According to The Mirror via the Metro, Alexis Sanchez is ready to stay at the Emirates stadium for another six months till the summer transfer window commences.
Despite agreeing to remain with the North London club, Manchester City want the striker on a free contract as soon as his contract expires next year. They are also ready to make him the highest-paid Premier League player as they have offered him a £400,000-a-week deal which includes £75,000 as his image right wages, according to reports from the Etihad Stadium.
Arsene Wenger will be happy to retain one of his important players for at least six months. He will be relieved to hear the good news because he can’t afford to let go of the Chilean striker in January as his team faces gruel challenges from Tottenham and Liverpool for the fourth position in the League which will guarantee a spot in next season’s Champions League play-offs.
City are reportedly not in a hurry to sign the top striker. The Citizens currently have squad filled with quality strikers. Pep Guardiola is, therefore, patiently waiting in order to get him for free.
Arsene Wenger will be hoping to hear good news from Mesut Ozil who is certainly going to leave the Emirates stadium. It is yet to be seen if Wenger would love to see him leave as a free agent at the end of the season or he will sell him to Manchester United or Barcelona in the upcoming transfer market.
