Sanchez reminded fans on his personal Instagram account that he will be ready to fight against Bayern for the “love of those behind him” on Tuesday, as Arsenal look to do the impossible.
Sanchez’s battle cry comes after the the Daily Mail claims the former Barcelona attacker wants to leave the Emirates Stadium in the summer.
