Could Alexis Sanchez and Andy Murray Be Sport’s Unlikeliest Bromance?

Could Alexis Sanchez and Andy Murray Be Sport’s Unlikeliest Bromance?

Alexis Sanchez has invited Andy Murray to an Arsenal game after seeing the tennis star wear his jersey.

The Scottish athlete is a Hibs fan at heart, but holds a special place in his heart, it seems, for the Gunners.

His brother Jamie, a Manchester United fan, shared this photo on Twitter yesterday as both posed with their new Christmas presents.

And Andy can be seen pointing towards Alexis and the number 17 in the picture:

That’s obviously caught the attention of Sanchez, who extended an invite to Murray on Twitter a few hours before his side went down 4-0 to Southampton in the late English Premier League kick-off.

Sanchez – who missed the game through injury – posted:

Now that would be a friendship, wouldn’t it?

We’re almost certain that Sanchez doesn’t speak the best English and sometimes Murray is difficult enough to get a conversation out of.

But let’s hope Murray takes the Chilean striker up on his offer.
