Alexis Sanchez has begun to accept the fact that he will have to stay at Arsenal one more season. Manchester City and Bayern Munich have not managed to convince the Gunners of their need to sell, and both parties look set to remain together for another year.
However, as revealed by the Mirror, Alexis Sanchez has his sights set on 2018, when he will be able to reunite with Pep Guardiola at Manchester City.
The striker would be a marquee signing for the Citizens, but Sanchez will have to see out his final year with the crowd at the Emirates growing tired of his potential exit.
A complicated year for Alexis, who will also not play the Champions League. He will likely say goodbye to the Gunners, who are prepared to lose him for nothing when his deal expires next summer.
