Arsenal Accept £55m Plus Add-Ons Offer From Manchester City for Alexis Sanchez

Arsenal Accept £55m Plus Add-Ons Offer From Manchester City for Alexis Sanchez

Alexis Sanchez remains an Arsenal player, despite Manchester City reportedly having made a £60million bid, while Thomas Lemar has not left Monaco even though the Gunners are claimed to have bid upwards of £90m.

But with Lemar in action for France in their World Cup qualifier against Netherlands in Paris on Thursday [31 August] and talks over his contract expected to be complex, Arsenal have been forced to withdraw from negotiations which sees both deals collapse.

The Sanchez-to-City deal developed throughout the day with reports claiming we had agreed a deal in principal to sell the Chilean global after they tabled an offer of £55m up front with £5m in add ons.

But can they really consider it a positive that they will keep a player who has made no secret of his desire to leave and one who has just a year remaining on his current contract at the Emirates?

"As it stands, Arsenal pull out of Lemar negotiations.So Alexis, much to his pain, stays".

All of that means Arsene Wenger will need to strengthen his midfield and forward options before the transfer window shuts, particularly after the club's disastrous start to the season.

The remaining two electric motors are connected to the front axles, delivering an additional 120 kW of power. The limited production run of only 275 units has already been completely sold out, and understandably so.

The Gunners have allowed England global Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to join Premier League rivals Liverpool in a £35m deal and could see Chilean Alexis Sanchez join Manchester City in a deal worth over £50m.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is a Liverpool player.

Wenger is under pressure to top up the ranks after departure of Oxlade-Chamberlain and the Manchester City striker would certainly go some way to easing the pain of that move to rivals Liverpool and Sanchez opting to rejoin Pep.

With Sanchez set to leave at the end of the season at the conclusion of his contract, he could sign a deal with City worth £300,000-a-week and work with Guardiola, with whom he worked with during the pair's time together at Barcelona. With the prospect of losing Sanchez for nothing in less than a year, Arsenal may be keen to cash in while they can.

It's a rather frustrating affair for the Premier League champions, who had put in some effort to put the deal together for the Arsenal man, with a £35m bid.

"Manchester City came in earlier today with a second offer for the Chile striker - of £55m, plus £5m in add-ons - but it has come down to Arsenal being able to sign a new attacking player".
