Alexis Sanchez sends Arsenal fans into meltdown after tweeting from Paris
Alexis Sanchez continues to make Arsenal fans worry about his move away from the Emirates -- even when talking about playing football at the stadium.
Sanchez apparently tried to quell speculation about his future in a Twitter post Sunday that seemed to confirm he fully intends to stay in North London this season.
I will take your word @richardmarx and when you want we can play football at the Emirates Stadium— Alexis Sánchez (@Alexis_Sanchez) August 13, 2017
That should settle fans' nerves, right? Well, the only problem with Sanchez's post was that the original tweet had his location embedded -- showing that he was in Paris over the weekend. And that's after he reportedly met with Paris Saint-Germain officials in recent weeks, fuelling rumours that the French club was preparing a bid.
Sanchez's weekend trip could be deemed suspicious given that he's recovering from an abdominal strain that ruled him out the Gunners' opening game of the season -- an injury that, while seemingly genuine, did little to quell speculation that he might try to push through a move this transfer window.
However, players regularly use their weekends off for quick trips abroad, so perhaps there's nothing for Gunners fans to worry about. Except maybe a new musical career. Because why was Sanchez tweeting to American crooner Richard Marx in the first place?
Turns out, there might be a duet in the works. Sanchez, who has revealed in previous Instagram videos that his musical tastes seem to favour 1980s ballads, had previously shown his appreciation for Marx's most famous song "Right here waiting" on Twitter.
That, in turn, caused Marx to respond: "Let's sing it together sometime."
So, Gunners fans, which scenario is worse: Sanchez playing football for PSG, or posting a video of himself singing?
