Alexis Sanchez is reportedly open to a move across London to Chelsea.
- Arsenal will only sell Alexis to City if they cough up £80m
- Alexis meets with Guardiola, agrees personal terms
- Chilean said to be open to Chelsea move
- Betting on switch to City suspended
Apparently, if Arsenal aren’t willing to meet his supposed £400k-per-week wage demands, he’ll find a club that will.
While Chelsea have previously been linked with the Chilean, the Gunners have held firm on their stance that they won’t sell to a club within the Premier League and for Arsene Wenger to hand his best player to the team who won the title last season would just be ridiculous.
Meanwhile, betting has been suspended on Alexis’s rumoured move to Manchester City.
However, this doesn’t necessarily mean anything as this usually just demonstrates that a load of people have placed consistent bets.
Skybet has suspended betting on Alexis Sanchez joining Manchester City.

For example, on 3 July, bets were suspended on Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s moving to Everton; in June, bets were suspended on Yannick Bolasie to Arsenal; and, once upon a time, betting was suspended on Mario Balotelli to Arsenal… shortly before he signed for Liverpool.
