Alexis Sanchez: Burley reveals why Man Utd’s interest is no problem for Man City

That is the verdict of ESPN FC pundit and former Chelsea midfielder Craig Burley.

Both Manchester City and Manchester United are keen on signing Sanchez, who is out of contract at Arsenal at the end of the season.

City are only prepared to offer £20million for him this month though, with United more willing to match Arsenal’s asking price which is more towards £30m.

But Burley says that is not an issue for Sanchez who should just wait to get his desired moved in the summer.

“It’s not a problem, it’s not a problem,” Burley said.

“The player decides. It’s not a problem, not an issue. It’s Arsenal’s problem now.

Alexis Sanchez is well within his rights, as we know as players with contracts that are coming up or whatever, to sit tight. 

“He sits tight until the summer and he gets the move he wants, as long as City still want him. 

“One hundred per cent (I can understand why he would want to join City over United), 100 per cent. 

“And I can also understand why, supposedly, Manchester City would put two fingers up at Arsenal for not selling him back in the summer when they wanted and now playing hard ball. 

“So they are quite prepared to say we’ll wait until the summer even with an injured (Gabriel) Jesus.”
