Robert Pires admits he is unsure whether Alexis Sanchez will stay at Arsenal
The Frenchman, who is currently working alongside Sanchez as a coach, said he speaks with the striker every day – but is still none the wiser as to whether he will renew his deal with the club.
Alexis Sanchez’s current contract runs out in 17 months time and the Chilean has yet to indicate whether he will renew his stay at the club beyond 2018.
Pires is back at Arsenal this season and has been working with the first team squad.
He told La Tercera: “Last week I spoke with Alexis about his renewal, but he told me he does not know anything and that the only thing he wants to do is play.
“He does not know what will happen, it is clear that we all would like him to stay at Arsenal.
“All we want is for Alexis to remain at Arsenal. I hope he renews his contract because he is a wonderful player. Alexis is the engine of the car. I hope he stays forever.”
