The never-ending saga of Alexis Sanchez’s contract at Arsenal continues to trundle along, and although the Chilean said that he knows where his future lies, it seems very far from certain to the rest of us. Despite Carlo Ancelotti saying that he would be interested in Alexis if it wasn’t for crazy money, his boss at Bayern Munich, Uli Hoeness, has categorically ruled out paying the huge wage demands from our Duracell Bunny.
“If we want to win the Champions League we’ll have to invest but we can’t spend crazy money. We are not going to pay € 100 million to get Verratti or € 25 million-a-year to get Sanchez.” The Munich president confirmed.
So where does that leave Alexis now? It looks like it must be Arsenal, as Arsene Wenger is adamant that he won’t do business with another Premier League club and surely only Manchester City and Chelsea would even come close to offering the sort of wages that Alexis is demanding (unless of course he moves into the obscurity of China).
There is already a report from Chile, who may have a little more information as he has just left his national team after losing the Confederations Cup Final, saying that the Bayern Munich snub simply means that he will be staying with the Gunners.
But that doesn’t neccessarily mean he will sign a new contract…..
