Alexis Sanchez will not go on strike this summer, even if Arsenal refuse to sell him to Manchester City so he can once again link up with Pep Guardiola.
That’s according to the Guardian, who claim Alexis thinks he may have to see out the final year of his contract, and will try his best to play well for the club despite all the issues over his future.
They also claim Arsene Wenger thinks the player is worth more to them in one final season, helping them get back into the Champions League, than he would be if they sold him now.
Alexis’ refusal to strike and push through a move is something Pep Guardiola didn’t count on, and with the Manchester City boss still keen on landing his former player, it could well be that Sergio Aguero stays at the club for another season.
Should Alexis leave and join City, it would certainly mean Aguero would at the very least be considering his future, given he’s not even top of the striking pecking order now, let alone if a new forward came in to the club.
