It’s quite clear that Alexis Sanchez is unsettled at Arsenal. Contract talks have stalled between the two parties and the 28-year-old was surprisingly dropped to the bench for the Gunners’ crunch match against Liverpool on Saturday.
The decision to drop Sanchez came after reports of a training ground bust up between him and teammates.
Sanchez then took to Instagram to reaffirm his commitment to the club.
While a move away from the Emirates looks more and more likely, rumours of Sanchez’s next club are gaining momentum.
Previous reports had suggested that Arsenal would refuse to sell the Chilean to a Premier League club, but the Mirror are reporting otherwise.
The paper claim that Sanchez is demanding £300,000 per week; an amount way above Arsenal’s wage bracket.
The paper are reporting that Sanchez is one of Antonio Conte’s top priorities in the summer.
A move to Chelsea would infuriate Gunners fans, who have seen their club lose their best players to close rivals in recent years.
The moves of Fabregas to Chelsea (via Barcelona), Nasri to Manchester City and of course Van Persie to Manchester United all leave a bitter taste in the mouths of Arsenal fans.
