Arsenal may yet benefit over Alexis Sanchez leaving

Posted on January 14, 2018 by Ben Darvill

Alexis Sanchez’s name has been on the back pages for what seems like an eternity, with his future at Arsenal under huge scrutiny. The Chilean has cut an isolated figure recently, with rumours of dressing room unrest undermining Arsenal’s season, while he has been left out of Arsenal’s squad to play Bournemouth on Sunday.

It was widely assumed that the forward would join Manchester City in January, with a view to reuniting with former manager Pep Guardiola, while it would see Arsenal make some money for the Gunners to put towards a replacement, rather than losing him for nothing in the summer.

However, it has been reported that City are unwilling to pay Arsenal’s demands price-wise, with Manchester United supposedly interested in the player. If the rumours that United will offer Henrikh Mkhitaryan and some form of money in exchange for Sanchez are true, then Arsenal should take the deal with no questions asked.

Sanchez is a world-class player, but it has been clear for some time that he will leave the club. Mkhitaryan, on the other hand, is still searching for his place in the Premier League, with Jose Mourinho rarely using the player. Perhaps with the Gunners, the former-Borussia Dortmund forward can rekindle the form he showed in Germany.

If Arsenal are also offered cash, then they can reinvest this money in a new player in the current window or in the summer, while they will also have a very talented player in Mkhitaryan to replace Sanchez.

Honestly, deals like this do not come around often, and if it is true that United are willing to offer this package as part of a deal for Sanchez, then Arsenal must take it.

    I think without Sanchez we will be a better team, what winds me up with Sanchez is he thinks he’s the worlds greatest and try’s to take on everyone ,wake up call fo Sanchez, yes you’re a good player but you’re no Lionel Messi, you’re not big enough and get knocked off the ball too easily in my day all that twisty trying to be skilful would have got you kicked up in the ai, he obviously wants the big money, maybe he should go to China , it’s also a lot closer to Chile so he could get more money and maybe a bus pass.
