Alexis Sanchez has threatened to never pull on an Arsenal shirt ever again after a deadline day move to Manchester City fell through, according to reports.
City reportedly agreed a fee for the Chilean forward on deadline day with the Gunners closing in on his £92million replacement Thomas Lemar from Monaco.
However, Lemar is understood to have snubbed Arsenal in favour of a move to Liverpool – who didn’t sign the France international either.
Subsequently the collapse of the deal to sign Lemar meant that Sanchez’s reported transfer to City also fell through.
And Goal claims that Sanchez has “no motivation” to play under Arsene Wenger anymore and feels that he has been “messed around” by the club.
Fernando Felicevich, who is Sanchez’s agent, is furious that a deal – which Arsenal initially indicated was possible – was called off, according to the report.
Reports also claim that City will look to tempt Sanchez to the Etihad in January in a cut-price £30million deal and provide him with wages of £300,000-a-week plus a big signing on fee.
With one year left on his current contract, Sanchez would be able to negotiate pre-contract agreements in January with clubs outside of England.
