Twitter Reacts As Chelsea Make A Sudden Swoop For Alexis Sanchez

On Monday night, the news broke that Chelsea had entered the race to sign Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal while Manchester City reportedly dropped all interest in the Chilean international. 

When the January transfer window opened, Alexis Sanchez looked like a stone cold certainty to link up with Pep Guardiola at Manchester City. However, last week Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United hijacked the deal with the Arsenal forward now odds-on to make the move to Old Trafford.

However, on Monday night the news broke that Chelsea have made a sudden move for the 29-year-old and it now looks like it may take another few days before the saga is eventually wrapped up.

Reporting on Chelsea’s interest in the Arsenal star, Sky Sports cited the fact that Antonio Conte had previously tried to sign Sanchez during his time in charge at Juventus.

Antonio Conte rates the forward highly, and revealed last Friday that he tried to sign the then Udinese player when he was Juventus manager.
