It’s said that a number of top teams have made approaches for Sanchez.

But they’ve all decided to back off as the Chilean is believed to have his heart set on the Etihad.

However, the report adds that a January move is now on the cards following an injury to Gabriel Jesus.

The striker is out for up to two months after suffering knee ligament damage last weekend.


The attacker is certain to leave Arsenal after entering the final six months of his contract

And Sanchez is being lined up as the perfect replacement as teams get stuck into the second half of the Premier League season.


It’s also been claimed that the 29-year-old played a huge role in Carlo Ancelotti’s downfall at Bayern Munich.

The tactician apparently made Sanchez his top target last summer and believed he had fought off competition from Paris Saint-Germain for the attacker’s signature.

However, Bayern failed to secure a deal, leading to Ancelotti’s relationship with his board going down the drain.
