The January transfer window looks to be one of the most needless and panicking windows in the world of football. Although, it is not without a hitch in the team’s driving mechanics, a compromising way through gluttonism to bud the strength defensively, attacking-wise. We might consider the struggling sides that are desperately doing all things to avoid the drop; the bigger teams are just trying to build more, making it a shameless intimidation because the finances are available to get players of top class and quality. This is a recurring situation and we might not see desolation to this set up.

Arsenal and Manchester would be hoping to do business for the umpteenth time as they hope to complete the Alexis Sanchez to United and Mkhitaryan to Emirates deal. We have seen the two teams moving for their players with the likes of Andy Cole, Mikael Silvestre, Robin Van Persie, Danny Welbeck having featured for both teams despite the rivalry. A valid memory from the RVP move to Manchester United few years ago made Wenger swore never to see him sell his players to his domestic rivals. This is actually going to resurface as the two teams are ready to swap probably one of their top quality stars. Arsenal fans’ growing impatience with Wenger and his policies have been the major reason behind their fall from grace to grass in recent years. The gunners cannot wait for Wenger to use the exit door. Wenger keeps selling best players to United. RVP’s move to United that season made United clinch their 20th premier league title.

Alexis Sanchez has been looking quite shabby this season. His body language and commitment this season has been put to question as his output cannot be compared to the previous season. Regardless of him running out of contract in the summer, he still felt the need to abort ship earlier. Has Sanchez fallen out of love with Wenger and the incompetent board? Remember, Arsenal was a place of succor for Alexis when Barcelona dumped him on the bench.

Mkhitaryan would be the most beneficial of this deal as Mourinho has grown rather less fond of the Albanian despite starting the season strongly. He would be hoping to see his redemption and regular games at Arsenal.
