With every new development, it looks even more likely that Alexis Sánchez will be a Manchester City player by the end of the summer transfer window. The Arsenal superstar is currently in Chile to play a World Cup Qualifier tonight against Paraguay, and a report from Alexis’ home country suggests that the deal is done.

Carolina Fernández of AS Chile says that Alexis has already told his teammates in the national team that he will be a City player. One of his national teammates happens to be City goalkeeper Claudio Bravo, so maybe Bravo already knows that Sánchez is coming. According to La Tercera, another Chilean outlet, Chile players applauded Alexis as he informed them about his transfer to Manchester.

The latest reports in England say that Arsenal have accepted a £55 million offer from City that could rise to £60 million with add-ons, and the Gunners are now working to sign Thomas Lemar from AS Monaco before allowing Alexis to sign for City.

This is happening, isn’t it?
