Suggestions were that the 30 year-old was being punished for his gruesome play in the UEFA Champions League first leg clash against AS Monaco which Arsenal lost 1-3 at the Etihad.

More troubles could be on the way for the 2014 World Cup winner with UK reports speculating that the Vice-captain could be sold out to any interested party that meets the club’s demand in the summer.

Already, a viable replacement has been found in Brazilian midfielder, Gabriel Paulista who stood in for the German in Sunday’s victory.
