If Arsenal must push for the Premier League title and retain their level as a world class club then they must be able to match the wage bills of other clubs.
According to emerging reports, Alexis sanchez is in the want of a return to Spain if Arsenal are unable to meet his wage demand.
The Chile international joined the Gunners from Barcelona in 2014, and has starred in the Premier League despite lifting only the FA Cup since his arrival.
Sanchez may understandably have his eye on bigger things after Arsenal’s recent struggles, and the Daily Star claim he’s keen to move back to La Liga.
Given his pedigree and age, you would not blame him if he makes a huge demand from us as he might not be able to secure another better contract.
Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid have been linked with Sanchez in recent times, while recent reports claim he could also have offers from the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City in England, as well as a big pay day with Paris Saint-Germain or a Chinese Super League club.
Arsenal don’t appear willing to go higher than around £200,000 per week, which may now see them lose an increasingly frustrated Sanchez to a Spanish club.
