The Spanish club’s manager Jorge Sampaoli knows Sanchez well from his time a coach of the Chilean national team, and he could prove influential on the player’s future destination if he leaves the Emirates.
The Star also report that Atletico Madrid are considering Sanchez as a possible replacement for forward Antoine Griezmann if the French international departs in the summer. Atletico are however still serving a transfer ban which will remain in force in the summer, and it would prevent any move for Sanchez going ahead.
Italian sides Juventus and Inter Milan have also been linked with the Chilean, with Juve believed to be raising funds from the sales of Simone Zaza and Kingsley Coman in order to bankroll an offer for Sanchez. Paris Saint-Germain have also mentioned as another side who may attempt a summer bid for the 28 year old.
