Wenger shuts door on Alexis Sanchez transfer rumour
Arsenal will not sell Sanchez to any other Premier League club – Arsene Wenger.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger insists in an interview that he will not sell Alexis Sanchez to any other Premier League club.
Many Premier League clubs including Manchester United and Manchester City are showing interest to sign the Chilean forward but Wenger insists that he will not sell him at any cost to any other Premier League club.
Arsenal has a poor experience in selling players to another Premier League club, last time when they sold Robin van Persie to United in 2012 it turned out to be a big mistake as the Dutch striker helped United win the Premier League the very next season.
Wenger can’t afford to make that mistake and Sanchez is one of their stars, but his morale is down due to lack of Silverware.
Meanwhile, City boss Pep Guardiola has confirmed his interest in Sanchez and will try to reunite with him at Manchester City.
“I don’t think that I would sell him to any Premier League club, that is for sure.Why would i sell him to another Premier League club? You want to be as strong as you can be, and not strengthen the other teams.”
” Personally i think he will sign and stay here.Even if he doesn’t sign a new deal, I will make him stay”- Arsene Wenger said.
Manchester United, Chelsea and French giants PSG are also interested in him and its unlikely that Sanchez will wait till the end of his contract in 2018.
The 28-year-old Chilean striker is in hot form for the Gunners. He has already made 48 appearance in which he scored 25 goals and made 12 assists for his team.
