Arsenal fans are begging Alexis Sanchez to stay at the club after he posted a cryptic message to his Instagram followers.
The Chilean has been linked with a move away from the Emirates for a while, and many believe he will be on his way when the transfer window opens next month.
The 28-year-old has stalled on signing an extension on his Gunners contract, which is set to expire next summer, and he is not short of admirers.
Manchester City and Chelsea are reportedly keen on the forward, while Bayern Munich have also shown interest, much to the dismay of Arsenal fans.
So far Sanchez has kept his cards close to his chest, but he recently posted a cryptic message to Instagram, and it seems Gunners fans are unsure how to take it.
The post, which featured a picture of the Chilean dressed up as an old man, accompanied some rather ambiguous text, Reuters reported.
“I’m already 80 years old,” wrote Sanchez. “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 to things and remember that everything goes on something.
“Keep your smile always, even if your heart cries.”
A number of Sanchez’s followers have responded to the post, with rival fans instructing him to leave the Emirates and join their club.
But many Gunners supporters have also had their say, with a huge number begging him to stay in north London, at least for one more season.
“Sanchez, every single Arsenal fan loves you. Over 1,000,0000 people cheer for you when your name is on the team sheet, wrote one, adding: “We all sing for you, surely that means more than following the money?”
Another said: “Do not leave Gunners please, be a red London legend,” while a third simply concluded: “Please stay at Arsenal.”
