Alexis a £140 million risk worth taking for Arsenal

In a story named "Sanchez's ways to leave Arsenal in January", besides claiming he wants out, the newspaper interviewed Juan de Dios Crespo, a Spanish sporting lawyer who was involved in the Neymar transfer this summer.

Despite enduring heartbreak on transfer deadline day when his move to City fell through, Alexis still plans to reunite with Pep Guardiola at the Etihad Stadium and intends to join City either in January or next summer when his Arsenal contract is up and he becomes the hottest free agent on the market.

"You take a Sanchez into the final year of his contract, you sacrifice £60-£70million income and at the end of the season you will have to buy somebody for that amount of money", Wenger told beIN Sports.

With Arsenal all but resigned to losing Sanchez, the offer of Real Madrid might prove to be tempting as they can recoup close to £50 million instead of losing him on a free. Arsenal's bulky German wing back replaced Rob Holding at half time and immediately showed the kind of attacking intent and end product which had previously been lacking down the flanks. Chile worldwide Alexis Sanchez - who came close to a deadline day exit - is they only Gunner to be included.

Basu stressed that the arrest would be followed by further actions by the police, providing no additional details on the issue. Metropolitan Police Deputy Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu said that the arrest was "significant".

Also, Sanchez being a former Barcelona player is not keen to turn out for Los Blancos although Perez is determined to make a bid and land a world class player in the January transfer window.

"On top of that, Chile had a bad experience as well".

The Blues lost 3-0 to Arsenal at The Emirates last season before Chelsea exacted their revenge with a 3-0 win at Stamford Bridge back in February.

The Gunners host Germany's Cologne in Europe's second-tier competition on Thursday and Cech, who won the title with Chelsea in the 2012-13 season, said the club must take a call on how they approach the tournament.
