The delay in signing the contract is reportedly due to Sanchez's demand for an exorbitant weekly salary. If Arsenal does agree to the demand, then the 27-year-old athlete from Chile would become one of the most highly paid players in club's history.

Sanchez's current contract will end in 2018. By the end of the same year, the contract of another Arsenal star, Mesut Ozil, is also set to expire.

Reports from Emirates stadium suggest that Arsenal's management will soon start negotiation to offer a new contract to both players.

Gunner's manager Arsene Wenger is believed to be very keen in offering a new contract to both the Chilean and German international.  

Sanchez and Ozil's long-term commitments are apparently crucial for Arsenal's quest to end its decade-long title drought. Both players' impressive performances this season have ensured that gunners remain in the title contention this season.

Arsenal is currently on fourth position in the league table, six points adrift of the current league leader Chelsea.

If Alexis Sanchez does sign for a Chinese club after 2018, then he will be the latest star to join the star-studded CSL. The cash rich league broke all the transfer records ahead of the current season, spending more money than English premier and Spanish La Liga Clubs.

The big spending by Chinese clubs attracted big soccer stars like Hulk, Jackson Martinez, Ramires, and Graziano Pelle.
