Valencia midfielder Coquelin: What Arsenal players REALLY think of Alexis...

Valencia midfielder Francis Coquelin is adamant Alexis Sanchez will leave Arsenal on good terms.

Alexis is on the brink of signing Manchester United.

“Well, you know Alexis Sanchez has quality on the pitch," Coquelin told BBC Sport after completing his £12m move.

“He is someone who, at any time, he can produce something magical so he is a top player.

“I hear a lot of things that the dressing room wasn't getting on well with him but I don't really know where that comes from.

"Sometimes that's what people say when you've got a great player, we talk about ego but he is someone who is always keen to work and I didn't have any problem with him.

“I don't think the squad have a problem. I think the only problem is the uncertainty around him.

“They probably don't know what next week is going to be, if he's going to be here or not.

“That's what the transfer window is all about so they will probably know in the next couple of days or so."
