The video was made public on Tuesday and features Sanchez wearing a replica Malaga shirt.

Writing on Twitter, Sanchez claimed he had been blackmailed over the video prior to it being made public.

“I am being subjected to a crime against my privacy with harassment and extortion,” he said.

“The matter is in the hands of the police and I entrust myself to follow their instructions.

“Sharing or disseminating an intimate content of any person without consent is also a crime either through social networks or messages or in any other way. Thank you for your understanding and support.”

Malaga are currently 16th in Spain's second-tier having won just one of their past five matches.
