Manchester City Arsenal Swap Alexis Sanchez For Raheem Sterling

London, England – Manchester City and Arsenal are considering swapping Alexis Sanchez for Raheem Sterling. Thursday’s transfer deadline is among us and City wants to make one last addition. Arsenal, Arsene Wenger that is, is looking for something in return.

The Chile international hit 24 Premier League goals for Arsenal last season. However, he has yet to come to terms for a new contract and his current contract ends next summer.

For Pep Guardiola, the buyout will bring in addition to the arsenal that City has been lacking. Sergio Aguero’s goals have been the only reliability in that position.

Wenger, in return for the 28-year-old, would like the 22-year-old England international Sterling.

BBC Sports reports that Sterling would be interested in a move back to London.

Last season, Sterling contributed 10 goals and 21 assists in all competitions last year for City.

Nevertheless, La Liga super team Real Madrid have shown interest in Sanchez. However, this would come with a departure from Gareth Bale of the team. Rumors indicate several Real Madrid players wouldn’t be against a departure from the Blancos side. Many fans took it to whistle Bale after Zinedine Zidane subbed him against Valencia.
