Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola this week moved to deny speculation claiming he contacted Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez over a potential transfer, but is the rumour mill purposely ignoring key information in order to spout their rubbish?
The Gunners forward has been in talks over a new contract since last season, and has so far failed to agree terms over an extension. He has since been switched to a centre-forward role, bringing out the best in our star, and his importance further-more enhanced.
The news sources have all claimed that the Chilean striker is demanding vast amounts of money, with today’s source claiming he wants parity with Manchester United’s Paul Pogba who earns a whopping £290K per-week, but nobody seems to mention the all-important fact that Arsene Wenger could prove central to negotiations.
The French manager is into his final year of his contract, and should be credited with the vast improvement brought out in the Chilean since implementing a new system to accommodate him as a striker.
Why is nobody talking about the fact that Wenger is into his final contract, and could be a HUGE stumbling block when it comes to the negotiations between Mesut Ozil or Alexis Sanchez and our club?
Alexis is the type of player who wants to be playing every minute of every football match, and has a hunger to win. I firmly believe that he would be more interested in winning things than money, and he is certain that he will be able to challenge under Wenger, otherwise he wouldn’t have joined.
Can our club guarantee success after the Frenchman leaves the club? Looking at Manchester United’s dismal years after Alex Ferguson, we cant.
Are the papers continually overlooking these facts in order to create rumours? Could we keep Alexis and Mesut even if Wenger leaves?
