Manchester City pull out of Alexis Sanchez race to focus on Napoli stars

Manchester City will now turn their attentions to Napoli's stars after it was revealed Alexis Sanchez would prefer to stay in ItalyManchester City look set to pull out of the race for Udinese star Alexis Sanchez and focus their attentions to three of Napoli’s front line strike force.

Manchester City coach Attilio Lombardo claims they are interested in Sanchez but that the player has suggested he would prefer to remain in Italy for the time being.

“It’s true we did track Sanchez, but I think this player is more suited to an Italian club right now,”

By Italian club Lombardo may mean that of Juventus, Roma or even AC Milan but the City coach does admit big interest in three of Napoli’s stars, Ezequiel Lavezzi, Edinson Cavani and Marek Hamsik have been linked with numerous clubs over the last 12 months and he is hopeful of landing at least one of them.

“I hope there can be some negotiations between Napoli and Manchester City, especially as I’d see one of their three forwards would really suit City, the trio of Edinson Cavani, Marek Hamsik and Ezequiel Lavezzi would bring success to any club.”

Lombardi added.

“Napoli have very strong players, but I doubt they’d release Hamsik and Cavani at the same time. Manchester City are tracking many players because this club wants to do very well, to win games and to become the most important side in Europe. Napoli have good players, so that is why we are looking at them.”
