Alexis Sanchez sends message of support to Arturo Vidal

Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez has sent Chilean teammate Arturo Vidal an emotional Instagram message after the Juventus midfielder was involved in a car crash this past week. 

The crash has in fact been the subject of much debate of late, with police having confirmed that Vidal was driving the vehicle under the influence of alcohol. 

Vidal, who was taken to the the San Luis de Buin hospital in his homeland of Chile, was sitting alongside his wife Maria Teresa Matus, however both escaped serious injuries. 

In fact, as reported by the Independent, the midfield ace commented on the accident, thanking fans for their concern. 

He stated: "Unfortunately I was involved in a traffic accident. Luckily we are all well and quiet. Thanks for the concern!

"I'm doing well, greetings to all and thanks for your concern."

Sanchez message

And one man who's certainly on Vidal's side is Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez, who showed his support for his international teammate via social media. 

On Instagram, he posted: "Black bank and I give you my full support as always. The most important thing is that you and your family and other people are good. I love."

Club teammates? 

Vidal, of course, has been heavily linked with a move to Arsenal in recent time, so Sanchez may well play alongside the midfield ace on the club scene in the near future. There's no doubt about it, despite this recent controversy surrounding the midfielder, he'd make a wonderful signing for the Gunners, as they go about overhauling Premier League champions Chelsea at the summit of the table. 

Ultimately, Vidal would bring a great deal of experience to the Arsenal side, having secured great success in Turin over the past couple of years. Of course, the Gunners already have youngster Francis Coquelin at their disposal, but the signing of Vidal would prove a step up. 

And, at the end of the day, Wenger has been building this team for long enough, so the club really need to win the title sooner rather than later. The signing of Vidal would give them a far greater chance. The Juventus man, though, clearly needs to get his act together off the pitch in the immediate future.

Sanchez the talisman 

Alexis Sanchez, on the other hand, is the man to act as the Gunners' talisman in the 2015/16 campaign. In truth, the Chilean ace was the club's standout player last term, but he will no doubt be hoping to improve further next term. 

There's no doubt about it, a creator and scorer of goals, Sanchez has the credentials to emulate Chelsea's Eden Hazard, and establish himself as the standout player in England's elite division.
