Guillem Balague has dismissed speculation that Real Madrid are interested in Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez.

Well-known Spanish football journalist Guillem Balague has claimed on social networking site Twitter that Real Madrid are not interested in Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez.

According to Don Balon, Spanish giants Madrid are interested in recruiting the Chile international.

When asked on Twitter if there is any truth in Sanchez to Madrid rumours, Balague replied: “Noooooooo. Not at all the player Real Madrid wants next. Pogba or Griezmann fit the Galactico tag much better.”

Sanchez is one of the best players in the Premier League and is a huge asset to Arsenal.

The 26-year-old attacker joined Arsenal from Spanish powerhouse Barcelona in the summer of 2014 and has been a massive success for the Gunners.

The former Udinese star scored 16 goals and created 79 chances in 35 Premier League appearances for Arsenal last season.

So far this campaign, Sanchez has scored five goals and created 11 chances in eight league matches.

Arsenal are second in the Premier League table at the moment with 16 points from eight games, just two points behind leaders Manchester City.
