Manchester City Offer Arsenal Raheem Sterling, Cash For Alexis Sanchez

Alexis Sanchez’s future with Arsenal remains uncertain, although another Premier League club has made a bid for the Chilean forward.

Alexis Sanchez transfer news

Manchester City have announced that they would be willing to include midfielder Raheem Sterling in a deal for 28-year-old Sanchez. According to The Sun and several other publications, City are also offering cash to acquire the Chilean. The Sun also claims Sanchez has demanded to leave his international training camp with Chile in order to “sort out other commitments.”

Sanchez’s contract at Anfield expires in June 2018, and the Chilean has refused to sign an extension. He has reportedly expressed a desire to leave the Gunners over discontent with negotiations and management of the club.

Sterling, 22, joined City from Liverpool in 2015 for a record transfer fee of £49 million ($63 million). The Jamaican-born England winger is reportedly open to returning to London. He started his career playing for QPR’s youth team before moving to Anfield.

City is among the teams Sanchez has expressed interest in due to the possibility of re-teaming with manager Pep Guardiola, whose last year as manager of Barcelona was Sanchez’s first year playing for the Catalan club (2011-2012). The Chilean joined Barcelona from Italian team Udinese in 2011.

Manchester City were initially prepared to offer around £50 million ($65 million) for Sanchez, although Arsène Wenger has insisted that he would not be sold. It is believed that City’s latest offer includes Sterling and around £20 million ($26 million). Though no official deal has been made, City and Arsenal have held several talks in recent days.

Sanchez is due to play for Chile against Paraguay in a 2018 Russia World Cup qualifier on Thursday after returning from injury in Arsenal’s 4-0 loss to Liverpool on Sunday. The Chilean was pulled in the 62nd minute of the game.

The Gunners are also reportedly more interested in Argentine forward Sergio Aguero than Sterling, although sources claim Aguero is not seeking a transfer.
