Reports are out claiming that Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini admits he was keen on Arsenal attacker Alexis Sanchez in the summer.
When it became clear that the Chile international was leaving Barcelona, Pellegrini considered entering the bidding for his Chilean compatriot.
However, UEFA’s Financial Fair Play laws thwarted the prospect of a deal.
He recalled yesterday: “It wasn’t easy.
“He was a very expensive player in that moment. Barcelona sold him to Arsenal but I am sure Alexis can play everywhere.”
