Sanchez to hand in transfer request for Man City move
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.
