Alexis Sanchez has completed his move to Manchester City from Arsenal, according to news sources in Chile.
The Gunners striker has been the constant source of transfer speculation for months, and it appears his future could have finally been resolved.
The news has been reported by respected Chilean journalist Fernando Solabarrieta, meaning Pep Guardiola’s pursuit of the former Barcelona man could finally bear fruit.
Sanchez was undoubtedly Arsenal’s star man this season, scoring 30 goals and claiming 19 assists.
And despite the signing of £43million Bernardo Silva, Manchester City don’t appear to be holding back in their pursuit of the title next season.
Earlier tonight, the 28-year-old featured for Chile as they drew 1-1 away to Russia in a friendly, and got an assist for Mauricio Isla’s opener.
SunSport reported yesterday how Sanchez reportedly wants to join Manchester City – but Arsenal would prefer him to go to Bayern Munich.
The Gunners forward is out of contract next year at the Emirates and looks set to depart the club this summer.
Rather than risk losing him for free in 12 months, Arsene Wenger will have to sell now if his men are to receive top dollar.
And the latest reports out of his homeland claim that the Chilean star knows exactly where he wants to playing next season – and it is in the Premier League.
Journalist Maks Cardenas, who works for Cooperativa, Mega and Canal del Futbol, claimed via his Twitter that linking up with the Citizens is Sanchez’s preferred choice.
However, Arsenal are not considering that option and will do not want to consider flogging their key man to a domestic rival.
But this latest piece of news may prove the move is a lot further down the line than we first thought.
