Our resident Arsenal fans here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are extremely worried at the news they have just read in the Express (via Don Balon) – with the publication claiming that Real Madrid are lining up a sensational move for Alexis Sanchez, if Cristiano Ronaldo departs the Bernabeu.
Sanchez has been sensational for Arsenal since joining the club from Barcelona in 2014, and has gone on to become one of the Gunners’ most key players.
Our regular Gooners here in the Tavern are seriously starting to worry, and feel the lure of a move to one of the world’s biggest clubs in Real Madrid could be too much of a pull for the forward.
The versatile player is undoubtedly one of the most talented players currently plying their trade in the Premier League, so it would not only be a loss for Arsenal, but a loss for the Premier League in general.
The landlord here in the Tavern feels that it is simply essential that Arsene Wenger retains the services of the 26-year-old, as he is fundamental to the north London club!
Arsenal fans…… What do you make of this news? Worried? Could you imagine him leaving for Real Madrid? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
