The chances of Alexis Sanchez moving to the Etihad this summer look to be increasing, with the Chile striker understood to be high on Manchester City’s summer transfer list.
Sky Sports News understands City have grown increasingly interested in the Arsenal striker, who has 14 months left on his current deal and has given no indication he is ready to extend.
Earlier this week, Chilean media reported Sanchez had already decided to move to City and was “very close” to agreeing a deal.
Radio Cooperativa reported that City are prepared to pay a £50m transfer fee, in addition to wages of around £200,000-per-week.
In recent weeks, Sanchez has also been linked with moves to Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain.
Sanchez played under City boss Pep Guardiola at Barcelona and the 28-year-old 108-cap international has grown increasingly frustrated in north London this season.
