Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger confirmed that Alexis Sanchez is returning to pre-season training and Shkodran Mustafi will also join with him on Sunday.
28-year-old striker linked with PSG and Manchester City, but Wenger said that Sanchez is not for sale.
Wenger said ahead of their new training session: “First of all you make a really good check up of where they are, how much they have worked during their break,”
“After, once you know where you stand, they need an adjusted programme and to see how quickly you can fit them in again.
“Of course it depends as well on what is the need in the squad, what is their quality. All of these things together make your decision. Do you put them on the bench when they are not ready [to start]? It is easier to put a striker on the bench than a defender, sometimes. Because in a short period they can make an impact. We’ll see.”
