Brutal Alexis Sanchez honesty relieving and troubling

And the Chilean has fuelled speculation of an imminent switch after posting a tweet with a "Paris, France" location before deleting it later.

Journalist Nicolas Hortus also confirmed that the 28-year-old was with his agent, as a clear indication that he was in Paris to discuss his future.

The Daily Mail says Arsenal is making one last-ditch attempt to keep Sanchez by making him the highest paid player in the Premier League.

Of course, what Alexis Sanchez gets up to in his spare time - and where - is his business, but four minutes is as about as long it took for scores of Arsenal fans to fly into a collective tizzy. "He is accompanied by his companion and his agent to negotiate with the PSG".

"If he went to City there would be uproar from the Arsenal fans".

Sanchez missed Arsenal's scintillating start to the new Premier League season, an abdominal injury forcing him to sit out the 4-3 victory over Leicester.

He was in attendance at the Emirates on Friday night to watch his side grab a late victor against the Foxes with his partner Mayte Rodriguez.

The Chilean has been ruled out of the Gunners' big kick-off against Leicester City this Friday at the Emirates Stadium, and the trip to Stoke next Saturday.

Meanwhile, PSG have spent a world-record £200m on the signing of Neymar from Barcelona this summer, but reportedly want to strengthen their squad further.

The fact that he has since removed his post from his Twitter only enhances the likelihood that he is moving clubs, although it remains unclear whether the intention was to hide it from the fans, or from the club themselves.

He has averaged a goal every two games since arriving in England, netting 72 times in 144 games.
