Huge news coming from Chile regarding Sanchez’s future
Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez has reportedly decided to join Manchester City.
Sanchez joined Arsenal from Barcelona ahead of 2014-15 season and along with Mesut Ozil formed a ferocious attacking duo at the Emirates. But they didn’t get the due support from their teammates. A string of poor performances and Wenger’s lack of desire to spend on bringing some big names frustrated them. Missing out on a Champions League spot just came as an icing on the cake.
According to Chilean journalist Fernando Solabarrieta, Alexis Sanchez has finalised his move from Arsenal to Manchester City.

Sanchez’s future has remained unclear from last couple of months amidst reports he rejected a new contract offer from Arsenal. Chelsea, Bayern Munich and Manchester City all have been linked with a move for the 28-year-old Chilean.
Now Chilean journalist Fernando Solabarrieta claims that Sanchez has finalised a summer move to Manchester City.
Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is a known admirer of Sanchez from their time together at Barcelona where Guardiola previously managed the Chilean. If rumours are true, then Sanchez would be the second attacking addition of Guardiola this summer having acquired the services of Bernardo Silva already.
Sanchez has scored 30 goals this season and notched up further 19 assists for Arsenal across all competitions.
