Sanchez in court

Arsenal winger Alexis Sanchez is in Barcelona for tax fraud court case as confirmed by Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger.

The Chile international was given some time off by Wenger and was pictured on Thursday morning arriving back after Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich. The 28 year old caught British Airways flight ahead of a court case in Barcelona.

Reports suggest that the 28 year old has failed to pay tax on 888,246 pounds between 2012 and 2013 an allegation Sanchez has denied. The Arsenal winger is set to return to England on Saturday and could play against Sutton on Monday night.

Sanchez who has 16 months remaining in his contract could leave Arsenal as he has been heavily linked with a move away from Emirates with talks over new deal stalling.
