There are certain aspects of the game that we’d all probably change if we could, but one that fans consistently seem to enjoy is the summer transfer window. It creates a great deal of uncertainty for pretty much every club that chooses to participate, but beyond that, there seems to be a consistent stream of intrigue in regards to who might go where. Most of the stories have no real backbone to them, but fans won’t allow that to get in the way of proceedings.
Could it be?
Today, we’re going to look into the possibility of something happening that has been spoken about in hush tones over the course of the last few years: and that is the return of Alexis Sanchez. The Chilean sensation left the Gunners for Manchester United a few years back, and at the time, it’s safe to say that nobody really felt as if he was going to be returning anytime soon.
Now, though, it has become evident to most that he just isn’t really clicking at Old Trafford. He’s had a few bright moments here and there but they’ve been few and far between, and in a way, it’s kind of staggering to think about how far he’s fallen. Internationally speaking he still seems to be doing okay, but it’s domestically that folks believe he’s been missing that special something.
We aren’t here to suggest that a return to the Emirates would definitely mark a return to form for him, because there’s just no way of knowing that. What we are saying, though, is that the system with Arsenal just seemed to suit him in a much better manner than it has done with United. Perhaps that’s just part of the game and he hasn’t been able to embed himself into their style of play, but either way, it feels like he needs a change sooner rather than later.
At the age of 30 he certainly isn’t over the hill by any stretch of the imagination, but his next move needs to be the right one. He has all the potential in the world to keep thriving in English football, and his age isn’t going to impact that – at least, not for a few years yet. We’d be interested in seeing it happen, but a lot of the right pieces need to fall into place first.
Would fans entertain the possibility of Alexis Sanchez returning to Arsenal from Manchester United?
