Alexis Sanchez returned to Arsenal training on Tuesday, after arriving back in London following an extended break.
Sanchez, who is the subject of interest from Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain, flew from Chile via Paris with his lawyer and headed to the club’s London Colney training ground in the afternoon.
The Paris route was purely coincidental, as it is normal for South American players to stop off in places such as Paris and Madrid for refuelling.
The 28-year-old was initially supposed to return on Sunday, but was granted an extended leave while he recovered from sickness.
When asked whether he felt Sanchez’s illness is a convenient excuse to prolong his absence from the club, Wenger said: “Your job is to be suspicious and is built on mistrust and my job is built on trust! That’s why I prefer my side [of the story].”
Sanchez is scheduled to be at the Arsenal members open training session at the Emirates on Thursday.
