Following last week’s transfer debacle, it looks like there may be more negative Sanchez related news.
According to The Metro, Manchester City apparently failed with a very late bid to sign the Chilean last Thursday on deadline day and it looks like he will now remain at The Emirates until the end of the season, where it appears he’ll move on for nothing next summer as there appears to be no contract extension in sight. Several other Arsenal players find themselves in the same position meaning we could be in a very serious mess (even bigger than we’re in currently) come next summer, unless some new deals are signed soon.
Anyway, NBC are reporting that our very own Chilean has picked up an ankle injury in training and could miss the World Cup qualifier in Bolivia, as he was apparently seen limping off with an ice pack and is already a doubt for the game.
Chile are set to play their South American rivals on Tuesday as they look to qualify for the World Cup. With three games remaining including this week’s game, Chile are 4th in their group with Ecuador at home on the 5th October and then a nice easy clash against Brazil on the 10th of October, still to play. Let’s hope Sanchez’ knock isn’t too bad, he’ll shake it off and play in the game like he usually does.
In other news, Krystian Bielik is out until December after having shoulder surgery. Bielik was set for a loan deal last week, but will now be out of action until December according to the IB Times.
After an excruciatingly long interlull, we find ourselves back in Premier League action this weekend at home to Bournemouth, where Arsene Wenger will be praying everyone comes back fit and we can pick up another three points to double our tally and save our poor start to the season.
