5 reasons why Arsenal should sell Alexis Sanchez
Arsenal and Alexis Sanchez have been at loggerheads regarding the latter’s contract situation for a while now. The Chilean is reportedly demanding close to £250-000-a-week – almost double his current wage – to renew with the Emirates outfit and also wants the club to bring in reinforcements that will help them realistically challenge for the Premier League title.
The demands of the 28-year-old seem just when you look at it from a neutral perspective, given a player of the caliber of Sanchez needs to be playing for a team constantly challenging for top honours. However, it doesn’t quite add up from Arsenal’s perspective when you look at it and thus we look at the reasons why the Gunners should look to sell the Chilean in the summer.
Here are 5 reasons why Arsenal should sell Alexis Sanchez once the summer transfer window starts:
#1 To maintain squad harmony
It is well documented that an unhappy player could disrupt the harmony of the entire squad. Perhaps the Gunners’ poor form ever since Sanchez’s contract situation has been making the headlines could stem from this only but it is hard to tell until you have first hand information about the environment in the dressing room.
However, the Chilean’s petulant behaviour on the the pitch and sulking when substituted has reportedly angered his teammates and should the Gunners not allow his departure in the summer, it is only likely to get worse from here.
