    City will pay him whatever he wants regardless of whether he signs now or in the summer. The question is, will they make a bid that Arsenal will accept?

    I think so. It has an air of inevitably about it.

    Lose him now for maybe £30m, or the summer for nothing?

    It's hard to think of a better player, who is eligible to play in the Champions League, who could be available in January.

    But he can turn down any move Arsenal want him to make if it doesnt suit him

    That’s the key
    People think arsenal will sell him to get the £££

    But the player now has so much more power

    I think that it will be a one or two horse race and Arsenal will be forced to take whatever they can get.

    Yeah. But like Milo said City will probably offer him a similar deal to what they can offer in the summer. What would be the motivation for Sanchez to stay at Arsenal until the summer?

    Especially when it is clear that he has fallen out with the other players

    Why can't they offer that now?

    The transfer market keeps changing with managers, sporting directors, big sales, disappointing results and more. If City really want him and could sign him this window, but don't get it done they risk someone like PSG, Real, Barca or Bayern coming in with a better or preferable offer in the summer.

    It suits both parties too. Arsenal get some money towards a replacement and get rid of a disruptive player, City get a very good player who is eligible for Europe.

    It’s up to City

    They don’t need him and are walking the league

    He is basically a stocking filler for them and to get him on a free wound be better than paying say £20m now surely

    Would he be cup tied in the CL? Since arsenal were in the Ropey ... I know this has been discussed.

    If he is available to play i would not see why they would not go all in for him. Best chance they have of winning it in my opinion. Barca and Real look spent currently, Bayern hardly look the same force, PSG could be edged out.

    He's not cup tied, Jesus looks to be out for a couple of months too

    I'd pay the money, 20mil is peanuts to them and even in the scope of ffp (like it matters) they could flog any of their current squad for over 20mil in today's market to balance the books.

    If he wants to go there, I could see them bidding lower knowing that it is peanuts now or nothing in the summer.

    It probably comes down to how bad things have got behind the scenes and whether they have a replacement lined up. You could see the sense in selling him now and bringing in Draxler.

    Would he want to go to a club that's just sold their good players?
