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.

        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

          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.

            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.

      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.

              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.

    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!

    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.

    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

    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.
