Arsene Wenger: 'Alexis Sanchez situation is ideal'

"Mbappe's £100m-plus price tag and Real Madrid's interest in him has always made Sanchez the more attainable target in the eyes of City's hierarchy - even if they have steadfastly refused to drop out of the race for Monaco's teenage sensation. I think it's an ideal situation because everyone has to perform".

"Does it change if you have one year or two years to go?"

"In the future I think you will see more often players going to the end of their contracts", he said.

To put that claim into perspective, only 19 players have ever been transferred for £50m or more, and none of those players were in the final year of their contract.

"Nobody knows that Sanchez won't extend his contract here".

Germany defender Shkodran Mustafi, who also missed Arsenal's tour after Confederations Cup duty, is scheduled to return to training alongside Sanchez. To make matters worse for the North London club, the player has less than 12 months remaining on his current deal, with little progress over a renewal.

Why on earth would he sign a new £280,000-a-week deal when European giants are lining up to buy him for £50m? "Any individual player does not impact the situation of all the players".

Asked later about the apparent confrontation with the fan, Wenger laughed it off. He said: "He looked like he wanted to talk to me".

According to the same article, Arsenal are prepared to compromise on the situation by offering Sanchez a one-year contract worth £300,000 a week, before reviewing their position next summer. City could spend around £200m if they add Alexis Sanchez and another central defender to their squad, and PSG would reach a similar figure if they manage to bring in Neymar from Barcelona. "We will all go one day and Arsenal, hopefully, will go on".

Chelsea are eager to pounce on unsettled Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

"Yes of course [I think he will stay]. How many times do I have to tell you?" he added.

One player, who hasn't been necessarily linked with multiple moves away from Arsenal, despite entering the final year of his contract, though, is Ozil, with the feeling being the Germany international will sign a new deal with the club. We pressured them well in the first half and had more control after the break, creating chances.
