Alexis Sanchez now “likely” to sign for Manchester City this summer
The bookies go odds-on that Sanchez leaves Arsenal to join Manchester City
July 11th, 2017
Alexis Sanchez has remained rather coy about where he will be playing football next season, although the bookies think that his silence speaks volumes.
Arsene Wenger admits he is hopeful rather than confident over whether Sanchez will remain part of things at the Emirates Stadium, with Sky Bet going 11/8 that he remains with the London club.
Manchester City’s interest in the Chilean seems very real, with the same bookmaker now chalking up 8/13 that Pep Guardiola manages to sign him this summer.
Sanchez has shone brightly for Arsenal since arriving three summers ago, scoring 52 goals in 103 Premier League appearances, while he has helped the London club win two FA Cups.
However, the Gunners won’t be competing in the Champions League next term and, at the age of 28, the Chilean might consider it’s time for a new challenge in the colours of Manchester City.
City are currently title favourites and a successful capture of Sanchez would surely see the odds shortening about this eventuality, even if Guardiola’s side were well off the pace last term.
