Alexis Sanchez has taken to social media to post a series of cryptic message after the Arsenal forward was reportedly close to a transfer to Manchester City in the summer.

There were widespread reports in the British media last week suggesting that Manchester City had made a late big-money attempt to try and tempt Arsenal into selling them the 28-year-old attacker.

Sanchez’s future has not been far from the headlines in recent months after he entered into the final 12 months of his contract at The Emirates.

However, despite the speculation, Sanchez ended up staying at Arsenal as the transfer window closed on Thursday night.

And the Chile international used his personal Instagram account’s Story to share a series of messages with his followers after the transfer deadline passed.

Sanchez wrote: “When the world reminds you of your defeats, remind them of your unforgettable victories.”

Another post read: “A winner is just a loser who tries more than once.”

He added: “What you do matters, but the reason you do it matters much more.”

A final post read: “You will realise that what today seems like a sacrifice, will end up being the greatest achievement of your life.”

Arsenal fans will be hoping to see Sanchez back in action when the Gunners take on Bournemouth at The Emirates after the international break on Saturday afternoon.
