Arsenal transfer news: Alexis Sanchez to Bayern Munich, Manchester City latest

ALEXIS Sanchez has told Chilean media that he wants to play in
the Champions League and a decision over his future rests with
Arsenal.

The 28-year-old’s future has been in doubt, with Manchester
City and Bayern Munich keen to sign him this summer while
discussions over a new Arsenal contract have become protracted.

Manager Arsene Wenger believes Sanchez will stay and said on
Saturday he had held “positive” talks with the player, who is
currently in his hometown of Tocopilla in Chile on his
post-season holiday, via text message.

But Sanchez has been quoted by Chile’s Radio Sport
stating: “I have made my decision, but now the decision has to
be taken by Arsenal.

“It depends on them. I have to wait to know what they want. My
idea is to play and win the Champions League. It’s a dream I
have had since I was little.”

Sanchez had an extended season playing for Chile at the
Confederations Cup and has not yet returned to Arsenal’s
pre-season programme, which is currently in Australia as part
of a Far-East tour.

After the Gunners beat Western Sydney Wanderers on Saturday,
Wenger said: “Of course (he will stay). There is not a lot to
resolve with the player. I have spoken through text and it was
very positive. My thoughts are always positive.”

Wenger also said he believes Jack Wilshere, who spent last
season on loan at Bournemouth, will remain an Arsenal player
next season, despite interest from Sampdoria among others,
according to Sky in Italy.

“I think Jack will be with Arsenal next season, yes,” Wenger
said. “I will give you a very focused answer on that; that he
has to work hard to come back and fight for a place in the
team.

“But once he is ready, when he comes back, he will not be far
from practising with the team.”
