Alexis Sanchez could still stay at Arsenal
Alexis Sanchez could stay at Arsenal with Pep Guardiola unsure whether Man City will make a move for him in January.
Ahead of City’s match with Liverpool, Guardiola said: “I don’t know what’s going to happen.
“Of course we were interested (but) at the end Arsenal decided not to sell him. So, all the best for Alexis. I know him from Barcelona. And that’s all. Sometimes the deals work, sometimes not.”
Sanchez looked set to move to Manchester on deadline day but Arsenal’s failure to secure a deal for Monaco’s Thomas Lemar meant that he stayed with the Gunners.
Reports suggested that City would be back in for him in January but if not, it could mean that he stays with Arsenal until the end of the season at least.
PSG were the other team most strongly linked with the Chilean but the signings of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe could rule them out of a move.
Sanchez’s deal expires at the end of the season and all signs point towards him leaving the club when his contract is up.
If Arsenal can not sell him in January then they will be almost certain to lose him for nothing.
