Alexis Sanchez does NOT sound happy about having to stay at Arsenal.
When reports emerged that a fee of £60 million had been agreed between the Gunners and Manchester City, it seemed like Sanchez was finally on his way.
Any deal hinged on whether Arsenal could negotiate a move for Thomas Lemar from Monaco, who accepted a £92 million bid.
But then, disaster. Arsene Wenger pulled the plug on Lemar due to fears a deal couldn't be completed before the transfer window's closure at 11pm, meaning Sanchez was going nowhere.
It was a strange move from Arsenal's manager, who clearly got cold feet when he realised he was about to spend £92 million on one player.
All this means that Sanchez will not be able to leave until January at the earliest and, according to Goal, he's prepared to go on strike to force a move.
The Chilean is so angry with Arsenal that he doesn't want to play for them ever again.
Whether or not he actually follows through with the threat remains to be seen, but knowing Sanchez any potential strike won't last long.
And besides, if he's to complete a dream move to City in the winter, he must stay match fit and keep delivering the goods for Arsenal.
Sanchez is currently on international duty and according to native source Chile AS, he was so confident he would be joining City that he told his teammates as much during training.
Said reports needed to be taken with a pinch of salt at the time and now Arturo Vidal has revealed the truth about what Sanchez said - if anything.
Vidal claims Sanchez didn't actually tell anyone that he was joining City and that he was instead focused on the game against Paraguay.
"To whom? No, no, to nobody. Not to me. I don't think so," said Vidal in a press conference. "I think it was all made up because he was very focused on today's game."
Sanchez may not have told his Chile teammates that he was leaving Arsenal, but it's pretty clear that's what he wants.
