Alexis Sanchez’s future as a Gunner is in immense doubt as a recent report from the Spanish outlet Don Balon has claimed that Barcelona might try to resign the Chilean if Jorge Sampaoli joins the Catalan club at the end of the season.
Yesterday, The Sun reported that the 28-year-old is set to leave the club and their recent 5-1 defeat at hands of Bayern Munich has worsened the situation.
Further, it was also reported that the players had a go at each other in the dressing room after the game and the Chilean sensation was furious about it.
With Arsene Wenger’s future in doubt and Sanchez also stalling his contract talks with Arsenal, it is a strong probability that he might look to find a way out of the club in the summer and if the reports from Spain are to be believed, his next destination might be Barcelona for the second time in his career.
The former Udinese hotshot has been firing all the cylinders this season and has scored 20 goals in all competitions and has further assisted 11.
Quite an astonishing number certainly, but his frustration on the pitch is clearly visible as none of the attacking personnel are providing a capable support at times. And same was the case at Allianz Arena as the 28-year-old was spotted screaming at his teammates on the night.
All in all, it is fair to say that Arsenal will be facing some serious crisis this summer as the departure of Wenger is probable, hence, finding a replacement would be an uphill task.
Barcelona, on their part, are uncertain about Luis Enrique’s future as well and it is expected that the 46-year-old might leave the club, hence, the Blaugranas have identified Jorge Sampaoli as a potential successor.
And should any such deal happens, the Spanish sources have claimed that the Argentinian boss will make a move for the unsettled striker in the summer; the reason being, his previous experience with the 28-year-old during his Chile national team tenure.
