Report confirms what will happen with Alexis Sanchez at Arsenal
Alexis Sanchez is ready to accept Arsenal's stance and see out the remaining year of his contract
Alexis Sanchez is prepared to accept Arsenal’s stance and see out the remaining year of his contract before leaving on a free transfer next summer, according to reports in the British media.
The Daily Mirror is claiming that the Chile international is prepared to accept that Arsenal do not want to sell him this summer, but that he is ready to leave the club at the end of this season.
Arsenal are reported to have made it clear that they have no intention of selling Sanchez to another Premier League rival, while Paris Saint-Germain’s world-record purchase of Neymar appears to have ended talk of a move to Ligue 1.
The same report claims that Bayern Munich were put off by Sanchez’s wage demands of £400,000 a week and that the South American is now ready to stay at Arsenal beyond the summer.
Sanchez was pictured celebrating with his team-mates as Arsenal beat Chelsea on penalties to win the Community Shield at Wembley on Sunday afternoon.
Arsenal, who finished fifth last season, are now turning their attentions towards their Premier League opener against Leicester City at The Emirates on Friday night as they look to kick off their campaign with three points.
