Manchester City transfer news: City preparing bid for Sanchez, interest in French youngster and more, 6th January 2018
All of the day's important transfer news, updates and rumours involving Manchester City.
Manchester City readying bid for Alexis Sanchez
Alexis Sanchez's Arsenal contract is all set to expire in the summer. The London club might decide to cash in on their prized asset rather than let him leave for free in the summer. Some recent rumours suggested that City is willing to wait for the summer to get their man on a free transfer.
PSG has reportedly entered the race to sign the Chilean winger. Manchester City are well aware of this and the Cityzens are ready to splash the cash. According to the Daily Mail, Manchester City is lining up a £35 million bid for the Arsenal winger. The injury to Gabriel Jesus has also led to this decision as City are still competing in four competitions but have only one fit striker in Sergio Aguero available at hand.
Newcastle looking to sign Joe Hart
When Pep Guardiola came to Manchester City he informed Joe Hart that he is not part of his plans. The English goalkeeper was sent on loan to Torino. This season the England international was sent to West Ham where he is having a disappointing time too.
Joe Hart has lost his place to Adrian in the West Ham goal and needs to get game time to revive his slim chances to feature for England in the world cup. According to the Mirror, Newcastle has shown interest in signing him on a loan deal. For the deal to happen, both Hart and West Ham would have to agree to terminate the current loan deal.
Manchester City and Barcelona set to battle it out for 17-year-old
Hakim Guenouche has done well for France U-17 and has earned 12 caps for them so far. The left-back has been tipped well to become a top player in the future.
The French defender has not got the chance to play for his club AS Nancy in Ligue 2 yet this season. His current contract expires at the end of the season and the Frenchman can look to make a move then. According to RMC Sport, both Manchester City and Barcelona are interested in acquiring his services.
