Speaking to the media during a promotional event in Chile about his contract with the north London club, Sanchez discussed his future plans.
“I’m happy in London and I want to finish my contract. That’s what I want. I like to stay in one place, one city, where the team fights for titles,” Sanchez is quoted as saying by The Guardian.
