Manchester City are weighing up a move for Manchester United forward Alexis Sanchez, according to reports.

The 31-year-old has been disappointing since moving to Old Trafford from Arsenal in January 2018, scoring just five times in 45 matches.

Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer allowed the Chilean to move on loan to Inter Milan this term, where, since the restart, he has returned to form with two goals and seven assists in 10 games.

City chief Pep Guardiola tried to sign Sanchez, who he had as a player at Barcelona, before he opted for United.

Despite his difficulties on the red side of Manchester, Chilean newspaper La Cuarta reports that City have contacted Sanchez’s representatives to find out what the forward is demanding.

Sanchez’s best days in England came in an Arsenal shirt.

As well as United looking for a price-tag of around £17 million, the South American is currently paid in the region of £400,000-a-week, meaning finding a club could be tricky.

Inter, who are – according to Gianluca Di Marzio – keen to extend the current loan a second time so that he is available for their Europa League campaign next month, also remain interested in a permanent deal.

Sanchez future does still remain unclear however as back in January Solskjaer hinted he would give the forward a second chance by saying: “Alexis will come back in the summer and prove you all wrong.”
