The 28-year-old Chilean future is uncertain at the Emirates Stadium and has been offered a £400,000-per-week deal to play in China.

Sanchez in an interview with Arsenal magazine, said: ‘I like to go to London to eat something or have a drink with my friends.

‘I do explore the city if I have the time for it but normally I would rather stay relaxed at home. London can be a stressful place because it’s crowded and it’s a big city.

‘Our routines as footballers can be energy-consuming too. You play one game after another, meet new people every day and travel a lot. That is why I try to disconnect and relax as soon as I get some time off.’
