That is the damning verdict of Robbie Savage.
Sanchez, who’s out of contract on the finish of the season, is broadly anticipated to go away the Emirates and a deal may occur this month.
Manchester United may signal him within the January switch window with Manchester City pulling out after no longer assembly Arsenal’s £35million asking value.
In the previous, the Gunners offered the likes of Robin van Persie and Cesc Fabregas to United and Barcelona respectively.
And Savage thinks the Sanchez state of affairs harks again to a depressing time for the Gunners.
When requested for his ideas on Sanchez’s subsequent attainable move, Savage advised the Daily Mirror: “Sanchez will both be signing as much as a fistful of medals at Etihad or most sensible of the invoice at Old Trafford.
“Poor previous Arsenal. After Cesc Fabregas and Robin van Persie, it looks as if they’re going again to the dangerous previous days of marketing their best possible participant.
“Why on earth they allowed Sanchez to run his contract into the its closing 12 months with out shifting the earth to stay him a lot faster is any other tale.
“But you’ll be able to’t blame City or United for short of to poach probably the most Premier League’s most fun skills from a significant rival.
“Especially if they are able to get him for peanuts – and in as of late’s cash, round £30m for Sanchez is an absolute thieve.
“For what it’s price, I consider Sanchez will signal for City.”
Sanchez, who was once dropped for the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg towards Chelsea, may go back to the beginning line-up towards Bournemouth day after today (1.30pm).
