Sanchez has just one year remaining on his current deal, and has refused to sign a new contract at Arsenal amid reported interest from Pep Guardiola.

Arsenal doctors have visited Alexis Sanchez and confirmed that he has flu, easing the fears of fans who saw the Chilean's Instagram post as a ruse.

The 28-year-old has been linked with the likes of Paris St Germain, Manchester City, Bayern Munich and Chelsea during the summer as Arsenal face a season of Europa League football having finished fifth in the Premier League last term.

But Wenger, who has been clear he will keep Sanchez at Arsenal and risk losing him for nothing at the end of the season, insists the attacker will stay, although his return has been postponed until Tuesday.

Asked whether Sanchez has told him he wants to leave, Wenger added: "I cannot reveal what he says, I can't reveal secret conversations".

Speaking after watching his side beat Benfica 5-2 in the Emirates Cup on Saturday, Wenger said: "Alexis has flu".

"There's no problem except he won't come back tomorrow, he'll be back on Tuesday".

Alexis was not involved in this weekend's Emirates Cup as his return to training following worldwide duty Confederations Cup was delayed due to illness, as speculation of an exit from the Gunners continues to surround the exciting forward.

"There's no development. He's staying".

"What the owners would think about keeping a player you could get £60million for and then letting him go for nothing in 12 months' time, I don't know".

"I am responsible for the global policy of the club but for the players it is different". He will come back as soon as possible.
