The Chilean’s desire to leave Arsenal is becoming one of the biggest transfer sagas of the summer window, with Manchester City and Bayern Munich trying to prise him away from the Gunners.
Despite his keenness to work either under Pep Guardiola or Carlo Ancelotti, Arsenal will do everything possible to block a move – even if it means losing him for free next summer.
And Sanchez has taken to Instagram to post a message describing his current emotions, uploading a throwback image to the time he dressed up as an old man for a commercial.
‘I’m already 80 and you know why there’s always a smile on my face?
‘Because life taught me that you always have to look for the good side of things and remember that “everything happens for a reason”.
‘So keep your smile always, even though your heart cries.’
The message suggests Sanchez’s hopes of securing a move away from Arsenal are dwindling, with any move now likely to be delayed until after he has participated at the Confederations Cup.
Man City are reportedly on the verge of making a £50 million bid for the Chilean forward, which could in turn force Bayern to lodge an official offer at long last.
