Arsenal favourites to get Alexis back? – Nonsense?

Some bookmakers have slashed the odds to 9-1 that Sanchez will return to Arsenal in the next transfer window, the lowest odds of any side in England. Put it this way, I won’t be parting with my 10 pounds!

It’s been less then 12 months since Sanchez left for Man United. Of all the nonsense rumours to come out of Old Trafford, they are suggesting he now wants to return to Arsenal. I blame Old Trafford for the source as why wouldn’t they regret making the highest paid player in the country someone who now sits on their bench. Leave us out of your mess though….

The story goes that the Chilean is mentally struggling to such a degree he wants to come back to where his football was appreciated. His agent would realise for that to even be a discussion in our board room, his client would have to drop his wage demands by 200,000. If he was willing to throw down his gloves and argue with team-mates to get such a salary, imagine his behaviour if he lost it.

Arsene Wenger built his team around the winger’s strengths; he responded by acting like he was better then everyone else and went through the motions in his last season at the Emirates. You could argue it’s been over a year since we saw him at his best, with no sign of him finding his form.

Even if he accepted an offer on par with Ozil, Stan Kroenke might not want to pay such a sum for a man with no consistency , certainly not a transfer fee. While I criticised our owner for letting contracts run down, he’s been proven right about not paying over the odds. As soon as Alexis nearly doubled his wage, his passion for delivering on the pitch has vanished.

When his family check his bank balance, it would be naive to think they regret leaving London. Peehaps if he could turn back time he would have chosen a different location in Manchester. Going to the blue half would of seen him better himself financially and football wise. Even Man City had a cut off point in terms of what cheque they were willing to write. Pep Guardiola didn’t need his signature to win the League and would’ve questioned what was motivating the move. He too will feel he’s had a lucky escape.

The longer Sanchez struggles as a Red Devil , the less likely anyone in Europe will match his current salary, forcing him to remain in an enviromnent where he is unhappy. The only solution would be heading to the US or China who would provide the finances to use a marquee name to help the sport grow. It would be a waste if before the age of 30, someone who could have been the Premiership’s best talent threw it away for a quick pay day.

    I was so happy to see the back of him..Wenger indulged him ..I quite like the togetherness in the players at the moment…I certainly don’t want him back..

    You can win a few cups with individual players but it takes a team to win the league..

    1. Gab says:

      I wouldn’t want him back even if it is for free

  2. Sue says:

    Oh good God no!!! He can stay & rot at United! Yet another poor performance again tonight resulted in him being subbed!! I’m loving it!!! ?

    1. Kenyanfan says:

      It’s like Morata and Lukaku compete on who can have the worse performance each week, everytime one of them drops a disasterclass the other simply says “hold my beer” it’s actually hilarious.

      1. Sue says:

        You’re right – it is hilarious! What else made me laugh tonight was Keown saying it looks like United signed Ssnchez’s brother!!

  3. Jaydawg says:

    Not sure why we are talking about a player that isn’t a gooner. For the sake of keeping it Arsenal we don’t need Sanchez. Something our board, manager and majority of fans will agree with is that we don’t want him!

    non Arsenal comment I reckon he will come good when Jose leaves

    1. kev says:

      What I don’t understand is the basis on which Sanchez would like to come back.It just seems like a cliche to me that every player who leaves Arsenal and becomes bad will like to go back.He’s on a massive salary and despite average performances still gets selected so why will he want to come back.Also just like you I believe he can come good when Mourinho leaves because class is permanent.

      1. Wa Gunner. says:

        Sanchez seems worn out.He is loosing his class every day

  4. Kenyanfan says:

    Wenger was a gentleman. He was a father to them all but they thought they were WC.where are they now?!Nasri,Alexis-soon,song,fabrigus,Vermaelen,Sagna,clinchy etc…their stars went dull as soon as they left.hate him or not but the prof made average players look world class.i salute him that he dint sign both morata and lukaku as many wanted.seen Lukaku’s step overs today?lol!! Its as if bith morata and lukaku are competing for the weekly worst performances.
    Thanks for settling with Luca

    1. kev says:

      Yet what better trophies did they win when they were here.I hope you don’t forget that some left due to our club not winning major trophies which was to a large extent Wenger’s fault.Even pir best player ever left us to win trophies.They would’ve regretted if they stayed anyways.We do not need Sanchez and he also does not need us after all he earns so much.Alsi he can come good just like any other off form player.

