Arsenal attacker Alexis Sanchez will reportedly snub advances from Real Madrid to join Manchester City at the end of the season.

The Chile international is said to have no plans of extending his Gunners stay beyond next summer, and he is a certainty to leave on a free transfer.

Arsene Wenger's side had agreed on a £60m deal for Sanchez's move to Citizens earlier in the summer but the deal fell through after the Gunners failed to sign Thomas Lemar.

Real Madrid are said to have recently joined the pursuit of the 28-year-old, but according to The Mirror, the Chilean has set his sights on moving to the Etihad next year.

Sanchez could leave for the Citizens on a cut-price deal in January, but Wenger is prepared to take a financial loss as he aims to compete for the Premier League title.

The forward opened his goalscoring tally for Arsenal this season with a stunning curler from long range against Koln on Thursday night.
