Alexis Sanchez is one of Pep Guardiola’s primary targets this summer, but striking a deal with Arsenal is much easier said than done. The Gunners do not want to sell the 28-year-old superstar to Manchester City, but City are determined and confident of landing him, with Alexis open to a switch.
The attacker is currently away on international duty with Chile and was asked about his future. He did not sound like a man too eager to commit to Arsenal, but nor did he specifically say he wants to leave.
“The truth is that my agent will see to it. He knows and he will sit down with the club to see what is best,” Sanchez told Cooperativa.
“I would like many things, but right now I am only thinking about the national team.”
Alexis would be City’s marquee summer signing if they can convince Arsenal to sell, however it is clear that despite talk of a deal in the ‘coming days’, this one has a long way to go before we know for sure where the Chilean’s future lies.
