Alexis Sanchez breaks silence on Arsenal future after Arsenal’s victory in FA Cup final

Alexis Sanchez has broken his silence over his future in bizarre fashion after Arsenal’s victory over Chelsea in the FA Cup final on Saturday.

Sanchez scored the opening goal at Wembley, although the ball struck the Chilean’s arm in the build up to the chance.

Chelsea were reduced to 10 men after Victor Moses was sent off for diving but managed to equalise through Diego Costa.

Aaron Ramsey struck just three minutes later to secure the 2-1 win for the Arsene Wenger’s side, meaning that the Gunners are now the most successful team in the FA Cup.

For Sanchez, the victory at Wembley could be his last appearance in an Arsenal shirt following reports linking him with moves to Bayern Munich, Manchester City and Chelsea.

The 28-year-old will have only a year remaining on his current contract and while Wenger has remained adamant that his top goalscorer will not be sold, Arsenal now face the prospect of losing him for free next summer if they decide to keep him at the club.

In an interview with BBC Sport after the match, Sanchez, who only speaks minimal English, appeared to misunderstand a reporter’s question when asked if he felt his early goal meant that it would be a good day for Arsenal.

‘I don’t know my friend, finished now, so happy for the win and the FA Cup, happy for the players, now I don’t know,’ replied Sanchez.
