Alexis Sanchez to Manchester City seems to be a deal that should happen, but since his deadline day move to the Etihad collapsed it hasn’t been certain if it will.
However, a comment this evening by Bayern Munich chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge may be the strongest proof yet that the 28-year-old is Manchester-bound for his desired reunion with Pep Guardiola.
Bayern were one of the clubs keen on Alexis in the summer, along with French giants PSG, and Rummenigge was quizzed by Sky Germany about the prospect of a renewed move for the Arsenal superstar.
Rummenigge’s response not only ruled Bayern out of the running but seemed to imply that he is joining Man City in the near future.
“I think Sanchez has already decided which club [to join], so I suppose that the door will be closed in January,” Rummenigge said to the microphones of Sky Germany.
“That’s not an issue, and he is no direct substitute for Robert Lewandowski as he is not a real centre forward.”
Unless of any major surprises, Alexis is set to get his wish with the big question remaining if he will join Manchester City in January or will the two sides wait until next summer when he is available on a free transfer?
City’s defence have to try to keep out Alexis tomorrow when Arsenal visit the Etihad, the Chilean having scored in each of the last three seasons against the club he looks poised to join soon.
Sergio Aguero became Manchester City’s all-time record goalscorer with his goal against Napoli.
