What is the point of keeping Sanchez?

Wenger is up to his usual tricks pretending Sanchez will stay, he knows he is not staying, just like Fabregas.
Sanchez is now on strike or the pretend flue, the bloke hasnt even rejoined training yet, and clearly doesnt want to.
So Sanchez will go and Wenger will pretend he fought to keep him.
Identical to the Fabregas sham



- until Wenger moves on, they'll always be the also-rans in the major competitions. A club in elite purgatory. Always good enough to make it to the big race, never fast or smart enough to push over the finish line in first place. That's all about the manager. Until he changes, Arsenal fans will continue to celebrate glorious failure.

No world class player wants to stay or play for a fifth place team. Sanchez knows for a fact the ambition of the club the day they rewarded a new contract to Wenger.

I agree Sandy. A 5th place team took out a full page ad in the Evening Standard today to advertise tickets for the Mickey Mouse Cup at the Emirates, reduced to behaving like West Ham or Totts.

As I posted Wenger knows Sanchez is going but is playing games to save his face, Ozil will follow next year for a big pay day elsewhere

Wenger is that delusional he probably feels he is a big enough pull to keep Alexis here this summer and get him signed up before Christmas.

We'd be better off selling Alexis now.

Yes, it will be a waste of 40 million that could be spent on getting a replacement, the bloke is not going to pull his weight

Just negotiation ploy to get the highest selling price.

Wenger said before: "I will not keep a player who refuses to play for Arsenal".

Alexis will be sold to Abu Dhabi City once a replacement like Lemar is signed.

No of course not, but I'd still rather not have him hanging around like a moody teenage girl thinking he's bigger than the club.

Guys, Alexis will be the biggest star in City, there is no established player better than him in city now. He's now in next bracket to Messi, Neymar, Ronaldo, Suarez et al..
But I think Wenger has a plan about him, Wenger wants to keep him till December n by that time if Arsenal falls behind in title race then will let him go in January taking 15-20m whatever he can get instead of 45-50m now. In the meantime Alexis isn't going to play a single Europa game to preserve his value for participating in knockout stage of CL.
This is clearly taking chance with him just in case Arsenal sits top of the league in December then they will throw away the transfer money entirely.
Now Sanchez understands Wenger's plan so he isn't going to showup till end of august in any game to force him to sell to city or whichever team he wants to go. Basically it's the trade off between keeping him for 3 to 4 months extra with 30-35m. Either way, Wenger is fuc.ked...

lol, better than all of them. Aguero doesn't even get into his NT where as Sanchez is now the 4th biggest player of the continent.

There is no point too keeping Alexis!


If he doesn't want to be a gooner then that's his choice!
We can't force him to love our club.

We just have to show him we appreciate him as fans.

If I was Wenger I would try my hardest too keep Alexis, but Arsenal fans know what's happening. Behind closed doors. I want people to just be truthful with us.

It's Wengers fault.


Wenger needs a swift 12 gauge blast too the back of the head.



If you want to play with us we will happily come along!
But ignore the truth then u will b punished mr wenger.

But

Can't be just my opinion, Arsenal offered him 300k a week, city is offering him 400k a week that's the highest wage earner for both the team.

Agreed, I don't bother too but he has proven track record winning multiple major trophies for this previous club n country so no one can take things away from him. The guy is a winner...
