Man City 'meet £30m demand' for Alexis Sanchez

Man City reportedly make a last-minute attempt to thwart Barca's chances of signing Alexis Sanchez.

Man City have reportedly agreed to Udinese's £30 million asking price for Alexis Sanchez.

The 22-year-old left training with the Chilean national side yesterday and headed to Europe for the final stage of transfer talks.

Man City are engaged in a three-way tussle with Man Utd and Barcelona for the player. United are considered the outsiders, having failed to budge from their £27 million offer, while Barca were widely expected to clinch the deal this week.

According to The Mirror, City made the £30 million offer yesterday in a last-minute bid to thwart Barca's chances. Sanchez is apparently unconvinced that Eastlands would be his best move but is "prepared to meet them in the next 24 hours".

Meanwhile, a spokesman for Udinese said: "Barcelona just have to iron out a few details but it's 80 per cent done."
