Raheem Sterling is being linked with a move to Arsenal, a deal which involves the transfer of Chilean Alexis Sanchez to the Manchester side.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has however insisted that Sanchez is not for sale at any price, though his future remains in the dark
As the transfer windows approaches its climax, European clubs are scrambling to acquire the signatures of players they need, with the season already three games in.
Perhaps the most talked about person in London today in Alexis Sanchez.
His Arsenal future remains uncertain even though manager Arsene Wenger has insisted that the Chilean top scorer will stay at the club.
Sanchez has been linked with a move to a number of European giants, with Germans Bayern Munich and English rivals Manchester City topping the list of potential buyers.
Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola seems to have sensed that time is running out and is now throwing his last card, offering Raheem sterling to Arsenal to lure Sanchez to Manchester.
Sanchez has only played one game for Arsenal in the Premier League this season, a match which ended with a 4-0 defeat at the hands of Liverpool.
Sterling moved to Manchester City from Liverpool in 2015 on a 49 million euro deal but has not been a consistent player for the citizens.
It is reported that Pep Guardiola authorized Sterling’s move from Liverpool before he took over and had him in his plans but the addition of Leroy Sane, Bernardo Silva and Gabriel Jesus has cast doubt on the winger’s future.
As the Russia 2018 World Cup draws nearer, Sterling, just like other English players will be looking for first team football, in order to increase his chances to be called up into Gareth Southgate’s squad.
Sterling, 22, has started the season well, netting a last minute winner against Bournemouth and also scoring in the 1-1 draw with Everton.
With only 72 hours left to the close of the window, it is still unclear if Sterling will be a Manchester City player in the coming days.
