Alexis Sanchez is in London to complete his move from Barcelona to Arsenal.

Marca says Alexis had his medical at Arsenal yesterday as he draws closer to a £30m move.

Juventus and Manchester United were both interested in Sanchez. Liverpool were also keen and wanted to lure him to Anfield as part of a deal that would see Luis Suarez go in the opposite direction.

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.

He wrote: "Alexis Sanchez said goodbye. Just as the newspaper ‘Sport’ confirmed, Alexis Sanchez is leaving FC Barcelona to start a new phase of his career at Arsenal.

"During the three seasons that he was at Barca, the whole team at Carlosmoles salon, enjoyed having him."
