The 29-year-old was not present at London Colney on Monday and the Gunners reportedly failed to report Uefa he would not be present to give blood !
ARSENAL and Manchester United MUST explain to Uefa why Alexis Sanchez missed a drugs test on Monday, as the Chilean was sealing a switch to the Red Devils.
According to Spanish news outlet Sport, Europe’s governing body turned up to London Colney at the beginning of the week, but were failed to be notified by the Gunners that the 29-year-old would not be present to give blood.
The two Premier League clubs – along with the two-time FA Cup winner – have now found themselves in hot water, and have to appear before Uefa to explain the absence of the former Barcelona star.
Sanchez was finally unveiled as a United player on Monday, in a swap exchange with Armenian sensation Henrikh Mkhitaryan heading to the Emirates.
But reports from Spain claim that the ex-Udinese man was chosen by Uefa to undertake sanctioned blood extractions, and will hereby have to explain why he skipped the anti-doping control.
This news could come as a blow to Sanchez, who has been gearing up to make his United debut against Yeovil in the FA Cup on Friday.
