Alexis Sanchez has made his intentions pretty clear that he wants to play in the Champions League in the next season. Speculations have been rife on his future as the Chilean superstar has been a target for a number of clubs.
Since moving from Barcelona, the Chilean superstar has been the focal point of Arsenal. The 28-year-old has scored 72 goals till now in his Gunners career and has been a revelation for the North London club in the last few seasons.
A very erratic last season compelled the Gunners to book a place outside of the top four for the first time in the last two decades. Sanchez is utterly disappointed with the result and has expressed his desire to leave the club.
But Arsene Wenger has stood firm as he wants the Chilean superstar to honour his contract. Sanchez has been harbouring a move to reunite with his former mentor Pep Guardiola at Manchester City but Wenger has made it clear he would rather let him go for free than release him this season.
Let us take a look at 3 possible destinations for the Chilean seeking European football.
A surprise inclusion on this list. United have not been linked heavily with the player but Jose Mourinho knows the player is capable of turning around things on his own and if he somehow cracks a deal for the player, United’s chances in the next season would be much higher.
Sanchez is in his last year of the contract although he has been offered a new improved contract, he is yet to sign on the dotted line as he is considering a number of options.
Mourinho has the backing of the club hierarchy as he has been sanctioned additional funds to bring his favourite player to the club. United are yet to submit a formal offer but time is still there for them to make a move.
Sanchez’s arrival at the Nou Camp in 2011 started a new chapter in his life as he went on to enjoy a very successful spell at Barcelona. In three years, the Chilean forward won six trophies under the guidance of Guardiola before moving to England.
Guardiola is an avid admirer of the player and would love to work with the player again. City already have a dream attacking lineup which boasts of David Silva, Bernardo Silva, Kevin De Bruyne and Sergio Aguero and Sanchez’s addition would be an icing on the cake for the Sky Blues.
The Spanish giants have already loaned James Rodriguez to Bayern Munch and a number of other players are expected to leave with the likes of Isco and Gareth Bale. Madrid have been chasing Kylian Mbappe but Monaco’s tough stance has made it difficult.
A move for Sanchez makes sense. The 28-year old has experience of La Liga and would be suitable to Real’s counter attacking based style.
