Manchester City bid for Alexis Sanchez

Adjust Comment Print

There is much speculation surrounding these reports, however, with the Evening Standard's James Olley tweeting that Arsene Wenger has claimed that the club has had "no contact" with Manchester City over the sale of Sanchez.

De Bruyne was speaking after City were given a stern test by Championship side Bristol City in the first leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final. Obviously we will see what happens in this transfer period. "Everybody is doing a good job." he said.

Manchester City have made a fresh bid of £20million for Arsenal superstar Alexis Sanchez, according to a report by Fabrizio Romano and Ed Aarons of The Guardian.

"When he comes he will add something to the team".

Pep Guardiola's side needed a late Sergio Aguero victor to claim a 2-1 advantage ahead of the return clash at Ashton Gate after De Bruyne had cancelled out a Bobby Reid penalty.

Sanchez's acquisition would enhance that further still as they compete for multiple trophies and make a slip-up in the Premier League, which they lead by 15 points, even less likely to occur.

"We don't care about that", De Bruyne.

While the Belgian's performance on the pitch was impressive - scoring the equaliser - his performance off the pitch wasn't quite so good. We go there to win the game.

De Bruyne is relaxed about his own situation as he prepares to sign a new contract at the Etihad worth in excess of £200,000 a week.

'We are still in negotiations, ' he added. There is nothing really new for the moment.

He's been at the Emirates for three-and-a-half-years following his move from Barcelona in 2014, but is his time at the club numbered.
