Alexis Sanchez to get HUGE pay hike and stay at Arsenal?

I do not know if Ray Parlour is one of the former Arsenal stars who still has close links with Arsene Wenger and the club, as the likes of Robert Pires and Thierry Henry seem to, but our former midfield star does seem to think that the Gunners do still have a chance of keeping Alexis Sanchez at the club, despite the vast majority of recent Arsenal transfer rumours suggesting that it is only a matter of time before the Chile international secures a transfer away from Arsenal this summer.

Parlour has hinted in an Evening Standard report that a decent enough pay increase could keep Alexis in north London and whatever the weekly wage demanded by the striker and his agent, the ex Gunner thinks we should pay it, even if it means smashing the club’s wage structure and giving Sanchez around double the amount he is on right now.

He said, “They’ve come fifth in the league this year, which we know is not good enough for Arsenal’s standards. They won a trophy in the FA Cup. The manager has been sorted out, that’s on the backburner, now the [future of the] players is the most important [issue].

“If you want to compete with the likes of [Manchester] City, Chelsea, [Manchester] United, whoever it’s going to be next year, then you’ve got to keep your best players.

“I would say to Sanchez… ‘How much do you want?’ If his agent says ‘we want £300,000-a-week’ you have to pay it I’m afraid.”

With Metro reporting on Saturday that our EPL rivals Man City are willing to offer the 28-year old almost that much to sign, making him their best paid player, you feel that Arsenal and Wenger need to be just as forthcoming, but will the Frenchman and the financially careful Arsenal board see it that way?

Could we still keep Alexis Sanchez by giving him a huge pay rise or is the writing already on the wall?

    The only player who deserve a pay rise “significant one” is Sanchez, really an irreplaceable player, Plz pay him what he wants … But I am afraid he already made his mind somewhere else …
    Another two yrs of Wenger is really hard …

      After going from second to fifth none of them deserve a pay rise but we have to keep our best player and Sanchez was in the top five players in the PL last year (only my opinion). That’s why I get so worked up with Ozil wanting to double his pay. He doesn’t deserve anymore than Giroud or Walcott if you go by last season.

      1. Efe iteire

        We started winning trophies as soon as Oz0il came to Arsenal. You will know he worth when he’s left the club. Aside from ozil, can you point any creative mid field player in Arsenal

        1. bran99

          it’s true, we won nothing with Chamack and the likes of Van Persie (no matter how lethal he was – though injuries pulled him back), but the arrival of Ozil boosted everyone’s morale, we started winning something, then Sanchez then Cech.

          1. Dee23

            Cazorla is creative but we still didn’t win anything until Ozil arrived at the club which was quite a while after Cazorla and Giroud joined.

      2. LL_cool_gunner

        Is it the players fault that we started the season short at the, it literally took winger three months to sign mustafy, we lost to liverpool..

