BREAKING – Man City make improved bid for Alexi Sanchez

At around midday today Man City submitted their second bid for Arsenal star Alexi Sanchez. After the first bid of £50M was flat out rejected by the gunners City have come back with an improved bid of £60M.

Although it is unclear whether this will be enough for Arsenal to part with Sanchez it does confirm that this transfer saga is still not finished yet. Sanchez is keen on the move after telling Arsenal that he won’t be signing a new contract with his current deal expiring in July.

The deal is thought to hinge on whether Arsenal are able to get a deal done for Thomas Lemar of Monaco. If Arsenal can bring him in as a replacement then they might be willing to sell.

Arsenal have already sold Alex Oxlade Chamberlain today and will need to bring in a couple of new faces if they are to fill the void left behind.
