There have been an incredible amount of rumours regarding whether Arsenal will cash in on Alexis Sanchez by selling him to Man City in January, rather than letting him leave for free in the summer.
And now that De Bruyne and Gabriel got injured this weekend it is possible that Pep Guardiola may push the Gunners to release Alexis as soon as possible, but could Arsenal afford to lose his quality before the end of the season?
But Man City are already miles ahead in the Premier League and already has an amazing squad so why should Pep try and improve things right now? This is what the ex-Dutch international George Boateng turned pundit, who played in England for over ten years, thinks about the situation. “Can you find a player that’s better than what you’ve got? It’s really difficult but Alexis Sanchez is the one that can probably come in and give a new fresh inspiration to the squad.”
“I think Arsenal have got no choice, they have to keep him,” Boateng continued. “He’s the only one that’s causing threats for Arsenal when they play – he scores goals and he creates.
“Arsenal have done quite well to keep him until now. He’s got six months left, what’s the point of selling him now? They’d rather take the points that he can give Arsenal than to take the money.”
So do you think Arsenal will win more points with Alexis in the team? Yes he has started scoring goals again in the last month or so, but he was definitely a liability before that. Is there a possibilty he may sulk again if Wenger makes him stay yet again or will he carry on improving. It’s a tough one….
