Alexis grabbed the headlines once again this week following comments he made in South America, where he reiterated his desire to play in the Champions League, but he stated that the ultimate decision lies with Arsenal- and the Gunners intend on keeping his services.
Manchester City have been heavily linked with the 28 year-old, who recently appeared in the Confederations Cup Final with Chile, but manager Arsene Wenger has stated that Arsenal would not like to sell to a Premier League rival. “For now I’m at Arsenal and my contract finishes in another year”.
Although Wenger said that he has had a positive response from Sanchez, rumours are suggesting that everyday the player is one step closer to the end of his time with the Gunners.
“He gets 30 of their goals – If someone doesn’t want to be at the club, you have to move on”.
Bhoys chief Brendan Rodgers is hopeful Dembele will stay put and continue his development at Celtic Park at least for another season.
The Bayern Munich CEO was quoted as saying by TZ when asked about Sanchez: “I don’t know what he said, but we are no longer involved”.
Merson, 49, is concerned his old club could fail to qualify for the Champions League next season and fall even further behind the big boys if the former Barcelona star exits the Emirates this summer.
They already added Sead Kolasinac and Alexandre Lacazette to their squad but the Frenchman wants to add more quality to his squad.
