Manuel Pelligrini has revealed he wants Alexis Sanchez to join him in China.
Pelligrini who joined Chinese Super League side Hebei China Fortune last summer after leaving his post at Manchester City has revealed that he would love Sanchez to join him in China.
Recently it was claimed Sanchez has an offer worth over £400,000 from an unnamed Chinese club and Pelligrini comments all but confirm that indeed a Chinese club is looking to sign the forward.
“If Alexis wants to come, we have a club for him right now,” Pellegrini said to The Sun [via The Daily Star] .
“He can come to join us in China immediately.”
Pelligrini has been a huge fan of Sanchez and it is no surprise that he would jump at the chance to sign the Chilean if he has the opportunity.
Sanchez is currently in talks with Arsenal to renew his contract which expires in 2018 but he is yet to reach an agreement with the club. The forward has established himself as one of the best players in the Premier League and I do not think the player would want to move to China at this point of his career.
Reports claim the huge offer he has from China has turned his head and he is now holding out for a new deal which will make him one of the highest paid players in the Premier League.
Arsenal are hoping to convince the player to sign a deal worth less than what he has demanded and talks with the player are expected to continue in the future with the hope of reaching an agreement before the end of the season.
