Manchester United. Boss Pep Guardiola is preparing a £50m bid for the Chilean striker before the transfer window shuts on Thursday week.
The Cityzens ‘ Director of Football Txiki Begiristain has been charged with making sure Sanchez is signed and will leave no stone unturned to make the South American star feels at home the moment he arrives.
City will offer him a choice of exclusive rented accommodation in the city and on the outskirts — all paid for by the club. Sanchez — who is in the final year of his Arsenal contract and refusing to discuss a new deal will also be given advice on where and what to buy if he decides to purchase a property.
City have already spent £223million this summer and could wait a year to get Sanchez for free.
