Alexis Sanchez will LEAVE Arsenal this summer if Arsene Wenger’s valuation is met, talkSPORT told

27 Jul

South American football expert Tim Vickery believes Arsene Wenger will allow Alexis Sanchez to leave Arsenal this summer IF the price is right.

The Chilean international will return to training on Sunday with the Gunners despite stating his desire to play Champions League football next season.

Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City have been strongly linked with a move for the 28-year-old and would provide the forward with the chance to shine in European football’s elite competition.

And Vickery expects Sanchez – despite Arsene Wenger’s insistence his star man will stay – to be playing for a new club by the end of the summer transfer window.

“He’s 28 now Sanchez, if I were Arsene Wenger there’s something that would be going round and round in my head,” Vickery told The Sports Bar.

“[The] 2014 World Cup, [the] 2015 Copa America – all the way to the final, [the] 2017 Confederations Cup, 2018 – assuming they [Chile] qualify – another World Cup, 2019 another Copa America.

“Sanchez is a player who plays with that intensity and he’s at that age – when he was in his pomp – Wenger would let the player go, maybe a year before you thought the player had reached his peak.

“For that reason, it wouldn’t surprise me at the moment when the price is right, they let go of him.”
