Sanchez hints at Chelsea move

Alexis Sanchez fuels speculations over Chelsea switch

Arsenal striker, Alexis Sanchez has hinted at himself actually making a move to London rivals, Chelsea in the nearest future.

The Chilean international has, however, disclosed that he plans to see out the remainder of his Arsenal deal.

But Sanchez has gone on to say that he would then like to join a London-based club with a “winning mentality”.

These comments have come in the wake of reports linking Chelsea with a surprise raid on Sanchez.

Meanwhile, the former Barcelona forward will run out of contract at the Emirates Stadium at the end of next season.

Arsenal are known to be reluctant to sell their star striker for anything less than £50m.

And now, the Gunners may be unwilling to sell to a direct rival at any amount, whatsoever.

Meanwhile, there have been reports that Bayern Munich are also keen on making a bid for Sanchez during the summer.

Sanchez has admitted that he would like to remain in the English capital for the long term, though that could potentially mean leaving for Chelsea on a free contract in 15 months’ time.

“I am happy in London and hope to finish my contract there,” Sanchez disclosed to Publimetro.

“I’d like to stay in the city but with a team that is winning things, that has a winning mentality.

“I am 28, I still have a lot of years ahead of me, I’m a player who looks after himself.” Sanchez summed up.

Meanwhile, Sanchez has so far hit the net 18 times for Arsenal in the Premier League during this very season.

Despite that, though, Sanchez has grown increasingly frustrated in recent weeks.

This has led to rumours that Sanchez is deliberately stalling on agreeing a new deal to force a move away.

Sanchez is Chile´s joint-highest goalscorer

Alexis Sanchez celebrates scoring Chile´s first goal against Venezuela

Arsenal forward, Alexis Sanchez is now the joint-highest goalscorer for his country, Chile.

The energetic player was quite spectacular as the current Copa American champions defeated Venezuela 3-1 in CONMEBOL World Cup qualifying.

Sanchez scored a stunning free-kick to move alongside Marcelo Salas as Chile’s joint-top goalscorer.

Meanwhile, that was his 37th overall goal for Chile against Venezuela in Santiago on Tuesday night.

However, Sanchez was not so lucky from the penalty spot with 12 minutes remaining in the game.

Chile’s fourth straight qualifying victory at home moved them up to the fourth position on the table after 14 matches.
