Is this a photoshop or is it real?
A picture is being passed around Arsenal fans on social media sites on Thursday morning claiming to be a screenshot from FC Barcelona’s official website.
According to the information in the image, Barcelona have close terms with the Gunners for the sale of Alexis Sanchez to the Emirates.
The article, which was short on the details of the contract Sanchez has agreed with Arsenal, says that the clubs “have reached an agreement’, while “FC Barcelona wishes to publicly thank Alexis Sanchez, and wish him all the very best for the future”.
According to the rumour mill, this article was posted onto Barcelona’s website, only to be pulled down seconds later.
In any event, it feels like Alexis Sanchez will finally complete his move to London today.
