According to Sky Sports, Arsenal forward and Chelsea target Alexis Sanchez has decided where he will be playing his football next season, but has refused to reveal exactly what is happening.
The Chilean attacker has been heavily linked with a move away from the Emirates this summer as he has just a year left on his contract and is yet to commit his long-term future to the Gunners, who failed to qualify for the Champions League next season following their fifth-place finish in the Premier League.
Speaking on Friday, Sanchez told Sky Sports: “Right now I’m focused on the Confederations Cup. When this is finished I will see if I stay or if I go. I don’t know.”
When asked if he knew where he would be playing next season, he added: “Yes it’s clear but I can’t tell you.”
The Daily Mail stated earlier this month that Chelsea and Manchester City are among the club interested in signing the 28-year-old, who scored 30 goals in 51 appearances in all competitions for the north London outfit.
Chelsea supporters were quick to have their say on Sanchez’s latest comments via social media, and some believe the attacker is on his way to Stamford Bridge.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…

Still curious to know if we went for Sanchez. If Conte wanted him and he's willing to leave I don't see why we wouldn't have got him… #CFC
