This latest piece of Arsenal transfer news may not mean that the Gunners are now favourites to lift the Premier League trophy next May, or even to finish in the top four. A lot can happen over the course of a season but from the early stages it certainly looks like both the Manchester clubs are going to do better than we are.
So maybe it does not really matter in the long run whether Alexis Sanchez signs for Man City or not, but I think we are all behind Arsene Wenger in his intention to not sell them our star striker. If possible we would prefer to keep Alexis Sanchez away from all of our EPL rivals but with the Chilean coming towards the end of his contract that may not be possible.
The only chance that Wenger and Arsenal have of affecting this is in the January transfer window, although it would mean that we do not have the services of Sanchez in the second half of the season, but it could be that we are already out of the title race by then and so the news reported by The Sun that PSG could be serious rivals to Man City for the striker is maybe very good news as it would mean that we can sell, get some money and still not strengthen a rival.
