The Times reports today that both the clubs are in advanced negotiations, with Arsenal discussing about the payment schedule for Sanchez. His agent will hold talks in London in the coming days while the player is expected to double the £75,000 a week he earns at the Catalan club. 

Catalan newspaper Sport however feels that a deal between the club has already been agreed and the only thing left is the official documents to be signed.

Sanchez doesn’t feature in Luis Enrique’s plans for next season and therefore wanted to move elsewhere to further his career. He apporached Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas, who joined the Blues this summer, for an advice regarding this move, where the former Gunner skipper told him favorable things about Arsenal, which helped him make this decision. Also, Wenger convinced him to join in a secret meeting in Brazil.

  1. Good Business, but also get Aurier, to Challenge Debuchy at the right back. Then get Sami Khedira and keep Campbell at the club and send Sanogo on loan.

  2. Fabregas has always been a gooner en he will at all times be wishing Arsenal well.We rise up for Fb.

    • Yeah… Except when he turns up to win with his new team. I don’t think their will be any conflict of interests on his part, so please refrain from riding his n*ts any further. Thank you for your cooperation.

    • It was definitely Cesc influenced. They are both in London and can hang out. Cesc will show him London.
      Wengar has great links because he respects all the people he deals with even Bentnar. Nobody has a bad word to say about Wengar.

  3. Arsenal blood still runs in his vein, well done cecs

  4. We have send a clear signal that we will be a team to beat in the impending season.Signing Alexis Sanchez will convince other high profile targets to see need in joining the most sexiest footballing club in the world that is Arsenal.Kudos Arsene .

    • Young Man: do u undstnd English @all. Ur words has not definite meaning. I beg no fall d hands of handsome $ intelligent arsenal fans ooo

  7. The Frabegas dat arsenal nd arsenal fans burn his clothe nd banner ave help them nw to sign a play sanchez

  8. Nwuruku Samson,are you sure Arsenal really burnt his Jersy & banner ? I thought it was a rumour.What happened to the players Arsenal bought from other clubs?Was there any agreement reached with former gunner’s players not to join EPL of their own choice?Don’t you think it’s obnoxious decision to do that ?l felt Arsenal Mgt/fans should ponder a while on these questions.

  9. Sanchez will be a great signing.

  10. sanchez is a great signing but we stil have to look for a number 6 cz arteta is now wornout

  11. That’s fabregas for all arsenal fans around the globe for advicing Sanchez to move to the emirate nice deal wenger

  12. I believe that the one thing that stopped Cesc coming back home was Wenger. Cesc was class and available to us at a bargain price. The deal would have been all plusses and no negatives. Will we ever learn what Wenger’s reasoning was?

    • Fabregas has already publicly stated that Wenger declined to sign him because his position was already filled by Ozil.

  13. he’s still a cnut as far as i’m concerned

  14. Whether at Chelsea or else where, i always love Fabregas, he has Arsenal in his DNA thank you Csec, you are a legend

  15. Cesc u are and always you will be arsenal legend. Tnks for convincing our in coming striker Alexis to join arsenal. Cannot wait to see him in our jersey. Welcome to arsenal Alexis

  16. And he knows we love him too.He ‘s reciprocating.

  17. he’s a cool minded player no matter where he go he’s outstanding

  18. If cesc fabregas can do such a thing for arsenal it’s good becouse he doesn’t want to quit the emirates stadium if not because of not winnig trophy.

  19. Every player is free 2 which ever taem he likes, weather arsenal blood is running in his vein or not, he like chelsea and wanted to left trophies, trophyless.(trophy haram arsenal) blues 4 life.

  20. As an Arsenal die-hard, loved Cesc. Even wen he left for barcalona. Now he shudn’t expect mo from us fans because he has teamed up wif Jose the man he ‘once’ hated, and team he despised so mch. He’s lost respect and love from ME. Sanches was coming anyway, with or without his help

  21. He has been loyal to the club, even when he’s not in the unit, his spirit stayed with us

  22. sanchez is a good player indeed.

  23. Arsenal should please sign sanchez to make there forward be good next. Season and signs debuchy for defens and cesc fabregas and bender that will. Make gooners good next season

  24. Wenger would have sign Fabregas but there will be problem in our mild field. I respect the great coach as he reject him coming back to arsenal.

  25. I Love Arsenal! I Love Fabregas!! And I Love Wenger!!!