    2. John Ibrahim says:

      exactly…fans demanded morata and luakaku to be signed at whatever cost….look at them now….

      the same goes with sanchez…where are those fans calling pay sanchez whatever he wants now?

      1. kev says:

        The same said we should keep Sanchez allowing him to go for free basing it on the fact that we didn’t need the money and shouldn’t be selling to a rival.They same started blaming Sanchez when he started giving us attitude and stuff.How could you ever think of allowing your best player to go for free?Do you think Real Madrid would allow Ronaldo to go for free to Barca if it cane to that?Symbolic management all round from the club even seemed to be approved.

    3. msty says:

      true.. i remember the 3 wer sign the same season and alot of people tot laca was d worst of the 3 due to him being sub at 60min wenger seems not to trust him fast forward to this season both morata and lukaku are living on past glory while laca is proving to be quality… he now pose that fear factor to any defense….

  5. ThirdManJW says:

    I wouldn’t touch Sanchez with a barge pole right now! His wages have sky rocketed, whilst his performances have plummeted!

    I kind of understand why some Arsenal fans have hate towards him, but not from me personally. He was brilliant for us, and almost single-handed won us two FA Cups. He was the inspirational figure head that drove us forward. Wenger went missing, Ozil went missing, pretty much EVERY Arsenal player went missing, bar Sanchez. He stood up! Even when he was having a bad game, no one put more effort in than he did. The big regret is that we didn’t have more like him, with that mentality, and work ethic, at the club at the same time. Even in his final season, when he was supposedly playing terrible, I think he was our top scorer, and had some assists when he left.

    I can also understand why left. Obviously money played a huge role (choosing Utd over City), but he still would have left without Utd’s offer. Arsenal were a club on the decline, zero ambition, a fractured fan base, and a manager leading us into the abyss!

    We have moved on now, but I have very fond memories of Sanchez. I love re-watching his goal against Villa in the Cup final…wow!

    1. Sue says:

      Well he made his bed now he has to lie in it

      1. ozziegunner says:

        Sue, and he has his dogs to keep him warm?.

        1. ozziegunner says:

          ThirdManJW, I concur with your except for Sanchez’s last season at Arsenal, when he went on like a spoilt brat.

    2. kev says:

      Thank you for appreciating him.Even till this day I find it very difficult to hate some Arsenal players because some gave their all when they played for us.Sanchez did many great things for us and even though he had an attitude he was a stronger character and fighter.He was definitely our best player and put in maximum effort for most of his time here.

      1. Goonerboi says:

        I’d have to agree with you there Kev! I remember reading an interview where oxlade Chamberlain said Sanchez would do pushups whilst listening to Arsene Wengers team talks and how bewildering it was. He had the workrate and passion of CR7. Just disappointed in how it all ended for both Arsenal and himself. Wish we got martial as part of the swap

    3. Kenny Rolfe says:

      Agree with every word you said ThidMan. Also the goal, was it against United or Liverpool? When we went 3 up in twenty minutes. Someone help me out.

      1. Sue says:

        It was against United Kenny ?

        1. Kenny Rolfe says:

          Thank you Sue.

  6. Maks says:

    Ha ha ha there is no way he will return. Who would pay his wages? Arsenal? No.
    Wenger IS out!
    Sanchez IS out, too…
    Emery is not stupid.

  7. John says:

    He was an extremely divisive presence and NOT a team player. He is not worthy of an Arsenal jersey anymore.

