Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez has committed his future to the Gunners after reports in Spain linked Real Madrid with a summer move for the Chilean. The former Barcelona attacker has been in fine form since his arrival at the Emirates Stadium last summer, and has made it clear that he does not intend to leave north London for the foreseeable future.
The Chilean international arrived from the Catalan capital last summer and took to the Premier League like the proverbial duck to water. He scored 25 goals and provided 12 assists in all competitions, playing a key role in helping Arsenal finish third in the league and win the FA Cup for a second consecutive time.
In the 2015/16 campaign Sanchez made a slow start following a hectic schedule which saw him take part and lead his country to their first ever Copa America title in front of their home fans. The former Udinese forward, however, has brushed off the fatigue and shifted gears in recent weeks. He has scored eight goals in his last five games for club and country, including a brace against Manchester United and a goal against Brazil in their 2018 World Cup qualifier clash.
The Gunners attacker's return to form has prompted Spanish magazine Don Balon to claim that the Spanish capital club are readying a £37.3m ($57.7m) to take the former Barcelona forward back to the La Liga. Sanchez, however, has dismissed the reports outright, while admitting that he is 'very happy' with Arsenal and his life in the city of London.
"I have no idea what the media are saying, but I feel comfortable at Arsenal. I'm happy with my team-mates and the city of London is beautiful. I'm not going to change, I'm very happy," the Arsenal forward said after starring for Chile in their wins over Brazil and Peru, as quoted by Goal.com
"I always want to be the best at everything I do. I'm never happy with what I do. I always want to give more. My mum is always my coach. She phones me and tells me to shoot at goal more often," Sanchez added.