    As Our Great Leader Sir Arsene said that the best way to create an identity with the way we play football, to get players integrated into our culture, with our beliefs, our values that we felt it would be an interesting experiment to see players grow together with these qualities, and with a love for the club, It was an idealistic vision of the world of football. Supporting the club, the players, and the manager is the decent fans should be all about. Arsenal fans are brainwashed to be negative by biased medias and many low IQ pundits whose showering the constant negativity surrounding our beloved classy team. You’re about as useful as Anne Frank’s drum kit. I’m not saying your stupid, I’m just saying you have little luck when it comes to thinking. There’s no them vs us you simpleton. You’re an arsenal fan (allegedly) and so am I. Shove your classification up your @rse pal or don’t address me. Not having you t!ts to talk to would be an improvement you pleb. Nice of you to think of yourselves as the entire blog though you melon, your ego’s might be big but sadly your intelligence doesn’t match. It’s just unfortunate we are not in the hands of an ambitious owner even though we have a classy well know respected manager globally who will do anything to win. I don’t think you are an idiot. But then what’s MY opinion against thousands of others? Must be hard for you huh but that’s no excuse really for your total lack of intelligence in general aspects of the club. You all disgruntled fans and useless chicken to do anything moaners always seem to simply make things up and attribute them to other people, have a look at yourself mate cos that’s the behavior of a complete tw@ts. At least know the views of who you’re speaking to, that one should be fairly obvious even to a complete melt. We’re all true fans proud to be a Gooner and always will be. No need to backtrack? I’m not in the slightest, you’re making up various assertions though. No way I can backtrack on something I’ve never said, but good effort there, pal. Got to love the naysayers daily attempts to undercut everything and anything associated to Arsenal so Wenger and Co can take a hammering for it. I’ll say what I have said before – those who so clearly get upset by what a Frenchman they have never met does (and who truly has no real impact on your life), must be very weak individuals. Really don’t get this whole “if you aren’t as upset by football as I am than you’re not as much of a fan” narrative. No ambition as you the ignorant plastic fan said eh? I think our football is still pretty good to watch and has the potential to be vintage. How did you get here? Did someone leave your cage open? I’d sl@p you but that will be animal abuse. Telling true fans to stop living in the past, all the while bringing the past to slate Wenger, bunch of hypocrites, very slow and with some caution people are seeing improvement and potential, we are getting better whether you like it or not. We are looking like clicking and its exciting for our fans who haven’t had this feeling for a while, i just struggle to understand why most you dont want us to do well individually and collectively, most of you are the most baffling people on here. You should be proud of Arsene as true fans. Wenger gets discussed quite literally EVERY day, yet you can’t manage to broaden the conversation to encompass all elements of Arsenal fc. That speaks volumes on you, not about anyone able to engage on a wider topic. You’re utterly fixated with Wenger and any discourse that doesn’t explicitly reference Wenger or hold him wholly responsible is met with a backlash of nonsense as seen above. Your input is pathetic. How about you stick to posters who speak your lingo, let others who discuss Arsenal deeper to have that conversation without your anemic commentary. As our Great Leader Sir Arsene said that the best way to create an identity with the way we play football, to get players integrated into our culture, with our beliefs, our values that we felt it would be an interesting experiment to see players grow together with these qualities, and with a love for the club, it was an idealistic vision of the world of football. If there had been time, we the true fansbelieved in him and confident he would have been as keen on our view of him as a mixture of French flair and passion and German calm and efficiency. It is like they don’t want anyone to enjoy the game since they can’t, very childish really. A reminder of the 2005/6 season, in which Wenger was criticized to the hilt for fielding an inexperienced back four in Arsenal’s Champions League campaign. They swept aside Real Madrid, Juventus and Villarreal, didn’t concede a single goal in the knock-out stages and lost only to Barcelona in the final. Arsene is a genius. There is an unwillingness – amongst all football fans, but particularly, it appears, among Arsenal fans – to acknowledge that your manager might just know a little bit more about your team than you. As bitter a pill as it may be to swallow, there is a reason Arsene Wenger is paid money to make these decisions. Of course, managers don’t always get it right, but in a profit-making, money-driven industry, the Premier League makes no allowances for consistently poor decision making. Wenger is a shrewd, unfaltering decision-maker. He has built a football club, not a football team, and in doing so he has given Arsenal a philosophy and an identity. This is a man who, prior to managing Arsenal, earned his living by analysing football teams and the type of tactics they employ. He is a true master of the game – wise, thoughtful, ruthless. There aren’t many of those left anymore. Arsenal fans, like all football fans, will always enjoy the peaks and suffer the troughs of their team’s fortunes. That is the nature of football. That is the beauty of football. Calling for Arsene’s head is nothing new, but the supporters need to grasp something that everyone associated with the club has understood for the past 21 years, Arsene Wenger is a genius, and he’s the only man capable of returning the Gunners to their former glory.

      before paying sanchez pay this guy whatever wants, then atleast others will be spared from shifting through so much of garbage in each and every comment section in this site

    1. JembutArsene

      Embarrassing statement, Football doesn’t work like that whatsoever. Your father should have just gone to sleep that night. Who gives a f*** what others do. Everyone held United up as the heroes of last summer with their business and it meant f*** all for their season. We have already upgraded the left side and are gunning for targets as much as other clubs. Let a few international matches play out then the business will commence, as long as Sir Arsene gets the players he wants/needs i don’t care at what point in the summer they arrive. after the controversy surrounding his new contract I don’t think there’s any way we can have a quiet, frustrating summer.

