This never-ending frustration for Arsenal fans over whether Alexis Sanchez will still be in the Arsenal team next season looks like it will come to a head next week, once Chile have played the Confederations Cup Final and Alexis and Arsenal reveal their decision.

Arsene Wenger seemed to imply yesterday that Alexis would be honouring his contract even if he didn’t sign an extension, but now the famous David Ornstein on his official BBC account has said that that is not the case, and if Alexis really wants to go then Arsenal will NOT let him run his contract down….

He tweeted an hour ago…..

 made Sanchez big offer, hope he stays. But if set on leaving + fee acceptable possible he’ll go this summer rather than free next 

That sounds very much like he has definitive insider information from the Arsenal camp, but to give Arsenal fans a bit of hope he tweeted half an hour ago…..

Worth pointing out that as things stand Arsenal still yet to receive any offers for Sanchez, Wenger planning with him in the team  

 So what do we make of that? Surely Sanchez’s agent would have lined up a buyer if Alexis wants to go? And isn’t that likely to be Man City?

But here is a question. What if Alexis decides he wants to go, but Arsenal don’t receive a fair offer? What would Wenger do then?
