City plan £70m bid

GK Jack Butland

The FC crew debate the questionable offside call that may have played a part in Arsenal's tough defeat at Stoke City.

The prospect of Alexis Sanchez, 28, leaving Arsenal this summer will increase with a reported £70m bid for the Chilean global being prepared at Manchester City.

The Chilean has missed the Gunners' opening two games of the Premier League season due to an abdominal injury.

On Monday, Matt Law of the Telegraph said City would make a £60million bid, while there was a claim from El Mercurio in Chile that Sanchez's agent, Fernando Felicevich, told them that Arsenal had rejected a £45million bid from City.

Guardiola went on to say that players such as Leroy Sane and Kevin De Bruyne are also more than capable of finding the net with regularity.


"He was out with a muscular strain and hopefully he will survive the tests first before he comes back".

"He's not played now for six weeks and it's hard to be at your best in the first game straight away", the manager explained lowering expectations on the Chilean forward's immediate impact.

The bookmakers are convinced it will turn Arsenal heads.

He added: "Leroy [Sane] scored goals last season and Kevin De Bruyne is a guy who scores 15 goals [a season]".

Wenger said he picked Nacho Monreal as the central defender in his back-three system at Stoke because Rob Holding, left out of the squad entirely, suffered a drop in confidence after the 4-3 win over Leicester. When you have the number of chances we had away from home and you don't score, you can always complain about the offence and defence.
