Arsenal legend Paul Merson reckons Arsenal would allow Alexis Sanchez to join Paris Saint-Germain tomorrow if it prevented him joining Manchester City.
Sanchez’ Arsenal exit has been one of the most talked about transfer news this summer with the 28-year-old entering the final year of his contract at the Emirates. And Merson thinks Arsenal would let Sanchez join PSG had there been real interest from the French moneybags.
“Arsenal would let Sanchez go to PSG tomorrow,” Merson told Sky Sports.
“The biggest worry is Manchester City and that’s the problem.
“If he went to City there would be uproar from the Arsenal fans. They would look at it and ask why the club are selling him to a Premier League rival.
“If he goes to PSG he’s out of sight, out of mind. He’s not going to come back and hurt you.
“However, it’s the Man City situation that’s the concern and we’ve seen it all before with Robin van Persie’s move to Manchester United.”
