£400,000-a-week offer, Medicals BOOKED, Alexis Sanchez rejects mouth-watering deal to join Man City

Alexis Sanchez rejected the chance to earn £400,000-a-week after tax and team up with former Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini at Hebei China Fortune who had reportedly prepared for his medicals in order to nail a move to City, an exclusive report according to The Sun on Sunday reported the news.

It is reported that the Chile international was sounded out about a lucrative move to the wealthy Chinese Super League, but he made it clear that his first choice is reunite with his former boss Pep Guardiola at Man City.

Alexis would need to earn £800,000-a-week in England to take home what he could have in China, but the Chilean's sporting ambition means he is determined to join Premier League leaders City.

FootballWeeks sources have revealed City came close to landing Alexis in the summer, only for an agreed move to collapse on deadline day when the Gunners failed to make a move for his identified replacement, Thomas Lemar from Monaco.

Sanchez is out of contract in the summer, meaning Arsenal have one more chance to cash in on the former Barcelona star if City make a move in January, or else risk losing for him free on a free transfer in the summer.

Guardiola was coy when asked about a January swoop for Alexis in his pre-Tottenham press conference, saying: “On the pitch, I don’t know. The January transfer window is in the winter.

“I don’t know, believe me, I don’t know what we’re going to do.”

It seems more a question of when, rather than if, Alexis Sanchez rocks up at the Etihad Stadium, with Guardiola still a big fan of the versatile attacker.
