Arsenal celebrate v Sunderland

Arsenal fans rage at Alexis Sanchez’s latest Instagram update

Is Alexis Sanchez pushing for a move from Arsenal?

It always seemed likely that Alexis Sanchez’s attempts to leave Arsenal would move up a notch when the Chilean finished his summer holidays.

Alexis Sanchez is due back to Arsenal pre-season training on Sunday due to the fact he played at the Confederations Cup with Chile.

As it stands, Sanchez has still not signed or agreed a new deal at Arsenal with just one year remaining on his contract at the Emirates.

A number of reports suggest Sanchez wants to leave Arsenal and join Manchester City. Meanwhile, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has been consistent in his stance throughout the summer that the Chilean superstar will see out his contract.


On Thursday, Arsenal confirmed on their official website that Sanchez would return to pre-season training on Sunday.

Just a few hours later, in the early hours of Friday morning, Alexis Sanchez provided his own update on Instagram.

Sanchez simply tagged two pictures with the word “sick” in English and Spanish.

The update features Sanchez with one of his dogs and in a scarf.

Now perhaps Sanchez is genuinely ill and this update will make no difference to the Chilean attacker returning in time to train on Sunday.

Or, as some are already suggesting, this is the start of an Alexis Sanchez saga where the former Barcelona attacker looks to push for a move from Arsenal.

Clearly, some Arsenal fans are angry with Sanchez for being “sick” and they have flooded his Instagram page with some comments.

A selection of the angriest ones are below.
