The forward, who is preparing for Chile's Confederations Cup semi-final against Portugal on 28 June, admitted in May that he was "frustrated" with Arsenal's season and that he would make a decision on his future in the summer. "We think he's very happy", he said.
"I think everybody would like to be in a similar situation because the best clubs in the world would like to have him, although he is already playing for a great club".
"After the last games, maybe one or two people in this tournament respect us more than before because I think we've played a really good tournament up to now", he said.
Arsenal remain committed to convincing Sanchez to sign a new contract, although the chances of that happening appear unlikely following the club's failure to qualify for the Champions League. I know him very well.
Arsene Wenger has stated the Chilean is going nowhere this summer, suggesting he could be allowed to run-down his contract if he doesn't pen a new deal, but the Gunners would certainly prefer to sell overseas rather than lose him on a free transfer, potentially to a Premier League rival, in a year's time.
As a outcome, plus a reluctance it seems to pen a new deal, he's attracted the attention of Bayern Munich where global teammate Arturo Vidal is plying his trade.
"We'll see if Alexis is coming". "But I just remember the people are very nice, very kind, very open and they are insane! I do not know yet", Vidal told Bild earlier this week. He is a spectacular player.
"Maybe before people were thinking: 'It's a young team, maybe it's going to be a bit easier for us, ' but I think we've proved those people wrong". We think we get better and better when we get to the latter stages of competitions.
