Alexis Sanchez has responded to reports linking him with move to Real Madrid by insisting he is happy at Arsenal and not thinking about leaving the club.
The former Barcelona star has been linked with a move to the Santiago Bernabeu this week, with reports claiming los Blancos are lining up for a move for the Chile international in 2016.
However, speaking at a press conference in Chile on Wednesday following back-to-back World Cup 2018 qualification wins, Alexis dismissed the speculation and stressed he plans on remaining at the Emirates Stadium for the foreseeable future.
“I have no idea what the media are saying, but I feel comfortable at Arsenal,” he told reporters. “I’m happy with my team-mates and the city of London is beautiful. I’m not going to change, I’m very happy.
“I always want to be the best at everything I do. I’m never happy with what I do, I always want to give more. My mum is always my coach. She phones me and tells me to shoot at goal more often.”
Alexis has been in fine form for his country scoring in Thursday’s 2-0 win over Brazil before adding a double in the 4-3 victory over Peru on Tuesday but admitted he was “a bit tired” after the Peru game.
When asked about a group of Peru fans attempting to halt him in his tracks by cursing him, he added: “These are things that come with football. People invent things. I’m happy, we won.”
Arsenal are back in Premier League action on Saturday as they take on Watford at Vicarage Road.
