Manchester City reacted angrily when asked by Alexis Sanchez‘s agent to pay more money in wages and fees, and in the process, have left the deal, leaving its rivals Manchester United with a clear run at closing up the deal for the Arsenal forward in the coming days. 🙁
Initially, Man Blue made it clear that they would walk away from the deal if the total price of a January move did not suit them, and that is exactly what has happened.
According to Goal, Sanchez’s agent, Fernando Felicevich, informed Man Blue in the past 48 hours that Man United are willing to pay more money in both wages and extra fees. They were less than impressed to learn of his demands for more money. Man Blue’s response was straight, “We are no longer interested.”
Pep Guardiola, Man Blue’s manager, is believed to be on board with the decision to no longer pursue Alexis, despite making the forward his No.1 target.
Well, Alexis Sanchez has indicated that he would be open to joining Manchester United in the past few days, and Guardiola is happy to move on because he now believes the 29-year-old is not 100 per cent committed to playing for him.
