Sanchez bitterness at staying
Manchester City’s Claudio Bravo has said his Chile teammate Alexis Sanchez was frustrated that a move to the club fell through.
City had a £55m (€60m) bid for the Arsenal forward accepted on transfer deadline day last week but the Gunners’ failure to find a replacement saw the switch collapse.
City goalkeeper Bravo was with Sanchez on international duty at the time and witnessed his reaction. He said: “We were talking in Chile. He went from happiness to bitterness in a few hours, although it’s all in the past now. The transfer didn’t happen because a player didn’t go to Arsenal and everything collapsed.
“We would have loved to have him here, but the market gives you these time limits and the rush is not good. This time it was not possible, but hopefully we have him here in the future.”
