Would Alexis Sanchez ever return to Arsenal? 0

Posted on March 23, 2018 by Harry Kettle

While it’s been a few months now since Alexis Sanchez made the switch from North London to Manchester, the whole situation still feels a little unfinished. The Chilean clearly isn’t having the best time at Old Trafford despite an initially bright start, and this international break has allowed the media to throw this story back into the limelight once again.

It’s a seemingly never-ending saga and, seeing as we’re an Arsenal-based site, it seems only logical to consider the following as a possibility – Alexis Sanchez returning to play for the Gunners in the future.

False hope?

According to the Daily Star, Manchester United boss, Jose Mourinho could make a summer move for Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey.

The Wales midfielder will have just 12 months left on his contract this summer. The Gunners hierarchy are reportedly looking to avoid another contract wrangle resulting in losing a player for less than his actual value, like the Alexis Sanchez situation in January.

Ramsey likely to want a wage rise

The clubs reluctance to get into another Sanchez situation could lead to selling the star in the summer, rather than losing him for absolutely nothing the following summer.

The seemingly never-ending saga of Alexis Sanchez’s departure from Arsenal has another new chapter, as the Chilean superstar has revealed what Arsene Wenger said when attempting to convince him to stay at the Emirates.

According to Daily Mirror, Sanchez recently did an interview with a television station in Chile which is when the comments were made. The 29-year-old was with Arsenal for four years prior to making the switch over to Old Trafford in January.

“He was very fond of me and he didn’t want to let me go,” said Sanchez.

The January transfer window has closed and all Arsenal’s deals are done. For me, the January transfer window has been a success for the Gunners. Too many players at the club were complacent, unhappy or just good enough.

Instead of those aforementioned players, Arsenal have brought in two players that under the right conditions could be key players for the club.

Walcott, Sanchez and Giroud sold

The fact that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has decided to allow Theo Walcott, Alexis Sanchez and Olivier Giroud leave the club in January shows that the veteran Frenchman is determined to overhaul the team.

Arsenal are reportedly confident that they can still sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Borussia Dortmund as the Premier League side look to add more firepower to the team after they lost Alexis Sanchez to Manchester United.

The protracted transfer saga of Alexis Sanchez was finally resolved this week as he made the switch to Manchester United. The forward had been tipped to rejoin his former-Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola at Manchester City, but this move never came about, with the player instead signing for Manchester United instead.

Arsenal have not been known for their character and team spirit in recent years. In fact, there seems to have been tension in the Gunners dressing room in recent years. The doubts over the futures of star player Alexis Sanchez must have had an effect.

An end to the Sanchez saga a relief

As good a player as Alexis Sanchez is, his presence at the club may have harmed team spirit in recent months. It seemed obviously he wanted to leave the club and his exit seems to have lifted a cloud over the club and Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger.

Arsene Wenger has admitted that losing Alexis Sanchez will help his side ‘get on’. The forward sealed a move to Manchester United this week and it has brought to an end a very testing transfer saga for the Premier League side, with Arsenal now looking to the future following his departure.

Arsenal were able to defeat Chelsea in a 2-1 win in the semi-final of the EFL Cup. Eden Hazard struck early on to put the home side under a massive amount of pressure, but Nacho Monreal’s header was deflected a number of times before finding the back of the net.

Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil is reportedly a transfer target of Manchester United as Jose Mourinho’s side continues to test their Premier League rival’s resolve over their best players. Alexis Sanchez sealed his move earlier in the week, and his former-teammate in Ozil could follow him to Old Trafford.

The biggest saga of the January transfer window finally ended this week as Alexis Sanchez sealed his switch to Manchester United. Many had suspected he might join up with Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City instead, but this move did not ever materialise, and he will instead be wearing the red of Manchester United from this point onwards.
