ALEXIS SANCHEZ has been pictured in Chile about to board a plane to Paris, France.

Arsenal are expecting Sanchez in London on Tuesday after giving him time to recover from illness.

But Chilean lawyer Ruben Inostrova Povea, posted a picture on Instagram of himself with Sanchez en route to Paris and then London.

Povea’s caption, when translated into English, said: “PARIS – LONDON with my friend @alexis_officia1. THERE WE GO.”


It is not clear why Sanchez is travelling to Paris before flying to London but in 2015 he was forced to spend the night in the French capital as he waited for a new visa to be processed.

But Sanchez’s flight will do little to quell speculation linking him with a move to Paris Saint Germain and Express Sport understands the French side will make a £35m bid for the 28-year-old once they have signed Neymar.

Last week, Sanchez claimed he was ill in a post on Instagram which led sceptics to question the severity of the sickness.

But Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger said he was in contact with the attacker and remained confident the forward will stay at the club.

“He has flu yes, I had him on text yesterday,” Wenger revealed on Saturday.

“He will come back as soon as possible and we were in touch with him and his doctor and he has no basic problem apart from the fact that he should come back tomorrow, but he comes back on Tuesday.

“Your job (as journalists) is to be suspicious. Your job is built on mistrust and mine is built on trust. So that’s why I prefer my side.

“He’s flying back as soon as he’s in a position to fly back. He has flu and that’s a question of normally four or five days.”
