Alexis Sanchez Quits Arsenal After Row With Wenger. See Where He’s Going Next…
Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez quits after explosive arguments with coach Arsene Wenger.
According to a report in The Guardian UK, this summer will mark the end of Alexis Sanchez’s time as an Arsenal player.
The Telegraph UK also confirmed the same report.
This is coming barely just 24 hours after the Chilean forward was dropped by Arsene Wenger for Arsenal’s derby against Liverpool at Anfield.
Sanchez’s behaviour has intensified speculation over the player’s future at Arsenal.
According to the report, Sanchez was dropped after a series of arguments with his manager which stem directly from his performance during Arsenal’s 5-1 defeat to Bayern Munich in the Champions League last month.
Wenger was reportedly furious with Sanchez for being selfish and turning on his team-mates both on and offthe pitch and after the game.
Sanchez was reported to have “walked off the training pitch mid-session last week for which a number of his team-mates confronted him in the changing-room.”
Wenger left Sanchez on the bench for the Liverpool in the interest of squad harmony, a move many fans criticized.
Sanchez has made it clear that he plans to leave this summer after failing to agree a new deal.
The striker is believed to be heading for Ligue 1 champions, Paris Saint-Germain.

Reports say Paris Saint-Germain are willing to make Sanchez one of the world’s highest-paid players with a massive £300k-a-week contract.
Speaking about his decision to leave Sanchez out of the starting line-up, Wenger said it was a matter of tactics.
Wenger denied a breakdown in his relationship with the former Barcelona star as the reason.
“Everyone will come to the same conclusion.
“But I am strong enough and lucid enough to analyse the impact.
“I wanted to play two players who were strong in the air and then bring Sanchez on in the second half.
“I don’t deny Alexis Sanchez is a great player. A decision like that is not easy to make, you have to stand up for it.”
Wenger is reported to have agreed in principle on a new two-year contract with Arsenal, although he is yet to sign it.
The Frenchman recently confirmed he is close to making a decision regarding his future at Arsenal.
