Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez will join Real Madrid if he is assured a spot in Zinedine Zidane’s side over Karim Benzema, reports say

Arsenal nearly lost Sanchez in the summer with Manchester City close to signing the Chile international on transfer deadline day.

However, the Gunners’ failure to convince Monaco winger Thomas Lemar to sign on as his replacement ultimately saw Sanchez stay put.

Despite that, it still looks as if he will leave with his contract expiring in July – meaning he is free to negotiate with foreign clubs in January.

And Spanish outlet Don Balon say that, despite City’s interest, Sanchez is actually in favour of a return to Spain with Real Madrid.

And Spanish outlet Don Balon say that, despite City’s interest, Sanchez is actually in favour of a return to Spain with Real Madrid.

And that is despite the fact he previously played for their fierce rivals Barcelona.

However, much may depend on what role he is assured of.

Zidane is known to favour just one No9 and, more often than not, that man is Karim Benzema.

Benzema’s form has waned considerably in recent years but still Zidane picks him – something that led Morata to join Chelsea.

And Sanchez will supposedly only join if he is assured he will be above the France international in the pecking order.
