I think you guys have convinced me. Sanchez will have a couple more years at his absolute peak and then will be on the downside of his career in the last 2 or 3 years of this latest contract he will sign. He has played so much and refuses to get off the pitch. As he ages that will be a detriment to him. If City are going to offer us £60m + for him I don’t see how we don’t take it, it makes far too much sense business wise. It’s just imperative that we take that money and invest it into the next big thing. Mbappe or Lemar, or both.
I could see Sanchez propelling City to win the title next season ala RVP with united. Our only other option is to buy a couple more very good players this window and then make a run at the title. If we do that Sanchez would probably stay. That’s obviously a big gamble but probably the only way we get him to stay.
