Arsene Wenger talked to the Press ahead of Arsenal’s next Premier League game against Crystal Palace, and when he was asked to comment on the whole Alexis Sanchez situation he seemed to believe that it’s the finances involved that are stalling the signing of a new contract with the Chile international.
I believe that basically he wants to stay at the club and it is down to finding an agreement with his agent. Finances are involved in it, yes
the French manager said, words that seem a bit surprising because Sanchez has hinted several times that it’s his ambition to be part of a winning team that leads him to making every important decision in his career.
Wenger was asked if he thinks that Sanchez wants to make sure that Arsenal will strengthen, before agreeing on a new deal, but he looked sure that this is not the case.
No, I think the players first have to see if they are happy at the club, and I think he is happy here. After that most of the time it is down to finding an agreement
Wenger insisted. It remains to be seen if his… perception of things is right or not.
