Manchester City's January move for Alexis Sanchez could lead to another major transfer

Arsenal v Brighton and Hove Albion - Premier League

Pep Guardiola really wants Alexis Sanchez.

The Spaniard may have guided his team to the top of the Premier League table, but it seems that he is determined to acquire the services of the Arsenal forward.

After failing in a summer move for the Chilean, Man City are expected to return with another bid in January.

With Sanchez's contract set to run out in June 2018, Guardiola is hoping that a £20 million fee would be enough to tempt Arsenal's hand.

Considering Arsenal rejected advances in excess of £40 million for the Chilean in the summer, it seems unlikely that they would accept £20 million just a few months later.

However, if Arsenal were to have a change in heart and decide to sell their star man, this could have disastrous implications for one of Manchester City's players.

Man City are already filled with attacking talent; Sergio Aguero, David Silva, Bernardo Silva, Kevin de Bruyne, Gabriel Jesus and Raheem Sterling are all vying for a place in the first team.

But in order to accommodate Sanchez, The Daily Mail are reporting that Sergio Aguero may have to leave to facilitate the transfer.


Aguero will have no shortage of suitors, but according to The Daily Mail it is AC Milan who are monitoring the situation closely.

The Argentine striker is currently out injured with a broken rib sustained in a car incident in Amsterdam, but he had been at his imperious best in the opening stages of the Premier League season.

Prior to his injury, Aguero had netted seven times in eight appearances in all competitions.

He is now only one goal behind Eric Brook in Manchester City's list of all time top scorers, having notched 176 times in 261 appearances for the two time Premier League winners.

However, despite being one of the most lethal strikers in world football, Guardiola seems tempted to let him go.

Natural goalscorers are extremely hard to replace in the modern era, and it would be an unwise decision to let Aguero go under any circumstances.
