Gunners boss, Arsene Wenger, has always insisted that he has no plans to sell the 28-year-old and made it clear that he has the board’s backing.
According to MirrorSport, Sanchez is now dropping hints to his team-mates and friends that he is now resigned to staying. The Chile international will now leave as a free agent at the end of the season, when he is likely to get an even more lucrative contract.
Paris Saint Germain’s record-breaking £200m move for Neymar appears to have ended the French club’s realistic chance of getting Sanchez.
And Wenger has vowed never to strengthen a Premier League rival, effectively ruling Manchester City out as an option.
Bayern Munich were keen but were put off by Sanchez’s demands as his advisers have been asking for £400,000-a-week.
