The Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are desperate for Alexis Sanchez to stay at the club this summer…
The Chilean has been so important for Arsenal over the last few years, and given the Gunners’ poor finish last season, the last thing that they need is to lose arguably their best player.
However, unfortunately for the fans in the pub, the chances of Sanchez being at Arsenal next season could be about to go way down. According to the Mirror, Bayern Munich are plotting a mega offer for Sanchez that could just too good for either party to turn down. An offer of around £40 million could come Arsenal’s way, whilst Sanchez could be offered more than £300,000-per-week to move to Germany.
For Arsenal, of course, whilst they would be hesitant to sell Sanchez, an offer of £40 million for a player that could leave on a free for next season will certainly be tempting, whilst the Chilean himself has made no secret of his desire to increase the number on his wage slip.
Indeed, the Gunners will need to think very carefully about this deal, as it comes at a very uncertain time for the club. With a rebuild almost certainly on the cards this summer, and a determination amongst the Arsenal brass to return to the top four next season, Arsene Wenger will need to ensure that everybody is on his side. Perhaps Sanchez’s desire to move, combined with the money being offered, could be enough for the club to consider a deal.
For Sanchez, the offer of increased wages alongside the chance to win trophies could prove too much to refuse.
Our landlord isn’t sure how this one is going to develop…
