City plot final £70m Sanchez bid



Alexis Sanchez in Arsenal training

Manchester City are reportedly set to plot a final bid in the range of £70million for Arsenal ace, Alexis Sanchez.

The two-time Premier League champions have had numerous transfer links with a move for the Chilean international in recent times.

Despite that, though, the Gunners boss, Arsene Wenger has remained resolute on his decision that Sanchez will stay at Arsenal.

The 28-year-old’s future is still very much in doubt because of the fact that his deal runs out next summer.

And there are no indications as at this very point in time that Sanchez is ready to agree new terms.

According to a report from The Telegraph, City want to make a last-ditch effort to land the attacker for £60m.

The same report has even suggested that the Mancunians are ready to pay the former Barcelona player £400,000 a week.

But the North Londoners are refusing to sell and want to risk losing him on a free transfer next year.

Sanchez has made a decision to lower his wage demands to force through a move to the Etihad this summer.

The 28-year-old had made a huge demand of about £400,000 a week to remain at Arsenal, according to concrete reports.

This has now left Wenger with a difficult option to make should a huge offer come around.

However, Wenger is not ready to sell his star player to a direct Premier League rival.

Sanchez hit the back of the net 30 times in 51 games across all competitions for Arsenal during the 2016/17 season.

Gunners open to losing Sanchez on free transfer

Arsenal boss, Arsene Wenger has revealed that the Gunners are ready to lose forward, Alexis Sanchez on a free transfer.

The French tactician has insisted he will make the Chilean international a “financial sacrifice” rather than sell him this summer.

Meanwhile, Sanchez particularly is actually very much eager to make a departure from the Gunners before the summer window ends.

And that is the case as the Chilean star is on his own part pining for a move away soon.

Sanchez also dropped a strong hint which gives a suggestion of his impending exit from the club last week Tuesday.

That is the latest development as the Chilean star has admitted that he wants to play in the Champions League.

Meanwhile, the Gunners will only feature in the Europa League after failing to qualify for this season’s elite club competition.

And that is as a result of their placing fifth on the English Premier League standings during the 2016/17 campaign.

« We do not want him at Real Madrid anymore »



Real Madrid are in a bad situation in the league, the club of Casa Blanca is currently third in Liga behind Valencia and Barça, the Catalans have taken a big lead, and this could definitely make them lose the championship in the winter. And a Madrid club player is highlighted in these poor results.

101 million euros for his transfer, 23 injuries since, 73 matches missed or 55% of the matches of his team. Statistics that would drive any coach and / or leaders crazy. You have it ?

These are the figures of Gareth Bale since his arrival at Real Madrid in the summer of 2013 from Tottenham. Whoever has played only nine games in the year 2017/2018 seems to have seriously undermined the patience of its leaders. Just back from a calf injury, he was summoned by the Welsh side to face France in a friendly last Friday, but made the choice to stay in Madrid to prepare for the derby against Atletico Madrid. But, the blow, the Welsh injured during training last Thursday and will be absent about a month.

What continue to fuel the rumors of transfers but especially what cause irritation of the board leader. The latter, tired of not being able to align their triplet « BBC », have made a decision that should be irrevocable, according to the Madrid newspaper AS: It must leave this summer. And the Spanish media also explains that the president of the Madrilenian club, Florentino Perez, added:

« We do not want him at Real Madrid anymore »
Yet strongly criticized last season, Bale had managed to avoid a departure last summer, claiming to want to win at Real Madrid. This year, his start to the season does not plead in his favor and he seems to have exhausted all his jokers in the Spanish capital. The departure of the Welsh international therefore seems to have been recorded.

The rumor of a return to the Premier League, Manchester United in particular, has been reactivated but the number of contenders could quickly evolve in view of the quality of the player. Be careful though, the Welsh is signed until 2022, and Florentino Perez is determined not to sell his player.

Unless a return to its best level, it is difficult to see how the Welsh international could reverse the situation. Zinedine Zidane even found his replacement for 100 million euros.
