Manchester City could sign Alexis Sanchez for just £20million this January after reportedly reaching a ‘full agreement’ over the signing of the Arsenal forward.
Italian outlet Gianluca Di Marzio claims a deal is in place for the Chile international to join the Etihad outfits either this winter or in the summer, and that if he moves this month it will be on the cheap.
The Italian source claims the Gunners will receive just £20million for sale of Sanchez, much lower than other sources, including The Independent, who’d earlier reported Arsenal were holding out for £35m.
This wouold undoubtedly be a good signing by Pep Guardiola’s side whatever the price, with Sanchez one of the best attacking players in the world on his day.
The 29-year-old ex-Barcelona star was in brilliant form for the Gunners this season, though he hasn’t quite looked himself this season.
The Independent claim Sanchez’s no longer getting on with his team-mates in the Emirates Stadium dressing room, which has persuaded the North London club to cash in on him early.
Guardiola’s side are already leading, and running away with the Premier League and the signing of Sanchez could make the club unstoppable in their potential bid to win the quadruple – Premier League, Champions League, FA CUP and the League Cup – this season.
