Alexis Sanchez in France to discuss Paris Saint-Germain offer

Arsene Wenger's 21-year tenure as Arsenal manager has exposed him to furious protests from sections of the club's support adn last season was by far the most difficult

"The biggest worry is Manchester City and that's the problem".

On Sunday afternoon, Sanchez sent a tweet to Right Here Waiting singer Richard Marx which is a completely normal thing for a professional footballer to do but Arsenal supporters began freaking after seeing the location.

"He had a scan two days ago and he's out for a while".

Tweeting from Paris, France - the location of Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain who have been linked with a move for the forward - hasn't gone down too well with the Arsenal faithful as they fear last season's top scorer could be on the move.

Arsenal has not given up on agreeing a new deal with Sanchez, but according to SFR Sport, Wenger has said he is not confident that the 28-year-old will extend his contract. I don't know how long he will be out - two weeks, maybe one more week.

Of course there is still time to change his mind, and I think that's what Wenger is going for by not signing him, but aside from that risky hope, I think we also need to embrace that it is kind of relieving, despite how brutal it is.

Reflecting on Friday's Premier League opener against the Foxes, Wenger said there were "plenty of uncertainties" surrounding his starting line-up after key players missed Sunday's Community Shield victory over Chelsea through injury.

It's a shame that this is how it is all going to happen, but as I said, something about having clarity makes the situation more bearable. "For example Ramsey, Ozil, Mertesacker, and, of course, Koscielny is suspended".

"Alexis is not available, for example".

Wenger added. "I think we have a good level of physical preparation". He was showing his frustrations and it didn't look good.

"He is focused and happy in the dressing room because we won the game".
