According to reports from plenty of reliable sources, City will test Wenger’s resolve by including Raheem Sterling in a £20million cash offer for the Chilean magician.

Guardiola wants to capitalise on Arsenal’s dismal performance at the weekend by offering Alexis a way out of the Gunners, something that some less reliable reports are saying he’s interested in.

Earlier today a Chilean TV channel reported that Alexis had asked to leave the Chilean national training camp to conclude personal matters.
