The Sky pundit Richard Keys has admitted that he expects Alexis Sanchez to join Manchester City from Arsenal this summer, disregarding the claims of Arsene Wenger.
The French boss has remained adamant on a number of occasions that the Chilean forward will not be leaving the club, and that he will most certainly not be joining a Premier League rival.
Bookmakers have also somewhat disregarded Wenger’s comments also, with Man City having been the favourites to sign him from the Emirates Club throughout the summer.
Alexis is claimed to be keen on a reunion with Pep Guardiola at the Etihad, and has so far been unable to feature in North-London, due to a supposed injury, not that any injury would ever keep him from playing for Chile…
Richard Keys remains of the belief that he will still get his desired move to the Sky Blues, and will believe that until the window closes to prove otherwise.
He replied to a tweet which asked if he still expected Alexis to join Man City this window, to which Keys replied: ‘until the windows slams shut – yes’
It wouldn’t be the first time that AW has reiterated his stance on ruling a player’s exit out, only for the move to go through in the window regardless.
His latest comment however insisted that the financial implications of the deal were more important to the board then himself, which sounds as if the board are considering his sale.
Do we still believe Sanchez is staying? Could we really allow him to join City? Are we just waiting for the right price?
