This may just prove to be an offer that Arsenal cannot refuse, despite the recent comments from Arsene Wenger about the Gunners deciding not to sell Alexis Sanchez during this summer transfer window. Those comments were made, after all, when it looked like it was our Premier League rivals Man City that would be the destination of the Chilean international star.
How much difference will it make to the Arsenal board and our manager that it is now the French club PSG who are bidding to buy our star striker? Quite a bit I presume and with The Mirror also reporting that the value of their bid is around £70 million when the previous fee talked about was something like £50 million or less it really will be a hard offer to refuse.
We have been hearing through the Arsenal transfer rumour mill that Alexis wants to stay in the EPL and play for Pep Guardiola once again and if Arsenal make him see out the final year of his current contract we will only be putting that off but with PSG said to be willing to more than double his current salary and put all their focus into winning the Champions League I think he would join them if we let him.
So is it time for Arsenal to sell?
