Real Madrid certain that Arsenal’s Alexis won’t sign new deal

Real Madrid are claimed to be eyeing a potential deal for Alexis Sanchez, with the club believed to be certain that no new Arsenal contract will be signed.

The Chilean international has failed to agree contract terms with the club despite initial talks 18 months ago, and has appeared increasingly likely to quit the club before next season.

Arsenal actually accepted an offer from Manchester City last summer for his signature, before failing to agree terms with Thomas Lemar, before pulling out of the deal with the Citizens.

Real Madrid are now believed to be growing confident of striking a deal for the former Barcelona man, and would be able to discuss personal terms over a potential free transfer come January.

The Galacticos club are said to believer that Alexis will not be signing a new deal with the Gunners, and any attempt to agree terms would be a waste of time.

Mesut Ozil is also in the same situation at Arsenal, with his contract also running out come next summer, and he also began negotiations 18 months previous to no avail. The German on the other hand is claimed to be open to the possibility of staying beyond his current deal, although Manchester United are believed to be keen.

The duo were key in putting Tottenham Hotspur to the sword only last week, and it will be a huge loss to the club to lose both come next summer, and some big signings will no doubt be needed in their place.

Is there still a chance that Alexis could sign a new contract? Could we persuade him to join Real instead of Man City?

    Sanchez would sign if the offer is very big and Arsenal is in better position. I bet he is still considering the offers from Arsenal and other clubs.

      Stop being delusional man. Had the thing been just about money,he would have agreed to a new contract by hook or by crook. The real reason he wants to leave is the lack of hunger and determination the team lacks but he has tons of it. That’s why I keep on saying we need to win some trophies this season to make him and ozil think that we might actually win something next season too so they sign new contracts. If alexis demanded £350 k a week and we had won at least a single epl title with him in addition to the FA CUP he would have signed a new deal even at £250 or £ 275k a week coz we won him a league title. He is not greedy for money as we think but is too hungry for success than some of the other players and STAN KRONKE

      can we win 10 champions leagues in that time?

    Now that there appears a serious possibility of making top four, it is key that Sanchez stays til end of season. I am slightly more relaxed about losing Ozil in Jan, though would prefer to keep him too til seasons end – even though we then lose them both for no money – since that would increase our chances making of top four. To attract WC replacements next summer we need to finish top four at least. Right now , we need to get Jack in the start eleven. It is clear that he is of more use than Iwobi at PRESENT, though I have seen enough of Wilshere to realise he will never regain the influence he once had before all his injuries. Constant injuries affect even top players influence, even when again fit and this is what has , sadly, happened. But i am talking about right now, when we are on the verge of losing our two most talented players, either in a few weeks or at most in a few months. If Cazorla is magically properly match fit in Jan(which is extremely unlikely) we MIGHT just get away without a top midfield replacement for Ozil, til the summer, but to hold the fort , we definitely need Wilshere right now. I would only offer him a new contract for two years at most and on moderate terms; take it or leave it. He remains a good player and remember he is one of the few who really love the club. But is he , ultimately, good enough? Only as a squad player , I believe. We must not let our hearts rule our heads. The successful managers, like Fergie, Pep, Mourinho, never do so.

    1. Sukhjot Gunner says:

      Well said man but I don’t think if ozil leaves in the summer than cazorla can swap in straight away and begin to show off his magic tricks. I mean the guy has not kicked a football for 14 months now and he himself needs time to settle. Don’t expect him to come in straight away play 90 min and have the same kind of influence that he can….

      1. jon fox says:

        Oh , I so agree. Like almost all of us I have adored Cazorla for his skill , two footedness, sunny character and team ethic. But I have no illusions that at his age with major injuries not yet fully behind him, his most influential days are behind him,. That does not mean though, that he is not still a more than useful player, for a short time only though and IF we and he are lucky. All the greats grow old, sadly.

    We brought all of this on ourselves. Had MR.WENGER extended their contracts before they went into the final year of their contracts,we would have been at a safe place in terms of controlling the way they both will leave. Now it is not in our hands and we can just pray that neither him nor ozil line up against us in the epl next season. I do not see them signing new contracts now unless we win a CUP TREBLE coz I don’t think FA cup will be enough to make them sign new contracts. If we do win the treble though,that would mean progress from last season and maybe they could begin to think that this club wants to win something and maybe agree to new deals. Again,there is just a maybe in this condition too. But I hope that I’m proved wrong and they both sign their extentions in the middle of this season itself…..

    I believe there is no chance Sanchez or Ozil will stay and for Sanchez, it is not about money but about winning major trophies. he could do this with City or Real. My guess is that he wants to play for Pep.

    Let us hope he will help us secure CL football as a parting gift before he leaves for free.

    These guys are not leaving Arsenal………check their body language……..they want to accomplish something……..

    1. Nothing changed says:

      If they are not leaving why have they not signed new contracts?

  6. Ozziegunner@Newcastle upon Hunter says:

    Ex Barcelona players such as Sanchez, are takind a seious risk if they play for Real Madrid. Note the previous article of a Madrid player warning Ozil not to sign with Barcelona. The competition between these two clubs goes beyond football rivalry. Barcelona is in Catalonia and suffered greatly under Franco during and after the Spanish Civil War; Real Madrid was Franco’s team and supported financially by the Spanish State. They hate each other with a passion!

    1. Ivan says:

      That maybe so but other players have played for both and more will again.
