City tell the press: We’re ready to walk away from Alexis Sanchez deal despite Man United interest

In a briefing to the press, Manchester City have insisted that they will not be pressured by Manchester United’s interest in Alexis Sanchez and are prepared to walk away from a January deal.

City value Alexis at £20million in light of his contract expiring in June, but Arsenal have been asking for something closer to £35million.

And that has encouraged Manchester United to try their luck, despite Sanchez’s preference to join Pep Guardiola at City. With Gabriel Jesus due back in a couple of weeks, the need to add Alexis this month has lessened.

A host of journalists, briefed by a Manchester City club official, have now revealed City’s stance, which puts the Sanchez deal in jeopardy it would seem.
