Man City ‘make shock enquiry’ about Man Utd flop Alexis Sanchez

Man City have reportedly made contact with Alexis Sanchez' representatives over a potential transfer involving the Man Utd flop.

Sanchez was at the centre of a tug of war between both sides when he completed his move to United from Arsenal in 2018.

In hindsight his decision to head to Old Trafford looks to have been the wrong one, but he could still find himself sporting the blue of City, if reports from Chile are accurate.

The forward's future beyond the end of this season is still up in the air as his loan spell at Inter Milan comes to a close.

And Chilean newspaper La Cuarta state that City have already been in touch over a switch to The Etihad.

Sanchez has been performing well at the San Siro and Inter are keen to take him back on loan again next season.

United would likely rather not loan him to City, and are believed to be open to a similar deal for him to stay at Inter.

But City are trying to muscle in on negotiations by asking what Sanchez' demands are for next season.

The 31-year-old is on a £400,000-per-week deal at United, whom are desperate to get the star off their wage bill.

They value him at £17million too, meaning any potential suitors would have to stump up some significant cash, which has put Inter off a permanent deal.

Though having said that, it is likely Sanchez' next loan deal could include an obligation to buy clause at the end of the contract.

Meanwhile United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been urged to replace the club's top earner [behind Sanchez] David de Gea following his latest gaffes against Chelsea.

The Spanish goalkeeper has struggled for form this season and his position is now under scrutiny.

Back-up stopper Dean Henderson is expected to be called back from his loan at Sheffield Utd this summer to challenge de Gea for his starting berth, but Mirror columnist Stan Collymore feels United should be thinking bigger.

"I’m not convinced Dean Henderson can make the step up to be Man U No1," Collymore said.

" Manchester United needs a new type of keeper like Alisson, or Ederson, who is good with his feet, hyper-mobile and hyper-athletic.

"Go for another keeper and start afresh."
