Pep: Why Man City Failed To Sign Sanchez

Pep: Why Man City Failed To Sign Sanchez

By SL International - Sep 10, 2017 02:03 PM
Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola has explained why the Citizens failed to sign Arsenal superstar, Alexis Sanchez.
 
 
City made late attempts to sign the Chilean forward, with reports claiming the Gunners had already accepted a bid of 60 million for the player on Deadline Day.
 
However, Guardiola claims Arsenal wanted to make a swap deal which would have seen Raheem Sterling move to the Emirates, and the Spaniard was not in favour of that proposal.
 
In the last days, they [Arsenal] wanted to make swap with us,” Guardiola was quoted as saying by Mirror. 
 
“I said zero chance, not even one per cent chance, because I trust Raheem.”
 
Sanchez's contract runs out at the end of the season and Guardiola was asked about a potential transfer in January.
 
"I don't know what's going to happen in the meantime. He's an Arsenal player," he added.
 
"Of course we were interested in him, but Arsenal decided not to sell him, so I wish Alexis all the best. He's a player I knew from my time in Barcelona.
 
"We will see in the future. Now I'm not concerned. I am when the transfer window is open, but when the window closes, it's over for me and I'm it thinking about January or the end of the season."

Man City did a good job for not signing Sanchez, he is out of shape now, he won't add any value to your team.
