    If they wanted to keep him now & expected him to do his job, then the solution would have been, to immediately tell City to fuck off & that's that til summer.

    If they have entered into negotiations, then they have to see it through. They can't expect Sanchez to just lie back & take it if they mess him around now.

    I don't think the implication is that Sanchez will be finished mentally due to going through two failed transfer negotiations, but what harm staying might do to Arsenal.

    I think Wenger knew he was going to likely have to sell this window, he was just being stubborn to make a point about players who do this and believed he could still maintain Arsenal's performance levels enough this season with and without Sanchez.

    He doesn't want to stay at the club and the clubs ambition might be only a part of it.

    They are better off letting him go in January as we will offer them a fee that for a player with 6 months to run on his contract and can sign up for free in the summer with whomever which he will do anyway is in their best interests.

    Once a player wants out its best to cut ties with him even if he is still playing good football.

    The relationship with the other players while important is not as vital as to whether the player wants to stay at the club or not.

    We see it time and again and Wenger has been around long enough to know when its time to move on a player.

    Things won't get better at Arsenal on the field until the owners and Wenger move on.

    A club hoping to be word's best had better believe that they never have enough.

    Your rivals are right behind you. Improve each season or very likely fail to achieve as much as you would have if you'd upgraded your players.
    =====
    As far as City goes, the quintessential manifestation of failure to improve leading to reduced performance is likely Mancini's last with us. Our marquee signings that season were:

    Javi García
    Matija Nastasic
    Jack Rodwell
    Scott Sinclair
    Maicon

    none of whom are still in our side, whereas Mancini was pressing management for major upgrades wanting:

    RvP
    Ibra
    T. Silva

    Exactly. Also could of had Sanchez, or Hazard if we’d paid the agents fee.
    Doesn’t even need to be expensive. Goretzka and Can are available on a free. Gimenez is available on a free. We make no money selling players so might as I don’t know why we don’t go for quality young players when their contracts are dying down.

    Griezmann (£88m) for Aguero (£60m).
    Bernard to join on a free.
    Fred (£45m) for Yaya. (£0m)
    Tah (£30m) for Kompany. (?)
    Hernandez (£45m) for Mangala (£15m).
    Maffeo (£0) for Danilo (£15m).
    In - £208m
    Out - £90m
    Net - £122m

    16 foreign spots with someone possibly for LB but would have no issue with Delph as back-up.

    The unfortunate thing is City haven’t really been interested in Tah since scouting him intensively during his Hamburg days because of his injury record.

    LB, CB and cover for Dinho are the priorities.
