We could have got at least 40m for him in the last window and along with the money we got for Chamberlain we could have easily bought a top quality player.
He is clearly leaving this season and we have no chance of getting, or even attracting, a player of a similar quality.
I don’t understand what Wenger was thinking when he decided not buy a striker, in the seasons before we got Lacazette, or at least another world class player to play alongside Sanchez to show him we wanted to match his ambitions.
As @arsenescoatmaker says, Sanchez might as well see out the remaining games of this season and get the 30m we would have got for him, himself.
The naivety of Wenger in this, and Ozil’s situation, is staggering.
Thinking they would sign new contracts even though we are a team in stagnation and without any perceivable ambition.
From someone who claims to be an economics expert, his transfer strategy and approach to strengthening the squad, is an absolute shamble.
I don’t blame Sanchez in any of this.
If he makes 20-30m out of it for himself and goes to Man City, Chelsea or Man U, then Wenger will be responsible.
The only thing that is certain is that he and Ozil won’t be here next season and they won’t be replaced by anywhere near the quality playesr they are.
