Alexis Sánchez transfer: Manchester City close to walking away in chase

Manchester City are close to accepting their attempt to sign Alexis Sánchez is dead because of what they regard as the astronomical money wanted by the Arsenal forward and his agent.

City may have been prepared to increase their £20m valuation of Sánchez but it is understood they have balked at the signing-on fee wanted by a player who is out of contract in the summer and the payment expected by Fernando Felicevich, his representative.
This clears the way for Manchester United to buy the 29-year-old should Ed Woodward, the executive vice-chairman, countenance the demands, which may include having to pay close to Arsenal’s £35m valuation.

City have been in discussions with Sánchez and Felicevich since before last summer. Yet it is understood each upped their demands late last week.

This has left the Premier League leader accepting that the forward will not join unless he is performs a U-turn and decides the attraction of playing under Pep Guardiola for the champions-elect means he would prefer a move to City.
