Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern have been sinking celebratory shots after their fantastic result over Manchester United earlier today, which saw the Gunners rise to just two-points behind league leaders Manchester City.
They’re discussing a story they read on the tube on the way back from the game, in which The Sunday Mirror state Alexis Sanchez will be offered a new deal in North London.
Alexis huge deal would see him signed down for the next five years, which would secure the Chilean until he reached his 30’s.
The South American starlet has been in explosive form in the past week, striking six goals in three games to bounce-back from a slow start to the season; where the 26-year-old was clearly exhausted after his summer heroics at the Copa America.
Alexis has been a sensational star for the Gunners since arriving from Barcelona in a £30m deal last summer, helping Arsenal retain their FA Cup, and our regulars believe he truly deserves his pay-rise; which will see him earn a whopping £130k-a-week.
Arsenal fans, is this a good move by your club? Let us know in the comments below!
