Transfer news: Alexis Sanchez close to Manchester United deal, Man City to drop interest

Manchester City are ready to drop their interest in Arsenal forward, Alexis Sanchez, giving their city rivals Manchester United a free run at the player.

City have been favourites to sign Sanchez since failing with a £60million deadline day bid last August.

But United blindsided their neighbours this week, by launching a £35million bid for the 29-year-old.

Arsenal want £35m for Sanchez, while the player’s agent, Fernando Felicevich, is also said to be demanding a fee of around £5m for facilitating the deal.

With Sanchez’s wage demands around £300,000-a-week, City are prepared to pull the plug.

It is however understood that Jose Mourinho will do whatever it takes to get the player and in fact, a deal could be close.

    These are mere speculation, Sanchez will not join man utd , I see him as a city player before the transfer Deadline.
    Even the Manchester city players are even welcoming him already.
