Even though the Arsenal and Chile striker Alexis Sanchez finally jetted in to London this week after a summer break extended by the Confederates Cup and then delayed by ‘illness’ to the wantaway player, Arsenal fans were still not really sure if the 28-year old would be playing for the Gunners this season or not, until now that is.
In the space of a day there have been two major developments which in my opinion confirm that Sanchez will not be going anywhere during this summer transfer window. The first, as reported by The Times, is the news that Wenger has put his foot down and made it crystal clear to his forward that Arsenal will not sanction any sale to a club in the English Premier League.
That, however, would only stop the likes of Man City and Chelsea, who are both said to be very keen, on signing our star player, but the latest Arsenal transfer rumours had the big spending French ligue 1 outfit PSG as the main suitors.
That move is also now off as many sources including MailOnline are reporting that the much hyped transfer of Neymar from Barcelona to PSG for nearly £200 million is actually going to happen. So Arsenal fans can now relax and accept that Alexis is staying, for this season at least.
