Everybody is asking the same question, will Arsenal sell Alexis Sanchez on the summer transfer deadline day? For the last few days, the Chilean star’s future remained one of the most discussed topics in British media as Manchester City took the initiatives to begin talks with the Gunners regarding a possible transfer. Previously, Arsenal has made their intentions loud and clear by stating that Sanchez was not leaving. That’s why; many have suggested that Arsenal’s eagerness to start talking with Manchester City suddenly seems any deal involving Alexis is feasible.

Alexis to Man United?

El Mercurio, a media outlet from Chile claim everything is now ready for this transfer to succeed from Manchester City and Alexis Sanchez’s entourage.

Arsenal perhaps responsible for the hold up as they are yet to reach any agreement with the Sky Blues for their South American attacking sensation. According to this report, City is offering a four-year contract for Sanchez. The Arsenal star will earn a rumored $14 million per year at the Etihad. The price tag slapped on the Chilean attacker is believed to be around 70 million pounds. Pep Guardiola has been reported to have agreed to offer Raheem Sterling to Arsenal as swap deal, while Arsene Wenger may have demanded Sergio Aguero instead. Alexis, no doubt, is serving the last year of his contract as Arsenal most probably will not extend his deal.

According to this report, Sanchez has informed his close sources that he is “desperate” to make a move away from the Emirates in this window, especially after another horrible start to the season. This urge from the Chilean international encouraged intermediaries to have a word with Manchester United to inquire if they have any interest, and while Jose Mourinho would be more than happy to bring in the player, the 28-year-old’s first choice is believed to be City because of his previous working experience and good relation with Pep Guardiola during their time at Barcelona.

Would Arsene Wenger really be interested to make a deal with his old foe Jose Mourinho? The United boss, don’t forget, has previously taunted Wenger calling him a “specialist in failure”. Arsenal fans, on the other hand, will be furious if this deal with Man United sees the daylight. We all know how Robin van Persie left the North Londoners to join United in one of the most controversial transfers in Premier League history. So, what you think? Will history repeat itself?
