It seems Manchester City would continue their high-spending nature in the transfer market of Summer 2011 too. The Premier League club is now reportedly tracking highly skilled Udinese winger Alexis Sanchez who has excelled in Serie A recently.
The Chile international has also attracted a number of European clubs including City’s Premier League rival Chelsea and Manchester United, Real Madrid, and Inter Milan. He has excellent speed and ball controlling abilities and is capable of playing as a striker.
Reports out in the media suggest that City could line up a £24 million bid for the 22 year old player who was part of Chile’s 2010 World Cup squad. A bid of this large could help Manchester City to see off the player’s other suitors. Overall, it seems Alexis Sanchez could become City’s first major signing in summer 2011.
