Reading that Arsenal would be willing to sell
Sanchez to City for 80 million. Now I understand that's a rumour but at the end of the day Arsenal seem to be getting it.
He's one of the Premier Leagues best players so looking around at what some of the players have been sold for I would say
80 million is a good starting point although I would rather him go abroad. But probably Arsenal have slapped this price tag on him to put off potential buyers. What do you say Ed? .

{Ed001's Note - there is no good price for selling your best player when you are looking to improve, unless you have a potentially better player waiting to take his place. Otherwise, you are not doing anything bar going backwards.}

Agree1 Disagree1

Can't argue with that. That's why I said ages ago are we
replacing or improving? . I'm being a bit flippant there as you probably well know and I agree with you there is no good price for selling your best player. This is why I say we riode our luck last season. and it's come round to bite us .
It was quite rightly said it's like "trying to bolt the stable door after the horse has bolted".

I think it's possible to lose your best player and use the money to make your team better, I'm not saying that's what will happen at Arsenal but it has and can be done else where so if is possible for us too.
Southampton in Keomans first season lost how many of their best players and went from strength to strength.

We are on a roll I agree with you too. We must be mellowing, lol.

Sanchez is a great player - was he a winger or a striker?

I wish he would stay and partner Lacazette but he won't plus I don't think he holds his position enough.

We can improve and getting 80m gives us the resource to help improve.

We just got to get the players in and the right players to match our strategy

Lemar, Mbappe and Lacazette in = improvement even with no Sanchez

Lacazette only = improved goal scoring but a step backwards if Sanchez leaves.

I like to thank of it as our own personal summer of love Welsh mate 🌼.

Some good points SY4.
But if Sanchez stays is it to play for Arsenal or for the money.
He is one player, Arsene, the club, the fans made him from a Barcelona bench warmer to the player he is.
He wants to leave. I think we have three options
1 Sell him for as much as we can
2 Pay him the crazy amount
3 Run his contract down on the bench
For me option 3
If we pay him, every players agent will be knocking the door down.
Do we all really think he is worth it £400k it takes me years to earn that, not weeks or months, YEARS
We are a team, the best team wins the league.
Some will say selling your best players will weaken the team, yes, I agree, but I think he wants to go, So sell him and buy this Lemar (i know very little about him but a few of you he seem to like him)

Sanchez for me has been our best post invincibles signing and it will be a shame to see him leave but it's almost certain he will leave.
Did Utd want to lose Ranaldo to Real? Absolutely not but they did and just carried on winning things without him and for all Sanchez fantastic qualities he isn't Ranaldo.
It's not about what happens it's about how you react to what happens that decides whether you go to bits or from also rans to contenders.
Just my view but if he goes don't get angry get better without him.

Spot on G62.

09 Jul 2017 10:42:04
62 - that's been my point all along as I think if we react right, we can be a stronger team. If you take Sanchez's desire away as he falls out of love with AFC - what you got. He's a heart on your sleeve guy and I don't want a watered down Sanchez.
Take the 80m and invest well.
Shame really as will miss his energy, pace and special qualities.

Selling your best players is not a show of strength, its a weakness. Especially to a rival. If we do it we will get what we deserve. The same way as, if you keep doing the same things, you get the same results. Ambitous clubs do not sell their best players, the keep them and add to them. Have we ever replaced vierra, no, have we ever replaced adams, no, have we ever replaced cole no. Did we benefit from selling rvp to man u, no. You don't let your best players go, unless you don't want to win anything. Sanchez was an 8 or 9 out of 10 last season, nearly every game. The nearest player to him over the sesson was probably a 6. I don't see how anyone can advocate selling your best player and keep your average players, unless you want average results. Sanchezs position and ozils come to that ( our second best player ) are down to the manager and the club. Disgraceful.

Ultimately lads it's all about Arsenal for us and we shouldn't get preoccupied with any one player or any one opponent.
If Sanchez makes City of whoever stronger then that will hurt Chelsea Utd Liverpool Spurs and the other 19 premier league teams just as much as it will us.
Let everyone else worry about themselves and we should do exactly the same.
