Once again, Arsenal are seemingly at odds with one of their best players about his future at the club. Alexis Sanchez’s dropping for the weekend loss away at Liverpool has obviously resulted in widespread reports in regards to his standing with Arsene Wenger in north London, as his contract winds down.
Whether or not you agree with his supposed methods of venting his frustration, it’s clear the Chilean and the current nature of life at the Emirates isn’t the best mix as things stand. While perhaps this situation is slightly more venomous than that of Robin van Persie’s back in 2012, it does bear some striking similarities.
Both forwards were seemingly disillusioned with life at the club as they entered the final stages of their deals, with the Dutchman obviously joining rivals Manchester United, with whom he won a league title in his first year.
With that in mind, the Daily Mail have claimed that even if Sanchez is to leave Arsenal, the club will do all they can to avoid him moving to another Premier League side, having been embarrassed back in 2012/13.
However, that hasn’t stopped Manchester United fans on Twitter cheekily suggesting their club should move for the former Barcelona ace in the summer window.
What about #MUFC winning the premier league next season with Alexis Sanchez as their main striker?

Griezmann, Varane, Kroos & Alexis Sanchez… What a trasfer window that would be. #MUFC

I’d honestly rather have Alexis Sanchez at Manchester United than Griezmann. #MUFC
