Man City to end pursuit of Udinese's Sanchez

Manchester City are likely to end their pursuit of Udinese winger Alexis Sanchez. The Eastlands club have made an offer for the Chilean star, who is also being tracked by Italian giants Inter Milan and Juventus, but it seems as though he will remain in the Serie A for now.

City coach Attilio Lombardo admitted that the 22-year old would now almost certainly stay with Udinese or another Italian club.

"It's true we did track Sanchez, but I think this player is more suited to an Italian club right now," Lombardo told Radio Crc in his homeland.

But Lombardo said it was not all doom and gloom for City who are also tracking Napoli's attacking trio.

"I hope there can be some negotiations between Napoli and Manchester City, especially as I'd see one of their three forwards would really suit City," added Lombardo.

"The trio of Edinson Cavani, Marek Hamsik and Ezequiel Lavezzi would bring success to any club.

"Napoli have very strong players, but I doubt they'd release Hamsik and Cavani at the same time.

"Manchester City are tracking many players because this club wants to do well, to win and to become the most important side in Europe. Napoli have good players, so that is why we are looking at them."
