I have never known a winter transfer window to cause so much controversy between Arsenal fans as this one, and this move of Alexis Sanchez to Man United has divided the fans like none other than since RVP went to United many moons ago, but maybe Arsene Wenger is actually going to improve the team by getting rid of the sulky Chilean and bringing in Mhkitarayan and Aubameyang?
The ex-England and Man United defender Phil Neville certainly thinks so. He told the Express today: “I can see Henrikh Mkhitaryan actually going to Arsenal and being a fantastic signing for them, I really do,” Neville said.
“If Arsenal sign Mkhitaryan and Aubameyang, say from Dortmund, which is what the speculation is, Arsenal may be a better team because they got two really, really good players.
“Mkhitaryan, we didn’t really see the best of him at Manchester United.
“I’m a massive fan of him, I thought we saw glimpses particularly this season but never did I think he was probably going to be in Jose’s starting eleven.
“So he needs to go to a club where he’ll be allowed to flourish and maybe Arsenal is that club.”
This is a ex-United player who has watched Mhki play many times in the Premier League and knows first-hand how good he is. But how many Arsenal fans believe we could end up better off withour Sanchez?
