Legend Warns Star Player About Joining Chelsea





Chelsea legend Ray Wilkins has urged Alexis Sanchez to commit his future to Arsenal.

The Chilean forward is currently stalling on renewing his contract with the Gunners despite just having around 18 months left which has sparked speculations that he might be moving to Premier league rivals, Chelsea but Wilkins has urged him to stay at the Emirates.

“He’s probably earning enough now for his life. He’s not going to be able to spend all the money he has earned already one would have thought.

“He’s been at Barcelona, he’s been at Arsenal for the last two or three years therefore he has been well paid in that period. There’s no question about it, he is an outstanding footballer.

“At Chelsea, we lost Ramires to China at 28 years of age. The money was so important for him. You have to remember, these South American guys, where they come from is an impoverished background and they think they have to accumulate as much as they possibly can by the time their career is over.

“I thought Ramires leaving was a massive mistake and I think for Sanchez to go there would be a massive mistake. He can earn enough at Arsenal and I sincerely hope he stays in the Premier League because he is a joy to watch.”

Arsene Wenger has also refuted claims that Arsenal may cash in on the 27-year-old forward if he continues to stall on renewing his contract at the Emirates, hinting they will stay put for the next 18 months and risk them leaving for free.