  8. Kenny Rolfe says:

    He misses Arsenal but just as much, he misses London. All that money to spend and he’s stuck in rainy Manchester. Serves him right really, following the money signs

  9. Innit says:

    We desperately need wingers of his caliber
    3 reasons
    1. the way he left —total jerk
    2. where he left too– our rivals
    3. his crazy wages

    Right now our best winger could be Bellerin ironically
    I think he is more of a winger than a defender

    1. ozziegunner says:

      Innit, I agree ?

    2. jon fox says:

      IF, and a big if too, Bellerin has ANY place in our team, it HAS to be ONLY as a winger. We do not have a winger and Bellerin has shown promise going forward; his crossing has improved under Emery and his pace is special. BUT as a defender, he is an unmitigated disaster and always has been. So , either an out and out winger OR out of Arsenal altogether, for me.

      1. Midkemma says:

        Shut up Jon.
        Bellerin isn’t as bad as you make out, he has faults and yes, he can improve. He isn’t scoring own goals and setting up the opposition every 2 mins which is the impression one could get if they listened to you.

        Bellerin did show promise as a RB when he first came into the 1st team and took Debuchy place.

        Sensible people will consider what changed and see that Bellerin trained a lot more with the 1st team, the players who was coached by Wenger. Wenger had good and bad points, one of the bad points was poor def training and we have witnessed this with Bellerin.

        You refuse to give Emery time to train Bellerin, made up your mind without looking at reason.

        1. jon fox says:

          You are being a moth to my brilliant flame ,as usual. How amusing for me to see your angst.

  10. Kenny Rolfe says:

    He’s not the only one who’s left us and regretted it

  11. adi says:

    Alexis, like Nasri, Fabregas did not exactly back stab Wenger, but left because they criticize upper management for the lack of ambition. Perhaps they meant wage wise, or inability to strengthen team with better players. They all still had very good relationships with Wenger, but not the club and mixed feelings with the fans.

  12. JJPawn says:

    Swap Ramsay for a defensive player…


    or maybe Ramsay for Alexis, both would benefit? Alexis gets 200K from Arsenal and balance from United for the duration of the contract. Reuniting Alexis with Ozil would ignite poor Arsenal attack that is now relying on luck.


    1. jim wall says:

      Swap elneney with xakai.
      Swap that rat alexis with martial

    2. Declan says:

      Impossible unless it was a loan, as MU would not be allowed to pay part of his wages. Anyway it’s all stuff and nonsense, we don’t want him, he made his choice and it’s his mistake. Why should we help him and MU?

    3. jon fox says:

      Sorry, but exactly what planet are you on?

  13. Sue says:

    Sanchez could always drop the football for the piano ?

    1. Nassan Okotchi says:

      How many premier league assists has mesut ozil got since his debut in England

  14. Gumoshabe Naboth says:

    By the time of his last season at arsenal, he was out of his moods. Didn’t respect his contract. Let him stay at man utd. He could even not celebrate the goals scored by lacazette.

  15. LENOhappy says:

    @Nassan,there’s something called “google,you might want to try it

  16. jon fox says:

    Chances of Sanchez returning to Arsenal are high; almost as high as my chances of being the next Pope, in fact. My chance to be Pope is zero , so Sanchez is a much higher , say about 80%. But that is MINUS 80%. FAR LESS THAN ZERO. Next topic please and let us hope it is a sensible one next time! However, the chance that he will not be at United, either, next season , along with Moaninho, is a positive and really high chance. Sanchez is the sort of mercenary creep who gives players a bad name; talented BUT self centred to his core and the last Arsenal player on Earth I would ever wish to meet in person. Actually, on reflection, make that second last, after Cashley Hole.

  17. Kurt says:

    And here many of u guys said/thought Sanchez is better then EDEN HAZARD!! Please!

  18. Michael Murunga says:

    Just let Sanchez feed his dogs in peace, he can always call on them to help if he needs to be substituted.

  19. ade says:

    No!!! Sanchez should be re signed, he has bad attitudes.
