Alexis Sanchez & Man City
The latest update has been provided by Alexis’s international team mate Mauricio Isla.
Isla has spoken to local news outlet SoyChile, and he’s made it perfectly clear that Sanchez is gutted to still be an Arsenal player. He said:
Alexis is at a top club like Arsenal but he was very happy to move on to another big club (Man City).
After the news came and he was not able to sign the contract, Alexis felt sad and surely that affected him.
The transfer was very important to him but it did not happen.
Alexis Sanchez on social media
At the same time, Alexis Sanchez has taken to social media to try to convince Arsenal fans he’s still on board with the club.
This weekend Arsenal take on Bournemouth at the Emirates Stadium.
Arsenal come into the game on the back of a 1-0 defeat at Stoke, followed by a humiliating 4-0 defeat away at Liverpool.
Ahead of the match against the Cherries, Sanchez has posted the following on Instagram.
It’s also been a tragic international break for Chile and Alexis Sanchez.
Chile slumped to a shock 3-0 defeat at home to Paraguay last week, and on Tuesday night they lost 1-0 away at Bolivia.
Those back to back defeats have seen Chile drop to sixth in the South American qualifiers. Currently they are out of the picture to qualify for Russia 2018.
