Real Madrid turned down the chance to sign Alexis Sanchez

Real Madrid reject Alexis

Real Madrid turned down the chance to sign Alexis Sanchez, according to Spanish site OK Diario.

Sanchez’s agent Fernando Felicevic got in touch with Los Galacticos to see if they would be interested in offering his client an escape route from Arsenal. They declined to do so for two reasons.

Reasons for rejection

The first was that they preferred their BBC front three. Benzema, Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo are all first-choice forwards with the Champions league holders. An opening would only appear if one left.

Madrid do not want to sell one of the star trio and most likely won’t this summer.

The second reason is that they believe Alexis is a difficult character and don’t want that kind of drama at the club. A bit rich considering they have Ronaldo in their ranks. But one (main) diva is enough for one club.

It all a touch irrelevant at this stage as Arsene Wenger has dismissed the possibility of Alexis leaving.
