Transfer talk makes Sanchez better, Chile hopes

KAZAN, Russia (AP) Chile thinks transfer speculation around Alexis Sanchez will drive him to play even better against Portugal in the Confederations Cup semifinals.

Sanchez has been linked with a move away from Arsenal and, far from distracting him, Chile teammate Marcelo Diaz said "he will be able to keep developing during this summer and I think that his personal situation will help him grow."

Coach Juan Antonio Pizzi suggested the demand for Sanchez is a boost to his self-esteem, saying "we suppose he is very happy because he is going through a very special situation and I think everybody would like to be in this situation because the best clubs in the world want to have him in their squads."
