Manchester city also are in the race for the Chilean forward, who has scored 34 goals in 72 appearances for Arsenal, since arriving 18 months ago. Real Madrid are optimistic that he would love a comeback to Spain, the country he got accustomed to while playing for Barcelona for 3 years, ie. if they offer an excellent deal.
Manchester city are reportedly making a “stunning approach” for Alexis Sanchez as a welcome present for Pep Guardiola, who is keen to take over at Etihad in the summer.
Guardiola has already “ordered,” his new employers to land the Chilean forward at any cost.
Pep has worked with Sanchez at Barcelona and wants him at Etihad when he joins this summer launch a new era of football.
Considering the fact that even Real Madrid are in the race, it is too early to decide where Sanchez would end up, given that the Gunners are “stubborn” and determined to keep him irrespective of the offers that land on the Emirates.
Pellegrini’s contract extends upto 2017 and only in this year’s August his contract was extended by one year.
Now, Pep Guardiola has his eyes set on Manchester City as his contract with Bayern Munich ends this summer and he is already making arrangements for his arrival at Etihad!
Pep wants to make Alexis Sanchez as his first signing and is stubborn to see him at Etihad by next season.
The Spaniard signed the Chile international at Barcelona from Udinese following his mindblowing performance at the 2010 World Cup, during his tenure.
City have a history behind them of signing Arsenal players like Emmanuel Adebayor, Samir Nasri, Gael Clichy and Bacary Sagna all moving to the Etihad from the Emirates.
