Manchester City become surprise favourites for rivals star
Pep Guardiola’s side have now become favourites to seal the signature of Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez.
The Chilean star has yet to sign a new deal at the London club and if negotiations continue to rumble on, Manchester City could well be the club that makes a move on the player.
According to reports, Pep’s side are now looking to be favourites for the player and a move would certainly anger Arsenal fans after players such as Samir Nasri, Gael Clichy and Bacary Sagna have switched sides between them.

Now, Alexis Sanchez could well be the next name on that list but would no undoubtedly hurt more than all of those names put together.
There were suggestions that Chelsea were looking the most likely Premier League club for Sanchez to move to but with Pep Guardiola now seemingly looking to line up with his former player at Barcelona, that would well seal a deal between the pair.
It has been said that Sanchez has been offered a deal worth £300,000-per week but it is yet to be seen whether the player will sign a new deal after questioning the ambition of the North London side.
Arsene Wenger’s future also remains in the air which will leave Alexis’ future in further doubt while that is sorted out.
