Alexis & Ozil - Its complicated!!!

Posted by THE POLICE 10 months ago · 30 replies

Mesut Ozil & Alexis Sanchez still unhappy with Arsenal contract offers

Surely Ozil & Alexis are not about to jump ship?

Could Arsenal lose Ozil or Sanchez?

Less than two days after Arsenal’s excellent 5-1 win away at West Ham, the Evening Standard have a worrying report, if you are a Gooner.

Incredibly, considering how well run Arsenal are as a club, both Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez have just 18 months left on their current deals at the north London club.

Both Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez are out of contract at Arsenal come the end of the 2017/2018 season.

Ozil & Sanchez want pay parity with Paul Pogba

On Monday morning, well connected Evening Standard reporter James Olley has exclusively reported that talks with both Ozil and Sanchez have stalled on new contracts.

The Arsenal pair want pay parity with the very best earner in the Premier League right now. Manchester United’s Paul Pogba earns 290,000 pounds a week.

Alexis & Ozil

Ozil currently brings in 140,000 pounds every week. Whilst Alexis Sanchez earns 130,000 pounds a week.

Arsene Wenger earns 160,000 pounds a week at Arsenal.

Arsenal offer 200,000 pounds a week

The Standard add that Arsenal have offered their two star players 200,000 pounds a week.

But this is still some way behind Pogba and other well paid Manchester United stars such as Wayne Rooney and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

It looks like Mesut Ozil is much more likely to stay at Arsenal, having bought a house in north London.

But, Ozil gave an interview last week to Marca where he talked about returning to Real Madrid.

Sanchez the likelier to leave

The Evening Standard report that Alexis Sanchez is more likely to leave Arsenal.

In September, the Chilean superstar told Sport: “I have reached a level where I can compete with great players. I do not feel inferior to anybody. I liken [my qualities] to Messi and Ronaldo. I have the same abilities as them.”

Cristiano Ronaldo reportedly earns 365,000 pounds a week at Real Madrid. Whilst Leo Messi is also in contract negotiations with Barcelona.

Arsenal remain hopeful of both Ozil and Sanchez signing new contracts, the way both are playing right now it would be a huge surprise were they not too.

This article from a good source in the Evening Standard, could well be the final negotiating tactic from the two Arsenal stars.

Pogba is hundred percent not overrated. All you have to do is watch him play 90 mins to see how good of a footballer he is, not really his fault that the team around him and his manager is tragic

Alexis Sanchez is a fantastic player but still not even close to the Ronaldo/Messi tier. Very few players are. He is in tier 2 alongside players like Pogba, Aguero, Griezmann, Bale, etc. But if he wants tier 1 money he'll have to play tier 1 football. Meaning minimum 1:1 goals-to-games ratio if playing as a striker, and winning games and perhaps even some trophies singlehandedly.

Agree, there really is no one in the Ronaldo/Messi tier atm. Imo Suarez, Neymar and Bale come next, then Pogba, Aguero, Griezmann etc.

He had only few bright moments with Juventus.. He's definitely an overrated lad, if everything goes well he could be the next Balotelli...

Indeed Pogba is playing with Donkeys around him. He would have been a better fit at AFC.

Well I very much doubt Man Utd would pay €100m for someone who only had a few bright moments with Juventus.

Remember Ferguson forked out £26m on Anderson in 2007???

Pogba is good but of course he's overrated as shit. He's the opposite of Koscielny. Top player but doesn't dab or anything that stupid so he doesn't attract attention and is underrated.

Harry Redknapp feels Arsene Wenger should be looking to pay two key men at the Emirates Stadium division-high wages as they are 'among the best in England'.

He concedes that "bonkers" money will be required to get deals over the line, but acknowledges that Arsenal have more than enough to loosen the purse strings.

Alexis quotes coming out today are very promising. Up to the club now to not let us down for the first time in 3 years

Well he is 100% right about everything, I just don't understand why someone asked Harry Redknapp about it.

because I believe he has all the time in the world to simply sit at home and enjoy watching Arsenal play... :)

Or else he's a voyeur as in Moaninho's words!!!

I feel that Wenger has been the cause of some of our poor form, but it was also the players that go out to play. Ex: Coquelin allowed Robben on his strong foot for the opening goal, Chamberlain gave the ball away for Muller, Sanchez gave the ball away for Robben's? goal, etc.

If we get the players that will change how people look at us, then we can bring back our glory days.
