Alexis Sanchez will not feature against Bournemouth today according to the Guardian.
Manchester City who has been leading the race to sign Sanchez all season seems to have cool their interest in the last 48hrs over transfer fee demands by Arsenal. Manchester United, on the other hand, sees an opportunity and are ready to step in and pay the price. Manchester United themselves need an urgent injection of firepower, seeing their summer marque signing struggling in front of goal.
Liverpool and Chelsea have also been mentioned in the last couple of days as a potential destination, in what now looks like Sanchez would rather be anywhere else except Arsenal.
If the report by Guardian is correct and Sanchez did not feature in the Bournemouth game, it is the clearest indication that any tiny hope that Sanchez will remain at Arsenal beyond January 31st is finally dead.
Alexis Sanchez was in the training on Saturday ahead of the team’s trip to the South Coast, but a report that he has been left behind indicate that negotiation on his exit has reached a point of certainty, at least enough to exclude him from the manager’s plan going forward.
This may also indicate that Arsenal may have reached an agreement with a replacement for Sanchez. It is understood that Wenger would only sanction Sanchez transfer if a replacement is found.
Yesterday, a staff member of Elenko Sports, Leonardo Cornacini, the agency that is looking after Bordeaux’s Brazilian starlet, Malcom, who has been heavily linked to Arsenal as the replacement for Sanchez announced on Facebook that he is in London.
