Pep: Why Man City Failed To Sign Sanchez

Alexis Sanchez Arsenal Manchester City

City made late attempts to sign the Chilean forward, with reports claiming the Gunners had already accepted a bid of 60 million for the player.

The two clubs spent transfer deadline day locked in talks over City's desire to sign Sanchez, only for the deal to collapse because Arsenal were unable to sign their preferred replacement, Monaco winger Thomas Lemar.

"He's an Arsenal player".

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 global colleague in January. So all the best for Alexis. He's a player I knew from my time in Barcelona.

"And that's all. Sometimes the deals work, sometimes not". We will see next time round. "I am when the transfer window is open, but when the window closes, it's over for me and I'm it thinking about January or the end of the season".

But Guardiola said the club's only concern was that rival teams in other European leagues will still be able to sign players - potentially from English clubs - after the window has closed in the Premier League.

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.

"He spoke with Ferran I think.

Not one per cent chance we will swap Raz because I trust a lot in him".

The City manager also adressed La Liga president Javier Tebas's comments about their recent spending, as Guardiola revealed that he and City chief executive officer Ferran Soriano, spoke to Tebas. Ferran knows more than me.

He said, "These things are avoidable".
