Without a doubt, Alexis Sanchez is a world-class player who can perform magic with a football at his feet. Having missed out on deadline day in the summer, a move to Manchester City and a reunion with former boss Pep Guardiola, the idea of Sanchez to join Real Madrid has become much livelier.
Online sports news in the UK was sure he would leave last season when the Chilean International made his intentions clear: “I don’t think it has been a very good season for me because I came here to win trophies, to be competing in the Champions League semi-finals and to win the Premier League, and I feel disappointed that we aren’t in a position to win the Premier League or the Champions League.” Furthermore, the bad performances by Arsenal so far have added to that frustration in his mind.
Would Real Madrid actually need Sanchez?
An interesting question, Real Madrid would certainly consider him a strong favorite to join in the January transfer window. As Gareth Bale is looking at an exit from his Madrid career, the Welsh international may well return to the Premier League.
The Spanish giants are having a difficult life in La Liga currently sitting in 4th with 2 defeats and 8 points behind Barcelona. Alexis would be a fine acquisition to strengthen the depth of the squad.
Why Would Betting on Sanchez to Madrid seem more likely than else-where?
Every footballer likes to have new challenges. Alexis’ contract runs out in the summer so rather than leaving on a free; Arsenal might try to cash in on Alexis in January. Alexis, is more likely to leave England then join another club in the country. Spain seems the most obvious choice. With that said, he would fit in best at Madrid.

Alexis Sanchez to stay at Arsenal?
This will never happen! Should the player stay for the January winter period, it is 100% sure that he will leave for a free transfer in the summer 2018. But how is that good for Arsenal? Sanchez’s name is a popular one in football so many clubs will be battling it out to get his signature. In an ideal win-win situation, Arsenal should sell him with only 6 months on his contract left, when they can still make a hefty sum for the talisman. Is it likely to see Sanchez to join Real Madrid?
