Alexis Sanchez has denied that Thierry Henry told him to leave Arsenal for Manchester United, and insists that the Frenchman should one day manage the club.

The 29-year-old completed his move to Old Trafford earlier this week, with Armenia international Henrikh Mkhitaryan moving the other way.

Upon making his move, the Chile international wrote an Instagram post, mentioning the Gunners icon.

"I remember today, a conversation I had with Henry, a historic Arsenal player, who changed club for the same reason and today is my turn," he said.

Both Henry and Alexis, however, have now denied that the Frenchman had any say over the player's decision to quit Arsene Wenger's side.

Alexis wrote on Twitter: "I want to clarify that Henry never told me to leave the club, it was a personal decision. He LOVES the club and someday it would be nice to see him as the Arsenal coach because he loves the club."

Henry, meanwhile, wrote: "I know I don’t need to explain this to the majority of Arsenal fans but contrary to speculation at no time did I tell Alexis Sanchez to leave Arsenal."
