Should I sell Sanchez in January or keep him and see if I can persuade him to stay? (5 votes)
Arsenal has been struggling lately. They missed out on Champions League this year, and 2 of their best and most valuable players are going out for free. I'd rather not see Özil and Sanchez go anywhere, where most fans has already written Sanchez off.

In the first week after "Wenger Out" apparently worked, and I was put in charge. I assessed the players contracts, and quickly signed Ozil for another 4 years.

Sanchez on the other hand is still unsatisfied, and wants to leave the club by the end of the contract.
My goal, if at all possible, is to sugar talk him in to a new contract. I make sure to praise him after every game, and our bond is already strengthening. The good results in the league as well as cups & Europa League.

The transferwindow was busy, as I was trying to establish a new and fresh team, around Lacazette, Ozil and Sanchez.

This resulted in selling: Elneny & Coquelin adding to the 80€ million transfer budget.

After selling 2 midfielders and Cazorla out for months, I needed a fresh face. I quickly acquired Radja Nainggolan for around 44€ making him one of my best midfielders playing alongside Xhaka.
Xhaka apparently got upset, as he thought I was trying to take his position away from him, and resulted in some unsatisfied players. Though, I am quickly getting them back on track again, by giving Xhaka some first team matches.

Furthermore, I needed a new centerback. I was scouting for weeks until I stumbled upon Javi Martinez from Bayern. 2 days later, deal done. 61€ million and a good centerback was mine.

So far, I have played 3 PL games, winning them all (YAY!). The first 2 games against Swansea and Stoke where tough. both ended in a close 2-1 result my way.

The third game was against Manchester City, the potential new club for my man Sanchez.
City was favorites, but my players took over of the game early with approx. 60/40 possesion and a quick goal from Ozil, showing that a new contract was worth it. Next to goals came in the middle of the match from Lacazette and Sanchez.

The game really showed a strong Arsenal team, and I am keen to keep the morale up, as it is the only way I see Sanchez staying.

Next up in my career is a lot of PL matches, and finally deciding if I should sell Sanchez in the January transfer window.

What do you think?
