Arsenal refuses Man City’s £50m bid for Alexis Sanchez



Arsenal refuses Man City’s £50m bid for Alexis Sanchez
English Premier League side, Arsenal have rejected a £50million bid from rivals Manchester City for Chilean forward Alexis Sanchez. Sanchez joined Arsenal from Barcelona – where he played under current City manager Pep Guardiola – in 2014 for a fee of about £35m. The 28-year-old, who scored 24 league goals in the 2016-17 season, is out of contract next year and wants to reunite with his former boss. Arsenal has rebuffed all approaches for Sanchez, and would like City’s Raheem Sterling as part of any deal before the August 31 transfer deadline. Sanchez, who made his first appearance for the Gunners this season against Liverpool at Anfield last Sunday, had been quoted as saying, “I have made my decision, but now the decision has to be taken by Arsenal.
“It depends on them. I have to wait to know what they want. My idea is to play and win the Champions League. It’s a dream I have had since I was little.” Manager Arsene Wenger however has insisted that Sanchez will stay at the club, saying last month that “He will be here for this season and if we manage to do it for more seasons, we will do it as well.”Arsenal lost 4-0 to Liverpool last Sunday and will play their next league game against Bournemouth at the Emirates Stadium.
