Manchester City Set To Turn To Barcelona Ace

Alexis Sanchez Barcelona forward

Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has made Barcelona winger Alexis Sanchez his number one target this summer, according to the Daily Mirror.

Sanchez rejected City when he moved to the Spanish league leaders in 2011 for £25million from Udinese but the big spending Manchester club are set to pounce once again for the Chilean star.

The 24 year old is just once of a number of players Mancini hopes to bring to the Etihad stadium this summer after failing to emulate recent success in East Manchester.

Sporting Director Txiki Begiristain, the man who oversaw Sanchez’s move to Barcelona, is set to play a key role in the recruitment of new City stars this summer.

Despite recent rumours linking him with a move away from the club, City midfielder Yaya Toure is set to sign a new contract at the club emphasising the ambition to challenge for the title again next season.
