Manchester City midfielder Kevin de Bruyne has dropped the biggest hint yet that Alexis Sanchez will join him at Manchester City in the future.
Speaking after the club's 2-1 win against Bristol City on Tuesday night, the Belgian international said: "He's a very good player. When he comes, he will add something to the team."
"Obviously we will see what happens in this transfer period. We don't have to take care about that anyway."

De Bruyne then went on to discuss how everybody at the club is 'doing a good job':
"If a good player comes to us that is better, if he doesn't come, we do it with the team we have. We are in a good period already, over the whole season. Everybody is doing a good job." he said.
It was reported yesterday that Manchester City had tabled another bid for Alexis Sanchez.
Arsenal rejected City's advances in the summer, which included a reported £60 million offer, with the club hoping to secure his services his month.
But it appears Pep Guardiola's side will test Arsenal's resolve, once again.
According to The Guardian, the Premier League leaders have offered £20 million, with the player reportedly having already agreed terms on a contract worth around £250,000-a-week.
When SPORTbible spoke to former Arsenal left-back Ashley Cole...
Sanchez, 29, is in his final year of his Arsenal contract, and will be a free agent at the end of the season.
He's been at the Emirates for three-and-a-half-years following his move from Barcelona in 2014, but is his time at the club numbered. Sanchez to City?
