Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez has made it clear that he wants to remain in London next season and boosted Chelse chances to lure him at Stamford Bridge despite interest from Manchester City and Bayern Munich.
Manchester City and Bayern Munich are the two big European clubs pushing hardest to lure the Chilean away from Emirates Stadium.
According to The Independent, Copa America winner is happy with his life in London and it gives Chelsea an advantage in the transfer race.
However, the Gunners will do everything in their power to keep Sanchez at Emirates Stadium or block his move to Premier League rivals.
Arsene Wenger’s side are ready to snub a new big-money move from Manchester City, even though they risk losing Sanchez for free next season.
The 28-year-old’s current contract expires at the end of 2018, and if Gunners fail to tie down him with a new deal, it would be wise decision to cash in on the player.
Antonio Conte is a huge admirer of Chilean superstar and wants to lure him at Stamford Bridge this term.
While the Gunners are still of the belief that South American No.7 could be persuaded to extend his deal, they are braced for his departure and consider a transfer to Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich is more ‘palatable’.
With City set to lodge their official £50m offer within the next week, it will force the Bavarians to step up their interest in order to lure Copa America winner at Allianz Arena.
