Alexis Sanchez is currently having a setback in his career, with his contract dilemma at Arsenal.
The United swap deal looked quite promising, however, the move is progressing at a lesser degree owing to huge demands from Henrikh Mkhitaryan, which the Gunners are finding hard to put up with.
The Chilean, known for his energy, skill, and work-rate on the pitch, has been a valuable asset for the Emirates outfit since his advent back in 2014.
Although right-footed, attributable to his efficacy with either foot, the anchorman has been deployed as a supporting striker, a winger, a false-9, and even as an attacking midfielder.
The 29-year-old, however, is currently edging closer towards the exit door, after being excluded from training for Arsenal’s clash with Crystal Palace. The former Barca man was made to train at Arsenal’s London Colney HQ aside from the main team.
According to Mirror, it serves as an indication for the conclusion of the winger’s life at the Emirates, as he was condemned to do normal training on Wednesday.
Accordingly, Arsenal are pondering ways to cope up with the No.7’s absence for long-term, with Mkhitaryan accompanying them in the near future expectedly.
The Armenian’s agent, Mino Raiola, is reportedly meeting with Arsenal chiefs to address the finer details thoroughly.
With Sanchez’s Arsenal contract set to run out by the end of this campaign, Wenger would most reasonably comply with the most fruitful deal in January rather than letting the talented figure leave for nothing in the summer.
Furthermore, despite the massive wage demands, the introduction of the United midfielder would without a doubt fortify the club’s firepower to a considerable extent.
