Alexis Sanchez tells Wenger he wants out

The Chilean craves for Champions League football.

Alexis Sanchez has told Arsenal he wants to leave the club to follow his ‘dream’ of winning the Champions League. Sanchez, who has been long speculated to leave, says he is waiting for the club’s reply to his demands.

Arsenal failed to qualify for the Champions League for the first time in over 20 years as they finished 5th and will be part of Europa League.

Speaking in his native Chile, Sanchez said: ‘I want to play in the Champions League. The decision isn’t down to me, I need to wait for Arsenal.”

‘I’ve made my decision, now I wait for Arsenal’s reply. The idea is to play and win the Champions League. I’ve dreamt about it since I was little.’

‘For now I am at Arsenal and I finish my contract in one more year.’

As recently as Friday night, manager Wenger had revealed he was texting Sanchez through the summer to convince him to stay on at Arsenal.
