Arsenal’s players are unhappy with the club’s decision to sell Alexis Sanchez to Manchester United, according to reports.
United won the race to sign the Chile international during the January transfer window after agreeing a swap deal which saw Henrikh Mkhitaryan join Arsenal.
Sanchez has struggled to reach his best form since making the move to Jose Mourinho’s side, while towards the end of his time at Arsenal, the 29-year-old was failing to make an impact under Arsene Wenger.
Sanchez was also involved in several bust-ups with his Arsenal teammates. One incident last season even saw Laurent Koscielny confront the forward during a training session.
But ESPN claim that Arsenal’s senior players are unhappy with Sanchez’s exit to United as they believe the transfer has sent out the wrong message.
‘The players don’t want any particular manager to come in — some speak about Thierry Henry, Carlo Ancelotti and even Rafa Benitez – but they are really frustrated,’ a source close to a senior Arsenal player told ESPN.
‘A lot of them are also unhappy about the sale of Alexis Sanchez to Manchester United.
‘Alexis could be difficult at times, but the players think it sent the wrong message to sell him to a rival.’
