Alexis Sanchez leaving?
There’s been a lot of noise around Alexis Sanchez of late; his contract situation is the elephant in the Arsenal room this season.
The Chilean has been Arsenal’s best player this season, and their top 4 hopes rest largely on his shoulders.
But his contract situation is becoming a big distraction, and Gooners are starting to fret that they could lose their best player unless the club’s hierarchy meets his wage demands.
Like Mesut Ozil, Sanchez’s current deal runs out at the end of next season, but Arsenal fans are much more worried about their Chilean start than their German one.
Given his recent body language, Gooners are now starting to fret that he feels he’s outgrown the club and will agitate for a summer move..
Wants to join Chelsea
And according to Matt Law of the Telegraph, Sanchez has more or less made his mind up about leaving the Emirates, and has even made one club his top choice.
Some were speculating on Sunday that he could be off to Man City after his embrace with Pep Guardiola, but the Telegraph claim that Chelsea is in fact his preferred destination.
But it won’t be an easy exit for Sanchez – Arsenal will try to make him stay into his final year, and would rather let him leave somewhere else for free in summer 2018.
