Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez is slowly accepting to stay with Gunners for another season before making a move from the club, according to reports.
Top Class Forward in Premier League
Alexis is undoubtedly the best player for Arsenal and one of the best players in entire Premier League last season and the 28-year old has expressed his frustration of not winning titles with the club as he is tipped to make a move to their league rivals Manchester City.
The winger only has one year left on his contract with Arsenal and has drawn interest from numerous clubs and was linked with the likes of Manchester City, Chelsea, Bayern Munich and Juventus since the start of summer.
He had scored an impressive 30 goals and made 19 assists for Arsenal last season. However, Arsenal have tried to let him leave for a club abroad which has not happened. Bayern Munich, who were considered firm favorites to land the Chilean international have officially dropped their interest after Sanchez’s 25m euro salary demands per year.
Move Possible This Summer?
Arsenal are demanding a staggering £80-90million for the 28-year-old for Alexis Sanchez, who is currently into his final year of his contract.
With Bayern Munich dropping their interest and signing James Rodriguez from Real Madrid, Manchester City are the only club that are interested in buying him. According to Independent, the Citizens are reluctant to meet the asking price of Arsenal and this now means Sanchez and his entourage are preparing for one final season at the Emirates.
Arsene Wenger has also confirmed that he is not keen to let both Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez leave the club despite being into their last year in their contracts. The Frenchman is ready to risk to lose them for free next season than let them leave to their rivals. He also remained hopeful that they a sign a new deal next season.
‘This summer, first of all, they will stay at the club and hopefully we can extend their contract,’ Wenger said.
‘When you sign a contract somewhere you commit to give your best until the last day of the contract.’
