Real Madrid Eyeing This Arsenal Hotshot: A Worthy Successor Of Cristiano Ronaldo?

Alexis Sanchez’s current contract situation at Arsenal is not going to be resolved anytime soon. The Chilean’s current contract ties him at the club until the end of this season and he hasn’t signed an extension yet.

Given Sanchez’s stature, there won’t be any dearth of suitors in the market and he would be able to negotiate a deal when the transfer window opens in January. A number of clubs have been hot on the heels for him with the latest being Real Madrid.

The Spanish giants haven’t enjoyed a good season as they have been outpaced by Barcelona in the La Liga, while in the Champions League too, luck hasn’t been on their side as they had to digest a defeat at the hands of Tottenham Hotspur.

Zinedine Zidane decided to sanction the move of both Alvaro Morata and James Rodriguez in a single window but their absence has had a huge effect on the team, as Real looked toothless in their attack sometimes.

Since Sanchez arrived at Emirates Stadium in 2014, he, alongside Mesut Ozil, has formed a core setup that has acted as the backbone for the Gunners over the last few years. Both the players are out of contract in the next summer and neither of them is likely to stay at the club beyond this season.

Sanchez had his chance to switch his allegiance, as Manchester City came calling with a whopping £60m bid on the deadline day and the Gunners even agreed the transfer fee but a deal didn’t materialise as it was too late to bring a replacement for him.

Thus the North London giants missed out from receiving a huge stash of cash for the Chilean international. With Gareth Bale’s future at Santiago Bernabeu in doubt, Madrid are ready to make Sanchez their marquee signing.

The attacker might be up for grabs in January but Wenger is unlikely to make him available in winter. So he will have the chance to make a move in the next summer for free. However, Sanchez wants a guarantee that his demands will be met and he wants to be absolutely secure about his position at the club.

The 28-year-old, who will be turning a year older in December, hasn’t had a good run but he surely does have the ability to cause a major upset to a team. Arsenal are pretty determined to hold their prized asset until the season ends and Real Madrid might have to wait until the next summer to have a shot at the player.
