We have seen it all before how players can push for a move away from a club by citing their desire to win titles and trophies as was the case with Luis Suarez who left Liverpool to join Barcelona and win not only La Liga, but the Champions League with his new club.
Every young boy growing up in South America dreams of playing football for either Real Madrid or Barcelona, and while Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez has already lived his dream by playing for the Catalan giants he never achieved the superstar status in Spain that a player of his calibre deserves.
Since arriving at the Emirates the Chilean international has quickly become the fans favourite player by not only giving 100% every time he is on the pitch, but by delivering the goals as well.
So far this season he has once more grabbed the attention of Real Madrid after scoring nine goals in his past five matches, that has Arsenal fans worried that Florentino Perez will try to tempt Arsenal into selling with a big money offer in January.
What Arsenal needs to do is to sit down with the 26-year-old and offer him a new long-term contract that will make him the clubs highest paid player while at the same time adding a huge buy-out clause that will have the Spanish giants thinking twice before making a move.
It’s up to you Mr Wenger, but if you sell Alexis the fans will never forgive you.
