Sterling's name cropped up towards the end of the window as a potential makeweight in a deal for Sanchez to join the Citizens and Guardiola revealed that Arsenal were the ones who suggested the swap deal.
And in a bid to get their talismanic forward back to his best ahead of the two remaining qualifying games, supporters say they will march on the streets of the capital Santiago and call for his return to bachelorhood.
The Chile international was heavily linked with a move to the Etihad Stadium during the off-season, having entered the final year of his contract in north London.
"They talked to me and I said, 'no chance, zero chance, not one percent chance to make a swap with Alexis and Raz".
"This time it was not possible, but hopefully we have him here in the future".
"He went from happiness to bitterness in a few hours, although it's all in the past now", the goalkeeper told reporters after City's 5-0 win over Liverpool on Saturday. It is a move which would have its benefits for many and with less business now happening in January, could it be time to assess the current format?
"It is not a way to work and it is uncomfortable".
The amount of money is completely disconnected to reality and the truth. Are they tapped up in the afternoon of the game by people who want to get them out?
It was reported Arsenal had offered £92million for the France international despite Wenger's often frugal approach to transfers.
But Wenger said: "I have no doubt about Alexis' mind and mentality, that people question". I believe that we have to bring some decency. The attacking player arrived from Liverpool in July 2014 for £56 million, and in 97 matches with the club, he has tallied 23 goals and 31 assists.
"I am so happy with the decision the Premier League have taken".
"Yes, we didn't play well enough".
