Alexis Sanchez to Man United: Jose Mourinho phones Arsenal star

Alexis Sanchez

Talks over a new deal have been shelved and Arsene Wenger could be forced to cash in or risk losing him for nothing next summer. So I do not understand this kind of anxiety one-and-a-half-years before the end of contracts.

The Chile global is yet to commit to signing a new deal with the Gunners, with less than 18 months remaining on his current deal.

And Merson considers Sanchez's coming at Stamford Bridge would give Chelsea an impressive replacement if Eden Hazard comes to Real Madrid, as reports in Spain have indicated is a chance.

"I don't know if Victor Moses will be available", he said.

Chelsea have lined up the Arsenal star and Romelu Lukaku for the summer and are very keen on getting one of them or both if possible.

The Chilean's intense desire to win and be the best is what makes him such a good player for Arsenal but it's also what may drive him into the arms of the Champions elect.

"I definitely think Sanchez could be a Chelsea player next season". Arsenal will have no choice - if Chelsea are the team that are prepared to pay £50m then they won't let him see his contract out.

"Folks say, "Oh well, they won't sell to Chelsea", however they sold Robin van Persie to Manchester United so they won't be fussed about that". He is a world-class footballer so he would fit in at Chelsea.

Wenger sees no reason for concern, though, and has stressed the attacker still has well over a year left on his existing deal.

Now the report in Chile suggests the Blues will have competition from English rivals for Sanchez's signature, with the El Show de Prensafútbol reporting that Sanchez "has made a decision to leave Arsenal" and is interested in joining one of the Premier League rivals.
