According to reports in Spain, Real Madrid have rejected the chance of signing Alexis Sanchez.
OK Diario (via talksport) confirm that the Merengues were offered the Chilean international, who wants to play Champions League football, this summer.
Sanchez has been linked away from the Emirate Stadium this summer with Bayern Munich, Manchester City and Real Madrid have all been linked with South America hitman.
The former Barcelona man joined Arsenal for € 42.5 million three seasons ago, and is coming off a 24-goal Premier League campaign.
Agent Fernando Felicevic contacted the Merengues, but was told that they weren’t willing to replace anyone from the BBC, or indeed sell any of their magic trio.
They also claimed that Zinedine Zidane’s side didn’t want any characters, with Alexis’ benching against Bayern seen as a result of poor effort in training. Beyond that, the Chilean is said to have been given a talking-to by some of his team-mates.
