Man City make huge bid for Sanchez
It is understood that Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini has made a huge Â£40 million offer for Chile international winger Alexis Sanchez. According to reports, his move to Barcelona has frozen and now Manchester City have trumped their offer with a huge offer.
After an impressive season in Serie A last year - scoring 12 goals in 27 games - Barcelona made their interest public and told the press they would make a move.
However, Barca's financial problems have scuppered the move; now Man City are prepared to hijack a deal with a new Â£40 million offer.
Alexis Sanchez is regarded as one of the best young players in the world, and eyefootball.com famously showcased him in this report from 2007.
It is believed that Roberto Mancini wants to use David Silva and Alexis Sanchez as his two wide men for the 2011-12 season.
