BREAKING: The Alexis Sanchez Transfer Saga Is Officially Over

After weeks and weeks of transfer speculation, the Alexis Sanchez transfer saga is finally over.

Because Arsenal have given up hope of signing Monaco winger Thomas Lemar after he declared that a move to Liverpool was more appealing, Sanchez will remain at the club, according to the BBC.

It is also believed that Manchester City left it too late for Arsenal to entertain their bid.

It was previously reported that Sanchez's move from Arsenal to Man City was "in the balance" because Arsenal failed in a late £90 million bid for Thomas Lemar, but it seems all but certain that the Chilean will remain in North London.

BBC journalist David Ornstein confirmed that the Sanchez saga is over:

It has been a day full of contracting reports surrounding the deal.

Earlier today, Simon Mullock from The Mirror reported that Arsenal had "agreed in principle" to accept a fresh £60 million that they received from Manchester City.

Initially, it was thought that Arsenal's preference was to get a City player as well as a hefty sum in return for Sanchez, with both Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero mentioned.

However, City were not interested in that arrangement whatsoever and are only keen on a cash-only deal for the Chilean, who is currently on international duty and is an action against Paraguay at 11:30 UK time tonight.

On the subject of international duty with Chile, the former Barcelona winger reportedly told international teammates that he was joining Manchester City on deadline day, according to Chilean outlet La Tercera.
