The Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are desperate for Alexis Sanchez to stay at the club this summer…
That has looked increasingly unlikely in recent weeks, with Arsenal struggling domestically and the Gunners yet to seal a new contract for the attacker – despite the fact that his current deal expires next year.
However, it seems as though Arsenal have made one last move to try and secure his future – with Bild reporting that the Gunners have made Sanchez an incredible offer worth a whopping €20 million (£17 million) a year. Though there is no suggestion that the attacker has accepted the deal yet, it appears as though Arsenal are putting all of their cards on the table.
The deal, which works out to be approximately £330,000-per-week, could make the Chilean one of the Premier League’s best-paid players, which is a distinction that he certainly deserves. Undoubtedly one of the Premier League’s brightest talents, Arsenal would certainly be putting down a marker by securing the long-term future of the Chilean.
It looks set to be a summer of change at the Emirates over the next few months, with the future of Arsene Wenger still uncertain. Reports such as that of a contract offer for Sanchez do seem to suggest that things remain under control behind the scenes, but for the Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern – all that is needed now is some clarity.
Our landlord thinks that Sanchez would have little choice but to accept the deal, provided that money is what he is after.
