Ray Parlour isn’t best pleased by the thought of Alexis Sanchez in a Manchester United shirt.
With Alexis Sanchez apparently on his way out, Manchester United are one of the clubs that are reportedly interested in his services.
The Chilean is also a target for Manchester City and Chelsea. Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich, who reportedly hold the upper hand and are considered favourites, are also on the hunt.
When approached by talkSPORT about the possibility of Alexis moving to Old Trafford, Parlour was annoyed. “I would hope not (to see him in a Man United shirt),” he said.
“I really hope that he does stay. He’s such an important player and you don’t want to be losing your best players, he’s certainly been the best player this year by a mile.”
“His wages shouldn’t be a problem for Arsenal, they’ve got money in the bank and you can’t afford to lose your best players.”
“If you want to try and attract other players into the club, you’ve got to say ‘Sanchez has just signed a new four-year contract’ and that might attract other players to come in as well.”
“There’s some big, big decisions Arsenal need to make over the next few weeks, especially after the cup final.”
“I’m sure there will be a decision very much straight away after the cup final from Arsene Wenger and then we can look to next season.”
In addition Parlour also commented on other clubs.
“If you look at the top, top stars they want to be playing Champions League football. Simple.”
“Now teams like Liverpool, Manchester United obviously if they win the Europa League, will all be able to attract big players going forward.”
“Let’s see what happens with Sanchez, let’s see what happens with (Mesut) Ozil.”
“Sanchez may say ‘listen, I need to play Champions League football. I’m going to have to leave the club’.”
The result of the FA Cup final against Chelsea will allow proper judgement on Arsene Wenger and his players this season.
If Wenger fails to win, it will be his worst season since he took over 20 years ago, and with fans becoming increasingly annoyed by his style and inability to win major trophies, it looks like an era is coming to it’s end. Or, at the very least, it should be.
