Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has denied reports that he reached out to Alexis Sanchez in bid to convince him to join his side.
The Spanish manager quoted the journalist to be a liar. “The journalist is a liar. He’s a liar,” Guardiola responded in his pre-match press-conference.
Arsenal are also looking to offer a new contract to their star men Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil as their current deals run out in 2018.
Both the players are demanding wages similar to that of world record signing Paul Pogba. Arsene Wenger may have realised that keeping his superstars will be tougher than expected.
Alexis Sanchez’s central attacking role has benefited Arsenal as the Chilean has bagged 11 goals in the league this season.
Since leaving the Camp Nou in 2014, Sanchez has won the FA Cup with the Gunners and also inspired Chile to two Copa America triumphs and may be tempted to join Guardiola should Arsenal not assemble the right pieces to challenge for top honours.
Alexis Sanchez is a transfer target for Guardiola but recent reports suggesting a personal phone call were termed as false by the new Manchester City manager.
