Sanchez future already decided, Courtois meeting Madrid agents

Alexis Sanchez claims he knows whether he will stay at Arsenal or leave this summer, but the Chile international is refusing to make his decision public.

He is currently away on international duty with Chile at the Confederations Cup and on whether his future remains uncertain, the forward said: ‘It’s clear but I can’t tell you.’

Sanchez was speaking alongside compatriot and City keeper Claudio Bravo, whose club manager Pep Guardiola is keen to sign the 28-year-old.

And when Sanchez was asked whether Bravo would soon be his team-mate for club as well as country, he said: ‘Good question! Right now I’m focused on the Confederations Cup. When this is finished I will see if I stay of if I go. I don’t know
