Kevin De Bruyne Says Man City Will Do Everything it Can to Sign Alexis Sanchez

Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne insists his side will do everything they can to land Alexis Sanchez.

Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne insists his side will do everything they can to land Alexis Sanchez before the closure of the transfer window on Thursday night.

Speaking to Sky Sports, he made comments regarding the Arsenal star man's potentially imminent move to the Etihad following the Gunner's humiliating weekend defeat.

The Chilean is reportedly keen to move to City and Pep Guardiola’s side are allegedly working hard to try and get a deal done - City star De Bruyne believes Sanchez would be a great signing for the club.

The Belgian has hailed Guardiola’s transfer business so far this summer and knows the club will go all out to capture the talented Sanchez’s signature as well.

"He's a very good player," he said. "If we can come to us it'll be a good addition. City's doing business perfectly this summer and if they want him they will try everything to get him."


City will likely have to work right up until the transfer deadline on Thursday if they are to land Sanchez, with scenes seen possibly reminiscent of De Bruyne’s £55m move to City in 2015, which was also a long drawn out affair. 

The 26-year-old admitted transfer sagas can be highly frustrating, adding: “In my transfer I was waiting a long time. Every training session in Germany was open, so every time the camera is on you.

"It's a bit annoying because I was pretty sure I was signing for City but I had to wait two or three weeks and every time you go home it's like 'what's happening?' They say 'oh you can go.' Then say no you're staying. It can be very annoying."
