Sanchez “not for sale”, says Wenger

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has reiterated that the Gunners will not sell star forward Alexis Sanchez this summer.

Paris Saint-German and Manchester City are both keen on signing the Chile international, who has one year left on his Arsenal contract and is stalling on signing a new deal.

But Wenger says Arsenal will not sell the 28-year-old, who scored 30 goals and contributed 13 assists in all competitions last season.

“The decision has been made and we will stick to that. The decision is not to sell,” Wenger said.

Sanchez stated at the weekend that he wanted to play for a club that could “win the Champions League”, but Wenger insists that the two-time Copa America winner can fulfil his ambitions at the Emirates Stadium

“We played 20 years in the Champions League,” he continued.

“That’s 17 years before Sanchez arrived and three years with him, so he can get us back in there.”

The Frenchman also played down Sanchez’s comments about the Champions League, insisting that the player’s comments had been taken out of context.

“I don’t give too much importance to things that are translated, you know,” he added.

“The whole interview that I got didn’t really mean that.

“The main focus for us is to concentrate on the Premier League and the Premier League for me today is more important than the Champions League.”
