Renowned Chilean journalist Fernando Solabarrieta of Mega and Fox Sports has tonight broken the potentially HUGE huge news that Alexis Sanchez is on his way to Manchester City from Arsenal.
In news that has ‘shocked’ Chile this evening, Solabarrieta confirmed (via Ferplei) that the 28-year-old national star is joining City where he will reunite with his former coach Pep Guardiola.
Few other details are known at this stage, but we can confirm that Solabarrieta is a big name with a good reputation in Chile so this is quite a bombshell he has dropped.
Alexis is one of Man City’s primary targets this summer, but Arsenal’s preference, other than keeping him of course, would be to sell him to Bayern Munich. However, as City Watch was able to disclose the other day, the player and his representatives are in favour of a move to the Etihad.
And if this huge news tonight has any truth, Alexis Sanchez could soon be wearing the sky blue of Manchester City.
