Metro have Arsenal fans standing up and looking outraged here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they seem to think that Barcelona are after one of their players.
Not just any player, oh no; the Catalan giants reportedly want to re-sign Alexis Sanchez who of course only joined the North London side last summer after his time at Barcelona came to an end.
As one of our punters notes over a pint, that would be a disaster for the Gunners and Barcelona’s new transfer chief Ariedo Braida recently spoke to El Mercurio and after noting: “I’d like Sanchez at any club I’m at,” there are a few unsettled faces.
However as our landlord points out, Barca are facing a year-long transfer ban and by that time we would hope the club have proven to Sanchez that they can match his ambition, not to mention tied him down to a better deal to keep him at the Emirates Stadium long-term.
Sanchez was also unhappy at Barcelona prior to his Gunners switch and his relationship with Lionel Messi has certainly not improved so we think that Arsenal can breathe a sigh of relief for now.
Arsenal fans. Would Sanchez ever consider a move back to Barcelona? Could you cope without him? Let us know your thoughts below.
