Alexis Sanchez is keen to join Manchester City this January after a dressing room rift at Arsenal forced his entourage to contact the Blues.
Goal journalist, Sam Lee, is reporting Sanchez remains keen on a move to the Etihad Stadium with Arsenal prepared to sell the player to their bitter rivals.
A recent dressing room rift has occurred following the players proposed move to City failing to find a conclusion in August and as a result, the Chile international intended to push through a possible winter move.
The Arsenal forward had signed his contract with Manchester City before Arsenal refused to submit the contract to the FA when they couldn’t sign a replacement for the player.
City do not want to sign the 29-year-old this January in response to Arsenal u-turning on the deal agreed and are willing to sign the player on a free transfer next summer. However, Sanchez’ agent has contacted City hoping to convince them to overturn their decision not to sign him in the winter, and City’s answer is unknown right now.
After failing to sign Virgil Van Dijk, City will move to another centre-back with Inigo Martinez and Jonny Evans the front-runners.
Either player will cost City £30million which could leave City room in the transfer budget for Sanchez, but the Blues will not pay more than half of the £60million fee previously agreed in August.
