Alexis Sanchez has gone on to Instagram to disclose his break up with his girlfriend Mayte Rodriguez.

The Manchester United 29-year-old posted a photo he took with Mayte, to an emotional background music, explaining that they have come to the point where they have to part ways.

He made the disclosure a few days after he made a scene at Turf Moor because of his displeasure at being substituted by Jose Mourinho.

Mail Online reports Sanchez’s words as he announced the break up on Instagram: “I wish you the best of the world it was beautiful to have met you and to share nice moments with you, but we decided that each one should follow their own path, to seek our dreams.

“I do not usually do this but I ask respect from all those who speak without knowing to do harm because behind everything there is family and children… respect.”
