Barcelona target Sanchez WILL consider Man City move

Manchester City are becoming increasingly confident they will win the race for Udinese star Alexis Sanchez.

The Guardian says City have made an opening £25m bid for Sánchez, their main transfer target, but have been exasperated at times by the complex nature of the negotiations, with Udinese determined to get the best possible deal and the player's various representatives demonstrating how difficult it can be sometimes to close a deal for South America's top footballers.

There is also the significant presence of Barcelona to be considered and their rival bid for the Chilean.

Sánchez would ideally move to Barcelona but that is not to say he is against the idea of moving to Manchester, and City have been bemused by reports that he refused to board a plane to discuss a possible deal with them.

On the contrary City are cautiously optimistic, particularly now Barça may be switching their focus to Arsenal's Cesc Fábregas and Manchester United's interest in the player appears to have been exaggerated.
