Alexis Sanchez treated unjustly and getting stick in Arsenal dressing room for failed move to City.
Arsenal failed to convince Alexis Sanchez for a contract renewal. The Chilean wanted a move away from Arsenal to City. He wanted to reunite with former boss Pep Guardiola.
City made a bid on deadline day. But the transfer failed because Arsenal were unable to replace him.
During Arsenal’s 4-0 thrashing against Liverpool, we saw him laughing on the bench.
It made us question his loyalty. It made us unsure whether he wanted to stay or not.
But later in an Instagram post he said he’s “back home”. And since then we’re confused about what does the Chilean want.
Since then, the Chilean forward has had an awkward time at Arsenal with his teammates.
Recently, the Arsenal forward’s teammate revealed that he’d been getting trolled for his failed move. Here’s what Chub Apkom had to say about his fellow teammate:
“We do banter about it to be fair,”
“But at the end of the day, he’s still at Arsenal. Everyone is happy, the fans are happy and he’s happy.
“I think with a player like Sanchez he just blocks it out because all he wants to do is play football.
“He’s so focused on football, he blocks out a lot of negativity and transfer rumours.”
We’re glad that Alexis Sanchez can take a joke. Or there would’ve been a great dispute in the locker room.
Although Arsene Wenger has repeatedly said that he has no intentions of letting the Chilean go but after he tried to replace him on deadline day, we’re unsure about the Chilean’s future.
Only Alexis Sanchez now can clear what he wants by signing a new contract. We hope he does because Arsene Wenger took a big gamble by keeping him. His contract ends next summer. And if we don’t sell him or if he doesn’t sign a renewal, we’ll suffer a great loss.
