Alexis Sanchez has revealed that he has made a decision over his Arsenal future – but is still staying coy on when it will be revealed.
The Gunners forward has been linked with a move away from the Emirates Stadium thoughout the summer having only one year left to run on his contract with the club.
The 28-year-old is currently away in Chile as he enjoys an extended break following his Confederations Cup action – and he has spoken to local media whilst he is out there.
In one interview, Sanchez revealed that he has indeed made a decision over his Arsenal future.
Arseblog News (who credited a reader called Gerardo for the translation) have published the full transcript of exactly what Alexis Sanchez has said to the local media in Chile – which you can find below:
Alexis: The truth is that the decision doesn’t depend on me. My decision has been made,
but now we wait for a response from Arsenal. It depends on them, on what they want.
Reporter: And what decision is that?
Alexis: Hijole [that’s a word something like the English expression: “man…”], I would say play Champions [league] and win it, it’s a dream that I have since I was little.
Reporter: In that sense, are you motivated to stay at Arsenal? Or would you prefer being with Claudia Bravo, Manchester City, and also with Pep Guardiola?
Alexis: The truth is that for now I’m at Arsenal … [the interview changes frame and then starts again] … I end my contract in one more year…[at this moment in the interview people from the background starts singing his name, not related to his answer,
he smiles and then he continues with something not even related to the question] … and nothing really, very happy for the people.
