Sanchez Was Happy He Leaving Arsenal - Mauricio Isla

Alexis Sanchez was delighted when he thought his dream move to Manchester City was on the cards, according to his international teammate Mauricio Isla.
The 28-year-old was desperate to reunite with Pep Guardiola at the Etihad. But Sanchez was taken on a rollercoaster of emotions on deadline day while on the other side of the world.

Arsenal accepted an offer worth £60m, but their failure to land replacement Thomas Lemar meant City’s approach was eventually blocked.

Arsene Wenger insists the forward will be focused on the season ahead with Sanchez now back in England.

 But Isla explains the former Barcelona star wanted to fly back from Chile to the North West rather than north London again.
"Alexis is at a top club like Arsenal, but he was very happy to move on to another big club," said Isla.

"After the news came and his situation completely changed, and he wasn't able to sign the contract, Alexis felt sad and surely that affected him.

"When Alexis is well, the team is better."
