Pep: Why Man City Failed To Sign Sanchez

Alexis Sanchez Arsenal Manchester City

Claudio Bravo has spoken for the first time out about his close friend Alexis Sanchez's move to Manchester City collapsing on deadline day.

However, Guardiola claims Arsenal wanted to make a swap deal which would have seen Raheem Sterling move to the Emirates, and the Spaniard was not in favour of that proposal.

City are understood to be ready to sign long-term target Alexis Sanchez in January for around £20million but Arsenal will hope to bring Sterling or Monaco's Thomas Lemar to the club as his replacement. So the only thing we can do if possible is to try and do a deal with cash.

Sanchez returned to a mixed reception from the Emirates Stadium crowd after coming off the bench in Saturday's 3-0 win over Bournemouth, and Bravo is hopeful City will return for his worldwide colleague in January. "He is an Arsenal player".

Bravo and Sanchez had been preparing for a World Cup qualifier against Paraguay in Santiago when Arsenal accepted a £60 million City offer for the forward.

But the physical demands of constant performances and her pursuit of the highest standards night after night take their toll. Mother Monster didn't say how long we can expect the break to be, but said: "It doesn't mean I won't be creating".

Ahead of today's Premier League clash with Liverpool, Guardiola said: "I don't know what's going to happen".

"Of course we were interested in him, but Arsenal decided not to sell him, so I wish Alexis all the best".

Alexis is out of contract at the end of the season and, therefore, available to leave on a free transfer. "Not one per cent chance we will swap Raz because I trust a lot in him". "At first I thought that he had hit him in the hip, but then I saw clearly that he got him with the face", he said before explaining how he coped with the sudden call.

"Us goalkeepers know this can happen but you never expect it".

Ferdinand, who played for Manchester United from 2002 to 2014, says all these players can still be welcomed back by their teammates, but it depends on their professionalism.
