Alexis Sanchez to Choose Man City Ahead of Real Madrid

Share

In a story named "Sanchez's ways to leave Arsenal in January", besides claiming he wants out, the newspaper interviewed Juan de Dios Crespo, a Spanish sporting lawyer who was involved in the Neymar transfer this summer.

Wenger recently admitted that Arsenal have missed out on a fee of nearly £70million after his move to Manchester City was blocked due to the Gunners failing to land Monaco's Thomas Lemar as a replacement.

Thursday's delayed kick-off against the German side encapsulated everything Arsenal supporters have come to love and hate about their star man.

Real Madrid have also considered Bayern Munich's striker Robert Lewandowski and Borussia Dortmund forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, but Sanchez is the preferred option as he could arrive for a cut-price deal in January or as a free agent next summer.

As soon as Lemar was off, there was no time for Arsenal to find another replacement and Sanchez's move was also called off as well.

"'In the second half, Sanchez became alive".

In case you didn't know.

Real Madrid, on the other hand, are looking to revamp their forward line and with Gareth Bale not living up to expectations, Los Blancos are expected to swoop in for Sanchez in January and make a bid of close to £50 million.

Sanchez was hit hard by the dismal displays over the worldwide break and received the brunt of criticism from local journalists, who believe that he was also mentally affected by the breakdown of his transfer to City.

"He told me he is focused on the Premier League and on the Europa League".

The Arsene Wenger's side will host Germany's Cologne in Europe's second-tier competition on Thursday.

The Blues lost 3-0 to Arsenal at The Emirates last season before Chelsea exacted their revenge with a 3-0 win at Stamford Bridge back in February. It's clear that both the local media an fans are unhappy with having their biggest star left out of the running for the biggest European titles.
