Arsene Wenger provides timetable on Alexis Sanchez’s future

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger this evening provided an update on the future of Alexis Sanchez, following Arsenal’s defeat to Bournemouth.


The story surrounding the future of Chilean international Sanchez was one of the talking points of the summer transfer window, with all of Bayern Munich, PSG, Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City having expressed an interest in the 29-year-old.

A deadline day move to the Etihad to join up with former boss Pep Guardiola was labelled as ‘imminent’ by a number of outlets at the end of August, but, in the end, a move failed to materialise, mainly due to Arsenal’s inability to secure a deal for Monaco winger Thomas Lemar.


As a result, Sanchez was left with no choice but to stay put in North London, though it has still long been widely predicted that the South American will depart the Emirates, either this month for a nominal fee or for free in the summer upon the expiration of his contract.

Manchester City maintained their status as the leading contenders for his signature up until this earlier this week, when Manchester United were also confirmed to have tabled an offer for Arsenal’s star man.

And, as per a number of updates since, the Red Devils have firmly overtaken their fierce rivals in the race for Sanchez, with Gianluca Di Marzio and several other leading journalists having claimed this afternoon that the South American’s absence from Arsenal’s squad to face Bournemouth was due to him having agreed terms with United over an imminent move to Old Trafford.

All that is left is for Ed Woodward and co. to find an agreement with Arsenal, with the two clubs thought to be close to a deal based on cash plus midfielder Henrikh Mkihtaryan.
