Alexis Sanchez is claimed to have told his agent to try and secure him a move to Manchester City this summer. The Sky Blues are set to be taken over by Pep Guardiola this summer, the manager who signed Alexis Sanchez for Barcelona previously.
Man City are expected to follow this arrival with a number of other top stars in the close-season, and they are no strangers to raiding Arsenal for their best players. Samir Nasri, Bacary Sagna, Gael Clichy, Kolo Toure and Emmanuel Adebayor have all made the switch from us to them in the past seven years.
Now we could be set to lose another top player to our rivals, with reports claiming that Alexis Sanchez is keen to be reunited with his former boss at the Etihad.
Arsenal are enduring one of their most disappointing campaigns at present, with the fans turning on the manager and a number of players, leaving a sour atmosphere to play under at the Emirates Stadium.
Should Alexis be sold to City, there would likely be a huge uproar from the fans, who are already frustrated with the work being done behind the scenes at the club.
A protest was held during the weekend’s 1-0 win over Norwich City, but that would be nothing compared to the reaction that I foresee should this horrifying thought become true.
No more excuses about building a stadium will be listened to any more, and under no circumstance would this be acceptable.
The story does not stem from the most reliable source however, but there is enough possibility under the current circumstances for my blood to boil over the prospect.
How many Arsenal shirts would be burned should this go through? If he wants to leave, then he will have to go abroad…
