Alexis Sanchez’s Arsenal future may be in doubt – but he has just shown a clear sign that he still has fond feelings towards the club.
The Gunners star has been strongly linked with a move to Manchester City this summer as he continues to stall over a new contract with the Gunners.
A deal worth a reported £300,000 a week is on the table for the former Barcelona man, but he has yet to sign it and there have been reports he has informed Arsene Wenger of his desire to leave for the Etihad.
The Arsenal boss has denied those claims, however, and insists there is still every chance Sanchez could sign a new deal in north London.
He said: “Nobody knows today if Sanchez will be in the final year of his contract next season because he can extend his contract with us before the start of the season, or during the season.”
Sanchez is not with the Arsenal squad in Australia for the start of their pre-season preparations as he has only just finished playing for Chile at the Confederations Cup.
He has spent the past fortnight on holiday with new girlfriend Mayte Rodriguez and last night he returned to Chile to continue his summer break.
And when he arrived at the airport the 28-year-old gave a clear sign he is still very much tied to Arsenal.
