Alexis Sanchez to Man Utd: The real reason Arsenal ace chose Reds over Man City - Nicholas
That’s according to Arsenal hero and Sky Sports pundit Charlie Nicholas.
Arsenal talisman Sanchez is set to complete his move to Old Trafford in the coming days, with Henrikh Mkhitaryan heading in the other direction to the Gunners.
City were the favourites to land the Chile international this month but Pep Guardiola pulled out of the deal due to Arsenal’s asking price.

“They have to let him go,” Nicholas told Sky Sports.
