- Alexis Sanchez could join Manchester City this summer
- The 31 year-old has been on the downward trend since he joined Manchester United in the winter of 2018
- Sanchez is currently on loan at Inter Milan but that will end at the end of this season
Manchester City are reportedly planning to make a surprise move for Manchester United flop Alexis Sanchez this summer.
The Chilean joined the Red Devils in January 2018, but failed to replicate his form for other clubs at Old Trafford.
When he failed to perform after over a year or more, the club decided to ship him out on loan to Italian League giants Inter Milan in the summer of 2019 with an option to buy.
With the 2019-20 season almost wrapping up, the former Barcelona and Arsenal winger has refused to step up his game, thereby making Inter ignore their move to sign him permanently.
Sport Bible quoting Chilean outlet La Cuarta, via Sports Witness, claim that the Citizens might have a need for the forward as both parties are in talks for a possible transfer of the player.
Reports reveal that Pep Guardiola has been trying to reunite with his former player since 2017 having worked together ar Barca.
The Spanish born tactician was reported to have made efforts in 2017 and in January 2018 but on both occasions, he failed.
Sanchez didn't fit into Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's plans and he sent him out on loan to Inter Milan in a bid to try and revive his career.
Yet again, injuries and other setbacks did not allow the attacker to enjoy his temporary reign in Italy after creating seven assists in the Nerazzurri's nine games.
Reports reveal that Man United are ready to allow Sanchez go for €19.2 million and City have shown interest in the Chilean despite Antonio Conte's admiration for Sanchez.
He could be enticed with the idea of linking up with Guardiola again, and not at all put off by the two Manchester sides' rivalry. Guardiola is hoping to bring him as a replacement for Leroy Sane.

The motivations behind the discontinuation of his loan deal are quite odd, as reports indicate United are unwilling to further bolster Inter’s attack as they consider the Italian giants as competition.
