Manchester City To Make An Attempt To Loan Sanchez In January!

Manchester City will attempt to sign Alexis Sanchez on loan next year – after blaming Arsenal for the collapse of the Chilean star’s proposed £60million move to the Etihad.

Alexis Sanchez made his first appearance of the season against Liverpool

Pep Guardiola thought he had landed his No 1 target at 10am this morning when Gunners chief executive Ivan Gazidis called his City counterpart Ferran Soriano to tell him the the Blues’ second offer for Sanchez had been accepted.

City had tabled a bid of £55million plus £5million in add-ons after having their initial £50million gambit rejected.

Gazidis informed Soriano that Arsenal had a replacement – Monaco’s Thomas Lemar – lined up.

And that the Sanchez transfer would hinge on a deal with the French champions being sealed.

But despite having a £90million offer accepted by Monaco accepted later in the day, Lemar was not interested in making the move to the Emirates.

All smiles in the Arsenal camp

Arsenal then told City that the agreement for Sanchez was off the table.