      1. WengerBooi

        Where will we find a replacement for him? and if we do.. can they make an impact in the PL from the get go?

        1. JembutArsene

          It does get pretty boring reading the same overexcitement about other clubs transfers. Matter of perspective and all that given I was talking to some Liverpool fans who are shitting themselves because City have bought, we have bought, United are buying. I get the apprehension and skepticism, but players are playing international matches this second so when thats done lets see what happens. On the whole City have made a couple of moves by employing the “chuck cash” approach, the rest are links and hot rumour. No different to ourselves with Mbappe, Lacazette, Mahrez. I expect us to sign a name in the next two weeks, trust Arsene to get the right players like when he brought us Ozil and Sanchez before. Maybe Iwobi could fill Sanchez boot if he is really gone, or buy one proven quality player such as James Rodriguez, you should be excited for the unexpected surprise from our classy master of tactician and great manager.

            you’ve got a point.. it’s like holding on to that gorgeous girlfriend at all cost and knowing she doesn’t want to be with you anymore.. i hear you

            1. JembutArsene

              That’s why you should impregnate that beautiful girl, so she had no choice to accept her fate to be with you.

              Now you go and impregnate Sanchez asap.

  3. Nebsy

    Wouldn’t be surprised if he goes to Man city. But for whatever performance Wenger pulls on the fans in an attempt of justifying why he f***ked us up yet again (should that happen ofc) the least he should get is a BAFTA nomination. And, that, my friends, is another trophy!

    1. ArseOverTit

      And the award for best impersonator of a master tactician and football scholar goes to…

      Arse n Wenger

    2. kabiru

      Just read on the telegraph.uk that he was given ultimatum for him to sign that he wont be sold to epl team precisely city.

  4. jim wall

    Sell ozil..Walcott..free up money to pay Sanchez wages also make him captain , we dont need to many players only dm ..cazola type player….wc striker new team next year ………….. cheq
    Kos. Holding. Mustafi
    Bellerin xakai..new cazorla..Chamberlain..new left back we have signed
    Sanchez. New striker

  5. Alfred George

    Pay him what he wants and please please keep him, cos if he leaves to another club is team mates and fans will be weak. We the fans says pay him350 which Bayern wanted to pay him, he will stay course he knows how to play, and fight for goal.

  6. SoOpa AeoN

    KEEP SANCHEZ!…….i repeat Keep sanchez

    .
    A bird in hand is worth more than thousands in the bush….

  7. John Ibrahim

    Chelsea new 100m signing Lukaku is indeed world.class

    His performance against Estonia is outstanding

    We should have signed him

  8. bran99

    keep him, give him the money, buy class players and win trophies (that will directly give you more money in return)

    like Soopa said “A bird in hand is worth more than thousands in the bush”, it’s not easy to find someone who can imitate Sanchez on the go, and they’ll never be like him. build the team around him and we’ll have that mentally built winning team

  9. Mkaya

    make him retire at arsenal…its important for the image of the club. we cant just be a stepping stone.

  10. Arsenal_Girl

    He is worth the £300,000 per week
    Unlike Rooney’s £250,000 per week
    LOL I miss Moyes at United

    Alexis has guaranteed playtime with arsenal. If he wants to go, he should be allowed. Let him go to wherever he wants and compete for playtime. He wasn’t a superstar when he joined arsenal, but he is now and want to dictate. He’ll be a bad influence is he stays. He should go.
