What Arsenal's squad want to happen to Alexis Sanchez amid Man Utd rumours

This January transfer window has been a bit mad already, with a number of high-profile sagas gripping football fans.

Virgil van Dijk moved to Liverpool for £75m, the Reds then sold Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona for £145m and now, Alexis Sanchez could be on the verge of completing a sensational move to Manchester United.

The Chilean has been close to an exit ever since he entered the last year of his contract in the summer.

Manchester City had a £60m bid rejected on deadline day but now, Arsenal appear like they will cave in, with Jose Mourinho's side prepared to offer him around £350,000-a-week.

Ridiculous money, we know.

The whole ordeal surrounding Sanchez has been a huge hinderance to Arsenal, with his on-field strops and clear lack of effort certainly contributing to their poor season.

And now, it appears the rest of the squad has had enough and they have made a demand to the club regarding the 29-yeat-old.


According to the Evening Standard, Sanchez's teammates - for now - want his exit sorted before they take on Crystal Palace on Saturday afternoon.


His presence is supposedly causing a division in the dressing room, with Arsene Wenger's decision to drop his from the squad to face Bournemouth influenced by the tension he is creating.

They want him gone to eliminate the prospect of him potentially being recalled or creating another media circus before the Palace game.

The deal to ship him off to Old Trafford is supposedly being held up by Henrikh Mkhitaryan and his agent Mino Raiola, with the pair trying to get every penny they can for the Armenian to swap Manchester for London.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Bordeaux wonder-kid Malcom are both also being linked with a move to the Emirates and it would certainly be handy if Arsenal could get at least one of the trio before the weekend.

If the squad get their way, we could see a new-look Gunners starting XI on Saturday.
