract negotiations between Sanchez and Arsenal, the Chilean has yet to sign a new deal and there have been reports of renewed interest from Juventus, along with stories linking the attacker with moves to Manchester City.

Although the Gunners have time on their side, if Sanchez doesn’t sign a new deal with the club before next summer, then the Arsenal hierarchy might be forced to sell their prized asset rather than risk losing him on a free transfer in 2018.

The prospect of this continues to haunt Arsenal fans, as does City’s interest, which hasn’t dissipated in recent weeks.

Indeed, this morning the club’s official website hosted a story originally published in the Sunday Mirror, connecting City with a move for Sanchez.

Although City could simply argue that they are simply posting transfer gossip, it has left some fans questioning their motivation behind for publishing the story.
