Arsenal boss Wenger confirms Alexis in Barcelona today

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has confirmed Alexis Sanchez is in Barcelona today.

There were suggestions that Sanchez had left the UK to cool off after reportedly being involved in a row with his Gunners team-mates following the humiliating 5-1 defeat to Bayern Munich.

But Wenger confirmed that Sanchez has obligations in Spain, with the former Barcelona set to attend a court case in Catalunya.

It had been reported that Sanchez could face a possible jail term after admitting two counts of tax fraud, but this is unlikely.

Wenger said: “He has a court case in Barcelona and he'll be back in training tomorrow."
