The Chilean appears to be stalling on
contract verbalizes at the Emirates Stadium and
the Blues should be on red alert about the
chance of signing him..
Manchester City have already missed out
on Alexis Sanchez once, they will not optate
to again.
It was Manuel Pellegrini, City's former
manager, who revealed this week that he
endeavored to bring his countryman to the Etihad
Stadium in 2014, only to be scuppered by
FFP regulations.
Not that City couldn't afford him. Uefa
sanctions denoted the club's Champions
League squad had to be reduced and,
according to Pellegrini, there was no room
for Alexis.
City can certainly afford him now, and they
would certainly make room. Sergio Aguero
has responded very well to the challenge of
upping his overall game but the impending
advent of Gabriel Jesus is not the only threat
to the Argentine's game time.
City are thought to be keeping tabs on a
number of astronomically immense-name strikers, and Alexis will
surely be one of them.
His current contract impasse with Arsenal
suggests he is killing time, reluctant to
commit himself to a club which has shown
little sign that they are yare to conclusively win
the designation.
If he is to angle for a move this summer,
City will surely be at the front of the queue.
Pellegrini, now at Hebei China Fortune, may
plot a £500,000-per-week deal to lure
Alexis to China but the player still feels he
has a lot to prove at the very top of the
'Judge vulnerably susceptible City next season'
And with Arsenal verbalized to be offering
£180,000-per-week, there is scope for City
to ameliorate his hebdomadal earnings without
breaking the bank - they will let six players
go when their contracts expire, including
Yaya Toure and his earnings of more than
£200,000 a week.
