Former Sky Sports pundit Richard Keys is convinced Alexis Sanchez will leave Arsenal for Manchester City this summer, despite the Sky Blues recently purchasing Monaco’s Bernado Silva.
- Alexis misunderstands question, responds about his future
- Manchester City in London to hold talks with Arsenal
- Arsenal prepare ‘record breaking’ offers for Ozil and Sanchez
Keys took to Twitter to voice his opinion on what’s set to potentially become one of the biggest transfer sagas of the summer, although many believe Manchester City have ended their interest after signing Bernardo Silva from Monaco instead.
Although Wenger has always claimed that negotiations with both Mesut Ozil and Sanchez are going to resume in the summer, it’s been widely reported that while Ozil could stay, Sanchez probably won’t.
The latter has been linked with the likes of Chelsea, Juventus, Inter Milan, Manchester City, PSG and Bayern Munich. Sanchez is believed to be keen on a move to Bayern.
However, Keys still reckons the forward is off to City.
I still believe Sanchez will join City this summer – and Bournemouth have done fantastic business is signing Begovic.

It seems unlikely that Arsene Wenger would sell Arsenal’s best player to a direct rival, not after the whole Robin van Persie to Manchester United debacle, and certainly not now given the Gunners don’t need the money.
