Transfer News: Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez and Barcelona Lionel Messi linked with a move to Man City

Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez and Barcelona Lionel Messi linked with a move to Man City

“Arsenal turned down a £60m offer in the summer from Man City but, with fewer than six months left to go on his contract, they could lose him for free in July.

“Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger hasn't ruled out a January exit for Alexis Sanchez and If the Chilean does depart for Man City in January, Wenger is ready to make Monaco's Thomas Lemar his replacement, according to L'Equipe.”

Meanwhile, Lionel Messi has been linked with a move to the Etihad Stadium for as long as I can remember and Caught Offside have reported a clause in his contract which may allow a move to happen – and on a free transfer.

According to Edward Bennett: “The Argentina international is one of the best players in the history of the game, but could be sensationally granted a move away from the Nou Camp on a free if Catalan independence means the club are removed from La Liga, according to Mundo Deportivo, as translated by the Metro.

“The Metro also list City as possible suitors for Messi, with Pep Guardiola of course working with him during his time as Barcelona manager.

“The pair struck up a great working relationship as the Spanish tactician seemed a major influence behind Messi reaching some of the finest form of his career.

“Premier League fans would dearly love to see Messi in England at some point, and it’s certainly an exciting development to learn that he could even arrive on a free.

“The 30-year-old could slot in perfectly alongside the likes of Raheem Sterling and Leroy Sane in City’s attack, though it must be said a deal obviously remains a long way away as it is yet to be seen what consequences Catalan independence could have on Barcelona’s La Liga status.”
