Alexis Sanchez back in London after illness

Alexis Sanchez has returned to London after illness delayed his trip from Chile.

The forward was on an extended break following his Confederations Cup exploits, and was due back on Sunday. However, he informed Arsene Wenger via text that he was unwell and the Arsenal manager permitted his late arrival back.

It naturally led to speculation about his future, in the wake of links to Man City and PSG, but Sanchez has rather cheerfully announced his return to England via his Instagram account.

He posted a picture of himself with dogs Atom and Humber in front of the private jet that flew him from Santiago overnight.

The 28 year old traveled with a friend who is also a lawyer, which may or may not mean something as the discussions over his future continue.

Fans shouldn’t worry though, as Arsenal have their own crack team of legal eagles on hand to deal with the situation.

Alexis is due back in training this week where he’ll be assessed ahead of the start of the new season next Friday.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN!?!

W Main

6 mirrors, 2 dogs. Sunshine, plane pointing rightward.

6. 2. 6-2. Football score.

Guys it all makes sense! He’s off to Real Madrid!

Trust no one.

Abhishek Gooner

It could also mean 6-2=4 , the no we are forever stuck with meaning he will be forever stuck with us

AFC

To me, 6-2 6-2 seems more like a tennis score but what the hell. 😉

Wait a minute: tennis, Nadal, Spain, Madrid… you were right in the first place, but lucky!!

NaanBread

Well, it clearly means Atom and Humber had a great flight. Look at them, they look so sprightly!

Tom Gun

Guys it’s all so obvious – the clue has been in the dogs all along: aTOM HUMBer. This is clearly a code/reference to Tom Thumb. Tom Thumb is a tiny human with magic powers so obviously means Alexis. Tom Thumb, as I’m sure you all know, was the FIRST FAIRYTALE WRITTEN IN ENGLISH (in 1621) so therefore, obviously d’uh, this means we will have a FAIRYTALE ending with Arsenal winning the league this season by 16 points and 21 ahead of Sp*rs.

It’s all so obvious. How has no-one pointed this out yet?

Wengerballz

It’s a code. “Back in London” in reverse reads “I want more money”

Damo Dinkum

Dirdam eht nioj

Domi

Ambition, potential for trophies, more deserved money (compared to other players of his stature, although they all earn crazy and undeserved money anyways).

Big Mad Andy

Am I the only person that listens to the shipping forecast? 8 Paws on Tarmac is a region just off the coast by Manchester. Manchester Shippy. Do I need to spell it out?

kveb

Top work!

The Loon Ranger

Obvious reference to Dogger as in shipping forecast

Nigerian Rex

Can we just sign his dogs and let him go? A blissful worst case scenario

lordMartynz

Does Alexis even have a girlfriend or anything close to it?? Maybe even friends…He keeps flaunting only dogs….

OneBeatOff

God, I hope so. The dog thing has been a genius media diversion. Think of all the lines that have been dedicated to the dogs. If I were a celebrity, I’d have a parrot do the pressers … keep’em guessing.

RobM

Didn’t ‘arry redknapp actually have his dog do the pressers? He certainly had it do the banking

Aleksey

He likes dags

GreekGooner

I hate this diva-like attitute but the fact is that he is SO important to us… I cross my fingers come whatever may but bring us the GOD DAM LEAGUE!

Alex

No, he is not “SO” important to us. His lost balls and egoism can’t make up for the rest, sorry. And he was part of the team against Bayern, the 120 minutes (contrary to Özil) and he was part of the team that finished 5th.

Faisal Narrage

Piss off with your fancy facts. WE DON’T NEED ANYMORE EXPERTS TELLING US THE TRUTH.

Kostas Greek Gooner

Calm down mate. I apologize for blogs attitude. Please tell us what you need and we ll provide.

George Georgiou

Thats a bit harsh Faisal… Author does have a valid point.

Lets hope our midfield chop in with a few goals this season. We need more goals from the Ox and Ozil, and players like welbeck to chip in with more goals so we are not over reliant on any 1 individual

Tasmanian Jesus

I heard we’re intrested in the brilliant midfielder, Chip Goals.

Anonymarse

Fake news

Easy tiger

Yes, but we cant know what would happen of we didnt have him. The whole squad would have a different dynamic. It is to easy to point to stats alone.

Segy Turner

Let the games begin ?

Twatsloch

Let the blame begin!

Terry Henry

*POLL*
Thumbs up: Alexis will start the first game of the season.
Thumbs down: He won’t.

allezkev

He might be on the subs bench?

George Georgiou

Hiya Kev,

He’ll definitely be on the bench for Leicester, but whether he is around ome end of the window remains to be seen.

Timack

Juste stay ffs!!!

Toby

Never lost a case!

naija gunner

He should be sold to PSG and his dogs shipped to China. Yeah right, he is not the only one that can play games.

Toure motors

Impound his dogs until he signs a new 10 year contract

gooner

Shhhhh it’s silent Stan! He could silence them on TV

Myco

I love this….

truj
Anonymarse

It’s a conspiracy

David Hillier\'s luggage

That and his lawyer tagged them on Instagram saying they were going from Paris to London

camalbitboy

Are we trading Alexis for Mbappe?

Anonymarse

He is probably just taking the piss. I would if I were him.

DB10**

Thankfully the headline says illness and not ‘illness’.

Yes! He was really sick.

Twatsloch

He’s willing to get into bed with Citeh, how sick is that?

Martin

Evidence please. All media rubbish.

Anonymarse

Almost all of what has been going around about Alexis is pure speculation / lies

pedro

What’s the Spanish for “I’m happy to be back playing for Arsenal and am looking forward to the season ahead”?

Anonymarse

With a name like Pedro can’t you tell me?

pedro

Pedro isn’t even the correct Spanish form of my name, my friends were as shit at nicknames as I am at Spanish.

Martin

Estoy contento de volver a jugar para el Arsenal y espreso con ansias la temporada por delante

Tom Gun

Estoy feliz de estar de vuelta jugando para Arsenal y deseando que llegue la temporada.

You’re welcome / De nada!

Haffy

He’s recovered from his (s)ill(i)ness

Rob Pyres

S’ok…Alan & Denny will get him signed up on a new 4 year 300k (+ bonuses) p/w deal with a £150m buyout clause. Because…….”Denny Crane”

pedro

Pissing away £100m+ in lost transfer fees will be next year’s excuse come the transfer window. At least we can watch elephants being shot on the telly though. Good business.

Mark

Sell him….. if he don’t wanna stay at Arsenal get rid of him, nothing like Koscielny

wylde

Love the pics of his ‘lawyer’ in the click-bait articles. The fact the ‘lawyer’ is shown clearly in a commercial aircraft and Sanchez flew back in a private jet doesn’t seem to inform the journos’ stories.

ashburton red

His arrival is ideal

Agan

Just give the cash to Sanchez and Ozil FFS

A W

I just came on to see pictures of the dogs 🙁

Dylan

Could have done with an ould #arsenal in that tweet

Gooner1886

Where’s all the bellends that said he wouldn’t come back?
