Alexis Sanchez will switch Arsenal for Manchester City in January if playing football is a higher priority for him than earning money, says Tony Cottee.
Cottee believes Sanchez would get a far bigger wage if he waited until the summer as City would not have to pay a fee for him.
“Purely from a player’s point of view, he needs to sit tight if it’s about money,” he said on Sky Sports.
“He’s just got to sit tight because at the end he’s going to get a stack-load more money at the end of the season by being a free transfer than if he moves now. If it’s about money.
“If it’s about football, he’ll sign for Man City and move on.”
