New Manchester United signing Alexis Sanchez says Arsenal legend Thierry Henry did not tell him to leave, and it was a "personal decision".
After signing for United in a swap deal with Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Sanchez referenced a "conversation" with Henry.
That led some Gunners supporters to question the Frenchman, who responded on Tuesday: "At no time did I tell Alexis Sanchez to leave Arsenal."
Sanchez said Henry - who left for Barcelona in 2007 - "loves" the club.
The Chilean wrote on Twitter: "Someday it would be nice to see him as the Arsenal coach."
After his move to United was confirmed on Monday, Sanchez posted on Instagram: "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."
Some interpreted that as Sanchez suggesting Henry - Arsenal's all-time record scorer with 228 goals - had told him to leave.
The former France international responded: "I had no idea he was going to sign for Man Utd until I saw it on the news like the rest of you."
Sanchez scored 80 times for Arsenal after joining the club from Barcelona for £30m in July 2014.
The 29-year-old has signed a four-and-a-half-year contract.
