‘Arsenal have decided on the future of Chilean striker Alexis Sanchez’ was the news that headlined Arsenal’s media wave on Tuesday but the Gunners manager has a tendency to play down his player’s situation until something goes wrong.
Arsene Wenger remains confident that the striker will stay put at the Emirates this season, with claims that the Club has decided against selling Alexis Sanchez this summer and they will stick with the decision.
Alexis Sanchez is currently on holidays after representing his country at the FIFA confederations Cup in Russia. He is expected to join his team mates at the end of this month but he reckons that he wants to play and win the Champions League, which stirred heavy speculations that he would leave Arsenal this summer.
The current situation of Alexis Sanchez brings to mind the situation of Roben Van Persie and other Arsenal players in time past. Van Persie and Samir Nasri were in the final year of the contract but Arsenal cashed in on the players when they refused to put pen to paper.
Sanchez has stalled over new contract but Wenger reckons the player will remain at the Emirates.
“The decision has been made and we will stick to that, the decision is not to sell. reveals Arsene Wenger ahead of Arsenal’se
From history, Arsene Wenger has steadfastly failed to match his words with action, which means we cannot trust him to keep Sanchez.
Manchester City are front runners for Sanchez signature but there is no telling where he’ll end up this season.
