Here’s the latest stories this Sunday surrounding the future of Alexis Sanchez.
The future of Alexis Sanchez is something that has rumbled on and on for months. Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea, Bayern Munich and Paris Saint Germain have all been linked with the Chilean over the course of the last six months.
Manchester City were most heavily linked, having a £60m bid provisionally accepted on transfer deadline day. However that deal did not get completed thanks to Arsenal’s inability to sign a replacement, namely, Monaco’s Thomas Lemar.
However, with Sanchez’s Deal a time the Emirates ticking towards it’s a expiry date at the end of June, the rumour mill keeps on turning.
Recent speculation has suggested that Manchester City could make a cut price move for the winger in January, with a fee of £20m-£30m being rumoured. However, according to the Sunday Mirror today, Manchester City will in fact wait until next summer where they will try to sign Sanchez on a free transfer.
However, the surprising story of the day is in the Sun in Sunday, who claim that Everton owner Farhad Moshiri will try to lure Sanchez to Goodison Park with a £30m bid in January.
Sanchez is known to want to play Champions League football and with Everton currently languishing in the relegation zone with just eight points, it seems highly unlikely that Europe’s premier tournament will be gracing Goodison Park next season.
Moshiri has already showed his ambition this summer, re-signing Wayne Rooney, as well as breaking the club transfer record several times with the signings of Michael Keane, Jordan Pickford, and Gylfi Sigurdsson. He also sanctioned approaches for Diego Costa and Olivier Giroud.
