According to reports, Manchester United have reportedly made an approach with the Gunners over a possible offer to lure Chilean Alexis Sanchez away from the Emirates Stadium this month.
The Arsenal star has only six months remaining on his current Gunners deal before the forward becomes a free agent at the conclusion of the campaign. In turn, the North Londoners face the risk of seeing him depart the club for nothing unless they opt to offload during the present transfer window.
His shape this campaign hasn’t suggested that the forward will be staying back, as he’s only scored eight goals and made four assists in 21 matches, performing below the high standards that he set last term.
According to renowned transfer expert Gianluca Di Marzio, Arsenal could have a chance to offload, although it’s Premier League rivals Manchester United who have asked about the attacker which won’t be good enough.
Evening Standard suggests the Gunners want £40million for the Chilean international this New Year, but whether or not they will be paid the figure they are demanding remains to be realized with league leaders Manchester City strongly linked.
