Reports in Chile claim Arsenal are about to lose Alexis Sanchez to Manchester City as the star attacker will not renew his current deal at Arsenal.
The Metro reports the 28-year has already told Arsenal he wants out of the Emirate Stadium and they should sell him this summer but his words have fallen on deaf ears with Wenger insisting he would rather risk losing him for free next season.
However, free-spending Manchester City are determined to bring Sanchez to the Etihad, where he would enjoy a reunion with his former Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola.
Bayern Munich have also shown interest in the Chilean international but were put off by his huge wage demand of £400k a week.
But Chilean outlet El Mercurio claims the forward has elected to stay in England with City.
A source, reported to be close to Sanchez, told the newspaper: “Not having European competition of the level of the Champions League is significant for Alexis.
“He is motivated by playing in it, and winning it.”
The source added: “Alexis spoke with his Chile team-mates in Russia. He explained the situation to them and he also spoke with his family.
“Everybody came to the same conclusion: that it would be best to end his spell with Arsenal and move to City.”
The source continued: “Alexis is not willing to do that, under any circumstances. His intention is to leave right now.”
