Real Madrid are reportedly hoping Manchester City strike a deal with Arsenal for Alexis Sanchez.
Sanchez is growing increasingly likely to leave Arsenal despite Arsene Wenger’s best efforts to calm talks of his star man’s likely exit.
Manchester City are in pole position to sign him, with Pep Guardiola desperate for a reunion with the winger, who he previously managed during his time at Barcelona.
Paris Saint-Germain are also in the mix for his signature, with Unai Emery desperate to win the Ligue 1 title after losing out to Monaco last season.
Wenger has repeatedly insisted the Chile international will not be sold but history suggests it is only a matter of time before Alexis Sanchez leaves the Emirates.
Real Madrid, meanwhile, are rivalling City for Monaco’s Kylian Mbappe.
The 19-year-old is one of world football’s brightest stars for the future after a campaign that saw him score a stunning 26 goals across all competitions.
City retain an interest in the teenager despite previously raiding Monaco for Bernardo Silva and Benjamin Mendy this summer.
And Spanish outlet Don Balon claims Real hope Sanchez joins City so they cool their interest in Mbappe.
Despite boasting the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema, Zinedine Zidane wants to bolster his strike force.
The report adds a deal for Mbappe is close but City’s interest means they still have obstacles to overcome in order to tie him down.
Should Sanchez stay at Arsenal or end up going elsewhere, Real fear they could then be dragged into a bidding war with City for Mbappe’s services.
