Sanchez wants to quit the Emirates but his representative Fernando Felicevich is eager for him to see out his deal

Alexis Sanchez is at odds with his agent over his Arsenal future.

Sanchez wants to quit the Emirates to improve his chances of landing some major honours.

But his representative Fernando Felicevich is urging him to see out the remaining 11 months of his Gunners contract before leaving on a lucrative Bosman next summer.

Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain are desperate to sign Sanchez and the Blues are prepared to make the Chilean their best-paid player ever to reunite him with his former Barcelonaboss Pep Guardiola.

As huge as these offers from City and PSG are, Felicevich feels they would be even bigger next season when Sanchez would be a free agent.

The Chilean, who is one of South America’s leading agents, believes Sanchez would have his pick of the world’s top clubs next summer when Arsenal are making life so difficult now.

Although Sanchez regards Felicevich as a father figure and is close to him, he would prefer to go now.

Sanchez turns 29 in December and is conscious that he has only won one La Liga with Barcelona and two FA Cups with Arsenal in his career and is desperate to lift the Champions League.

There is no chance of that happening this season after Arsenal missed out on qualifying for the first time under Arsene Wenger and he feels the clock is ticking on his career.

Arsenal and Wenger are adamant Sanchez will not leave and have urged him to accept their £275,000-a-week contract offer to becomes their highest-paid player.
