Many believed that Sanchez would be on his way to Liverpool this summer as part of the deal that will likely see Luis Suarez head in the opposite direction, where as Debuchy became the club’s surprise number one target to take over from Bacary Sagna after dropping out of the race to land Serge Aurier.
