For now, runaway boy Alexis Sanchez in an Arsenal player. The Chilean forward is out of contract at the Emirates by June this year, which if he does not sign a new contract at the club will see him leave for a free transfer.
Of course, no manager wants to lose money, especially not Arsene Wenger whose record signing is French forward Alexandre Lacazette for a mere 60 million euros in today’s transfer markets of mega million deals like Neymar’s switch to PSG from Barcelona last summer.
Alexis has been linked with a host of Arsenal’s major rivals, the Manchester giants, and neighbours Chelsea.
A deal with Manchester United could see out of favor Henrikh Mkhitaryan move to the Emirates, which according to latest news reports, he does not see the move to favor his already plunging career.
