Manchester City will not give Arsenal money for Alexis Sanchez.

The Premier League leaders have no plans to make a cut-price £20million bid for former Barcelona forward in the January transfer window.

They are ready to wreck revenge on the north London club over their decision to remove a £60million deadline-day deal for the 28-year-old winger by signing him for nothing when his contract expires next summer.

According to Sunday Mirror Sport, City are still angry at the way the Gunners handled negotiations for Sanchez in summer.

After telling them that the player was going nowhere, the Gunners changed tack at the 11th hour when it became clear that Sanchez would not be signing a new deal and had deliberately priced himself out of moves to both European giants Bayern Munich and Paris St Germain by demanding wages of £500,000-a-week.

Arsene Wenger’s attempt to get City to agree to a deal that would see the England international Raheem Sterling move to the opposite direction was rejected by Pep Guardiola.

And the Gunners then accepted a bid of £60million from City just hours before the deadline – only to pull out when Arsene Wenger’s side failed with their own £90million mission to replace the Chile international with Monaco’s winger Thomas Lemar.
