Arsenal star player Alexis Sanchez has little over 12 months in his contract with the North London club and rumours about his future with Gunners are coming in thick and fast on daily basis.
The Chilean superstar is believed to have an offer from Arsenal on the table, but his reluctance to commit after reportedly failing to accept the proposed financial terms has left the door open to a possible departure at the end of the season.
Arsene Wenger only add fuel to fire by taking a firm stance by saying that he would not be disrupting the club’s financial balance by offering any player – Sanchez included – more than possible.
“We will do as always we have to consider our financial potential to sustain the wages for the whole squad”, Wenger said.
Another big reason for Sanchez’s reluctance to commit to a new deal is definitely the uncertainty over Arsenal’s place in Europe next season, which could end up being a huge problem not only for Sanchez, but for several other first-team players as well.
Arsenal are therefore preparing for life without Alexis Sanchez in case the influential striker ends up leaving the Emirates, but it is being reported that Arsenal will be determined to push the Chilean towards Paris Saint-Germain, rather than allowing him to remain in the Premier League.
Sanchez has recently revealed he would like to remain in London next season as well and to play for a ‘winning team’, but the Gunners will not allow their key man to go over to a league rival.
Chelsea and Manchester City have all been linked with Sanchez this season, but Arsenal do not want to risk angering their supporters who are still not over the sale of Robin van Persie to Manchester United, where he won the title in his first season at Old Trafford.
Arsenal have seen an excessive number of first-team players leave for Premier League rivals and the club looks determined to put an end to such practice.
On the other side, PSG have both the financial power and desire to bring Sanchez which makes them a viable solution for any potential problem around the 28-year-old Chilean who would not be allowed to leave for any less than £50 million.
