Manchester City rejects Arsenal's price on Alexis Sanchez

Manchester City rejects Arsenal's price on Alexis Sanchez

The latest reports in this breathless saga have Manchester City refusing to meet Arsenal's financial demands and preparing to walk away from any deal; they are unwilling to match the £35m demanded by Arsenal and instead want to pay £20m. Asked if it was possible to replace Sanchez, Wenger said, "Replaceable in the way, do we find exactly the same player?"

"I wasn't inside but, from the outside, I think [Mark] is a guy with great qualities to do the job for them".

It will be an opportunity for the team to redeem themselves for a 2-2 draw against the same opposition earlier this season, but spotlight is taken by the Alexis Sanchez speculations.

Now, I can understand the Jack Wilshere situation. The World Cup victor has openly called for marquee signings in the past, and Wenger admitted that Arsenal's ability to fight for trophies could be just as important as the player's salary. "So he wants to fight as well for the Premier League".

When asked if United were interested in signing the 29- year-old Chilean global, who is out of contract at the end of the season, Wenger said "nothing is really concrete at the moment".


Both Nasri and Van Persie ended up at the Manchester club they were least expected to join when their respective transfer sagas began, so perhaps Sanchez will follow suit.

"And I can also understand why, supposedly, Man City would put two fingers up at Arsenal for not selling him back in the summer when they wanted and now playing hard ball". The only word I can say is the what everyone says - he is a phenomenal player. Gabriel Paulista and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain were both sold in the summer, Francis Coquelin left for Valencia this week, while Theo Walcott and Mathieu Debuchy could both be headed for the exit this month as well. Everyone is onto what you are trying to do in the market, and buying the best players costs an bad lot of money.

In any big transfer involving more than one interested party, there are games of bluff and counter-bluff, with the semantics of press conference comments often hidden beneath layers of caveats and intentionally misleading statements. I am not going [to speak about it].

"Of course I want a quick resolution", he told reporters at Arsenal's north London training base.
