The Gunners legend Marc Overmars has come out to say that Manchester United Alexis Sanchez could make a controversial return to former club Arsenal after an unimpressive campaign at the club.
The Chilean was brought to the club by former Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho, but due to poor stats from the player it became increasingly difficult for him to feature in games, he feel out of the favor of the manager, it was also rumored that Alexis Sanchez placed a bet with fellow united player for the Sack of Jose Mourinho.
Similarly it has become a difficult circumstance for him even with the prescence of United new boss Ole Gunnasolskjaer, Alexis Sanchez has failed to replicate his form Arsenal form in United.
However,Overmars .currently Ajax’s director of football, when speaking with AND Deportes said,
“I have great respect for Alexis because he did extreme well in Arsenal, i don’t know if it was a good decision to leave.
“English football changes you, it turns you around, it took me a step forward. Arsene Wenger arrived a year before me, Dennis Bergkamp made a big impression in England, it was a fantastic time, i think we Changed the history of the club a bit”.
United may be eager to offload Sanchez, with the players exorbitant wages restricting the club’s capabilities in the transfer market.
Over Mars, who has been touted to return to Arsenal as part of the hierarchy after the departures of Ivan Gazidis and Sven Milslintat, added:
“This type of player was very important for Arsenal because that’s where they take you.
“After Alexis, Arsenal tried to sign another player like that but he was not given, so Alexis could go back to Arsenal.
