The Chile international have made 55 appearances for the Blaugrana, finding the back of the net 21 times, while turning provider in 17 instances.
“Sanchez has had a great season and, of course, will be a part of Barcelona next season as well.” Josep Bartomeu on Alexis Sanchez
He was given a deserved break under the reign of Tata Martino, but with the Argentine already replaced by Luis Enrique, the 25-year-old attacker is thinking of moving to a club wherein he will be given a regular starting spot.
However, Barca president Josep Bartomeu is firm that Sanchez will not be going anywhere this offseason.
"He's not for sale," said Bartomeu.
"He has a contract with us and is an important part of the squad."
"Sanchez has had a great season and, of course, will be a part of Barcelona next season as well."
It remains to be seen whether the £27million-rated former Undinese man will want to write a new chapter on his playing career.
