Arsenal told us Alexis Sanchez is not on the market-Juve

“Arsenal told us Alexis Sanchez is not on the market,” reveals Juventus director Beppe Marotta, even after being quoted a €40m price-tag.

Arsenal told us Alexis Sanchez is not on the market-Juve

The rumours linking Juve with a swoop for Sanchez have been around for several week, ever since Real Madrid activated their buy-back clause on Alvaro Morata.

“Sanchez is a great player, but Arsenal told us he is not on the market,” Juventus chief Marotta told El Mercurio newspaper in Chile.

“We had asked for the player’s price-tag and Arsenal valued him at €40m, a sum that we considered reasonable.

“However, once we replied to their demand, the English club let us know that he was not for sale.”

Sanchez is only under contract with the Gunners until June 2018.

The €40m price-tag currently translates to £34m, but it’s possible the figure was quoted before the Brexit vote – when the value of the pound plummeted.
