Sanchez to hand in trans­fer re­quest for Man City move

Daily Trust - - SPORT -

Alexis Sanchez is said to be con­sid­er­ing hand­ing in a trans­fer re­quest to Arse­nal in or­der to push through a move to Man City.

Ac­cord­ing to The Mir­ror, Sanchez is so keen to play for for­mer boss Pep Guardi­ola that he is will­ing to up­set sup­port­ers, team­mates and Arsene Wenger alike by hand­ing in for­mal no­tice of his in­ten­tion to leave.

That re­quest could well be re­jected by Wenger, who main­tains that he has no plans to sell any of his ‘con­tract rebels’, even if the £50mil­lion fee be­ing touted is of­fered by Man City.

Sanchez has re­port­edly priced him­self out of moves to PSG and Bay­ern Mu­nich by de­mand­ing £400,000 a week, though ap­par­ently this won’t put off Arse­nal’s Premier League ri­vals, Man City, who ap­pear to have more money than Scrooge McDuck.

Arse­nal are pre­pared to of­fer a ‘com­pro­mise’ deal and of­fer Sanchez a one year ex­ten­sion with an in­creased wage of £300,000 a week and to agree to re­view the sit­u­a­tion next sum­mer, when of­fers from other clubs could be con­sid­ered de­pend­ing on how well Arse­nal’s sea­son has gone.
