There has been a massive amount of bets placed on Alexis Sanchez moving from Arsenal to Manchester City this summer ever since the Chilean gave a bearhug to Pep Guardiola after the Gunners 2-2 draw against Pep’s team.
I am sure that Arsenal would normally have no intention of selling our best player to one of our biggest rivals, but the fact is that City have consistently overpaid for our players in the past and I could easily see them coming in with the biggest bid for Sanchez.
But today’s big Arsenal transfer rumour is that City could persuade Wenger to let Alexis move north by offering Sergio Aguero in exchange, as the Argentinian is not very happy at the Etihad at the moment. While he is playing at the moment he was unceremoniously dropped by Guardiola as soon as Jesus Gabriel arrived with the manager criticizing Aguero’s performances against the big teams.
Also if Alexis was to go to City, then there is no way that there would be room for him, Aguero and Jesus in the side next season, so the perfect solution would be for a swap with Arsenal. This is likely to appease the fans despite losing Sanchez, and Aguero would certainly be first choice at the Emirates.
So what do you think? Would the arrival of Aguero lessen the pain of Sanchez leaving?
