Alexis Sanchez was dumped by his girlfriend Laia Grassi because he could not provide the goods in the bedroom, reports Chilean newspaper La Cuarta.
The Gunners star saw his face eradicated from Grassi's Instagram account last week in what was the clearest indication that the two had parted ways.
Originally, it was claimed that the separation was a result of the former Miss Chile, Camila Andrade, claiming that Sanchez tried and failed to take her out for dinner shortly before the World Cup.
The beauty queen spoke at length of the alleged Whatsapp conversation, saying that she turned Sanchez down because he was not her type. Trying to take another lady out is certainly grounds for dumping, but it appears Grassi left Sanchez for a wholly different reason: sex.
Yes, Sanchez, too committed to playing football for his new club, refused to meet Grassi' demands in the bedroom in order to save his energy for the pitch. Too many early nights seemingly left Grassi with little option but to leave.

Of course, some of you may be baffled by this turn of events. It was the same newspaper that claimed that Sanchez had been under-performing for Arsenal because he was having too much sex - that's right.
So we're not sure where La Cuarta have dug up this story, but we like it nonetheless. Either way, it is looking increasingly certain that Sanchez and Grassi have indeed parted ways.
Sanchez has not let it get to his head though. He provided two assists for Arsenal in their 4-1 win over Newcastle United on Saturday, proving his focus remains on the pitch.
For those of you wondering, Grassi's face is available for gawking below.
