After failing to complete a transfer across the Premier League, Alexis Sanchez remains an Arsenal player. But there's always the January window.
Manchester City tabled a massive £60 million for the Chilean despite the attacker entering his final year of his contract.
The bid was rejected with reports suggesting City will continue their pursuit in the January transfer window. Pep Guardiola is hellbent on reuniting with the player in Manchester who's eyeing up a measly £20 million offer.

But Sanchez still has three potential months at the Emirates before the window reopens. And with the Premier League campaign resuming following the international break, Sanchez received a hostile reception from the home fans.
The 28-year-old was booed on his return as he entered the fray with 15 minutes left, coming on for Olivier Giroud.

Yet Arene Wenger is confident he can win the fans back.
"Alexis Sanchez will win the fans back, and win them back very quickly," he said via Metro.
"We have to accept responses from people. The best way to get them on your side is to perform." Wenger added.
Can Sanchez win the fans back? Or are his days in North London numbered?
