Alexis Sánchez has supposedly told Bayern Munich that he will only join the club if he is given wages of £420,000 per week according to the Sunday Mirror, and Manchester City is rumored to be Alexis’ favored destination.

The Chilean superstar has been involved in plenty of rumors throughout the year as his struggles with Arsene Wenger and Arsenal have been on blast during the Gunners’ disappointing season.

City and Bayern Munich have been widely known as the front-runners in the Sánchez sweepstakes, and it seems as if Alexis is deliberately pushing the Bavarian giants away in favor of a move to the Etihad.

However, Wenger would be much more willing to sell his star man to Bayern, as he doesn’t want to sell Sánchez to a Premier League rival.

Alexis is on the top of Pep Guardiola’s summer wishlist, though, and City are allegedly willing to give Alexis a weekly wage of £300,000 in order to gain his services.

According to the Sunday Mirror, City will wait to make an offer until Bayern are officially no longer interested. There is plenty of drama left in this particular transfer, so make sure to stay tuned of any possible scenarios.
