Alexis Sanchez Escape Route – Real Madrid to the Rescue
The Alexis Sanchez transfer saga gets a new twist in the tale and this time the potential suitors might be a club away from the Premier League. It is being speculated that the European champions Real Madrid are looking to make a bid for the Chilean star striker, who was once a part of their arch-rivals Barcelona.
The 28-year-old has been linked with a number of clubs from the Premier League including the likes of Manchester City and Chelsea over the last couple of months. Speculations are also rife that the Arsenal striker might be moving to the German champions Bayern Munich in the summer. Now that the reigning Champions League winners Real Madrid have reportedly entered the race, it is going to be really exciting to see the end of this story, with less than two weeks left to the closure of the transfer window.
The Galacticos had to let go of their Spanish starlet Alvaro Morata in the summer who went onto join Chelsea this summer, making Los Blancos look for a good enough player who will be able to replace him in their lineup for the next term. In the present situation, there is a strong chance that they might go in with a bid to land the Chilean international at Santiago Bernabeu to strengthen their attack for the new season.
The brilliant forward is termed as one of Europe’s best and has been an integral part of his current club Arsenal. He arrived at the club in the year 2014 and has been one of the mainstays in the attack for the Gunners. However, he declined the offer to sign a new contract with the club, with the possibility of making it out of the Emirates Stadium in the summer with only one more year left on his contract.
Sanchez can play as the lone striker and also has the ability to play as a winger, assisting the main man to get goals for the team. He is a prolific scorer from both long and short-range, whether in open play or from set piece situations. His physical presence in the rival territory is an ominous threat to the opposition, as his thumping header can hit the back of the net with enough power to get the better of even the best of shot-stoppers.
The inclusion of such an incredible player can be a good one for the Galacticos and a move for the Chilean looks to be on the cards with the days to the closure of the transfer window being numbered.
