Arsene Wenger reveals where Alexis Sanchez will be playing next season
Arsene Wenger has said that he believes Alexis Sanchez will stay at Arsenal and sign a new contract.
He has also ruled out the possibility that the Chilean will be sold to another Premier League club.
Wenger said: “I personally think he will stay and sign. First of all he is happy here, his desire is to stay, and that is what I deeply believe.
“Yes. I don’t think that we would sell him to any Premier League club, that is for sure. Why not? The question is why would you sell him to another club?
“You want to be as strong as you can be and not strengthen the other teams.
“But as I have said, I think he will stay and sign a contract. The disagreements are more purely contractual, not about the desire.
“Both parties have the desire to find an agreement so I think it will happen.”
Sanchez has been linked with just about every one of Europe’s biggest clubs, but Wenger seems as confident as ever of keeping his star.
Alexis’ body language seems to have changed over the past few games. After the Middlesbrough game in particular he was looking overjoyed with the win.
If Arsenal can hold on to Alexis and Mesut Ozil while adding another top quality player or two, Arsenal will be in a very good position heading into next season.
