Marca says Alexis had his medical at Arsenal yesterday as he draws closer to a £30m move.
However, Sanchez preferred a move to Arsenal.
The Chile ace's barber Carlos Moles claimed Sanchez has told him he's off to Arsenal and that he has "said goodbye".
Moles posted this message on the barbershop's Carlosmoles salon Facebook page yesterday.
"During the three seasons that he was at Barca, the whole team at Carlosmoles salon, enjoyed having him."
