Alexis Sanchez 'very close' to joining Manchester City ahead of Chelsea

Alexis Sanchez 'very close' to joining Manchester City ahead of Chelsea

He moved to Arsenal with the hope of winning silverware.

Asked about his former team-mate by Arsenal Player, Sanchez talked about the mental attitude that keeps Messi on top.

Ozil could get a huge pay day in China, a path a number of other high profile players have chosen over the last 12-18 months.

Also, manager Arsene Wenger's future hangs in jeopardy and Sanchez would want assurances over the Frenchman's decision sooner rather than later.

"At the moment the team are having a hard spell and at this stage I am not important and no other player is important".

Ozil's contract expires next year, and a number of clubs, including Manchester United, have been linked with a potential summer move for the Germany global.

He added: "We always criticise Ozil, and I'm not his biggest fan, but I think Sanchez has been bad the last couple of months".

"I think he has one more year". Local outlets seem pretty concerned with their national team star's future, and with a promising transfer window coming, many rumours are getting started in South America.

Their home form hasn't been much better, and their only wins in the Premier League since January 22 are against Hull City and West Ham United.

Turkish club Fenerbahce have always been rumoured to hold interest, but it is said they would struggle to match Ozil's current wage of £140,000-per-week, let alone offer a similar amount to Arsenal's improved proposal.

"But that is my body language, that is the way I have always been".

"Of course, in some stages you can be annoyed when things go wrong on the pitch".

White did admit, however, that he thinks Sanchez will still leave, despite the huge offer that has been made to him by the Gunners.
