Sanchez Fails To Go To Training With Arsenal

Sanchez Fails To Go To Training With Arsenal

The prolific forward was given an extended break following his involvement at the Confederations Cup but is now heading back to London and will resume training this weekend alongside Shkodran Mustafi who was in part of the Confed Cup winning Germany team.

Alexis Sanchez has one year remaining on his current contract with PSG and Manchester City both interested in signing him.

The message has caused concern Sanchez may not return back to Arsenal training on Sunday as scheduled.

"After, once you know where you stand, they need an adjusted programme and to see how quickly you can fit them in again".

Lifting the FA Cup in the final game of the season would have given the player a lift but, given his continuing contract uncertainty, former Arsenal striker Alan Smith believes it is a "no-brainer" to let Sanchez leave if he is actively seeking an exit.

Jordan shooting : Two killed, one wounded at Israeli embassy
Israeli media reported Monday that an Israeli security guard opened fire after a Jordanian worker attacked him with a screwdriver. Jordan said initially that the guard could leave only after an investigation, while Israel said he enjoyed diplomatic immunity.

He said: "Arsene Wenger says he is determined not to sell him, but he seems determined to leave". Wenger reckons the Egyptian did well but for me he looked out of his depth and I would not have much confidence in him doing the job for us there in EPL matches. Do you put them on the bench when they are not ready [to start]?

"Alexis Sanchez is a big shadow hanging over the Emirates", Smith told talkSPORT.

Speaking to 24 Horas in Chile, Bravo is quoted as saying today, "If he decides to go, we'll wait for him with open arms at City".

The Chile global has been enjoying an extended summer holiday after having helped his country reach the Confederations Cup final in Russian Federation.

Sanchez wants Champions League football, something Arsenal can't provide next season, and is thought to be keen on joining another side to enhance his chances of winning major silverware before his career is over.
