Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
Arsenal striker Alexis Sanchez reported wants a move to Real Madrid this summer, in hope of replacing Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Portuguese international has been linked with a move away from Madrid due to lack of support over his tax fraud allegations, and the Daily Star claims Sanchez is working towards replacing him.
Arsenal have reportedly attached a price tag of £50m the Chile international who still has a year left in his current contract. Sanchez has so far refused to sign a new deal for the Gunners, leaving the club with the choice whether to sell him now or hold on to him for another year.
Arsenal have refused to have any negotiation with any Premier League rivals amid rumors Manchester City were keen on his signature, so Real Madrid has increased chances of signing Sanchez if they so wish.
Despite being a former Barcelona player, Los Blancos could well consider a move for the striker who scored 30 goals across all competitions last season. The 28-year-old found the net 39 times in 88 La Liga appearances at Barca.
Real manager Zinedine Zidane is currently overstocked in attacking players so it’s likely the La Liga champions and Champions League holders will have to sell a number of players before they take on any additional player.
The Chilean has just recently given Arsenal one condition on which he can pen a new deal which is to increase his wage to £400-per-week. This new development can be considered a ploy to force Arsenal to sell him because it is certain Arsenal cannot pay such amount for a player.
Reports suggest Sanchez is a transfer target for Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and Manchester City this summer, but his destination if he leaves Arsenal is still a mystery.
