On Saturday night, a rumour began to do the rounds that Alexis Sanchez is currently in Paris ahead of a potential move to PSG.

A french journo and PSG ‘news’ account with 45k Twitter followers claim that Alexis is currently in Paris and while this is by no means definitive proof that he’s there for talks over a move to PSG, that’s where the media have gone with this information.


While nothing’s set in stone just yet, UK grime artist and Gooner, Lethal Bizzle, claimed that he saw the Chilean at Luton airport boarding a private jet.

Bizzle Snapchatted the whole thing, saying that he believes that 28-year-old is leaving Arsenal, but the blurry picture he posted shows what looks like a man with tattoos. Alexis doesn’t have tattoos.

However, even if Alexis has flown off somewhere, so have Granit Xhaka, Sead Kolasinac, and Nacho Monreal.


It’s the weekend after all and if I had as much money as them, I’d be jetted off somewhere nice for a couple of quiet days off myself.

The most solid piece of evidence we have that Alexis is in fact in Paris was a tweet he sent on Sunday afternoon. It wasn’t the content of the tweet that gave him away, it was the fact he had his location switched on.

The tweet, which our very own Anita screen-grabbed herself, was then deleted, presumably because people were going crazy on social media, and posted with the location switched off.

As I previously said, just because the 28-year-old is in Paris doesn’t mean that he’s signing for PSG – they’ve just spent £198m on Neymar.

Arsene Wenger also said just recently that the forward, who is set to miss out on a couple of games with an abdominal injury, is focused and happy, saying, “He practised well today, this morning, had a good session for the first time because he had a little muscular strain. He is focused and happy in the dressing room because we won the game.”

Legitimate cause for concern or just a romantic weekend break? Time will tell.
