Almost every Arsenal fan will be hoping that Arsene Wenger can somehow persuade the Chile international star to change his mind about leaving Arsenal this summer and instead to decide to pledge his long term future to the Gunners by signing a new contract, but in reality most of us do not believe that Alexis Sanchez will be playing his home club matches at the Emirates Stadium next season.
If that is going to be the case, though, it would be a lot better for Arsenal if the striker was not playing against the Gunners and that may well happen if he signs for an English Premier League rival, with both Chelsea and Man City having been strongly linked through various Arsenal transfer rumours in the media.
Thankfully for us it was also being reported that a very attractive transfer fee and pay package was being offered by the German champions Bayern Munich but according to The Mirror this may not be enough. They are reporting that the Chilean is demanding much more from Bayern than he would accept from one of our EPL rivals, over £400,000 a week.
The Bundesliga champions fear that Alexis is deliberately pricing himself out of joining them to force a transfer back to his old boss Pep Guardiola. So what should Wenger and Arsenal do?
