Arsenal offer top attacker contract worth £300000 a week

Arsenal offer top attacker contract worth £300000 a week

Sanchez has rejoined training with Arsenal but is not fit enough to face Leicester City in the opening game of the Premier League season on Friday night.

Sanchez has been tracked by Manchester City, his preferred destination, with a move to Paris Saint-Germain now looking less likely.

Now Sanchez is a hard choice - to sign the main contract of his life or go to another club who set themselves more ambitious goals.

The current contract Sanchez with Arsenal expires in the summer of 2018.

But Wenger said he had not heard from PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi and referred to French media reports suggesting PSG are more interested in signing Monaco's Kylian Mbappe. He was odds-on to leave, but now he is priced at 13/8 and he is rated at 4/9 to stay put.

"Sanchez will definitely not be available for Leicester", said the Arsenal boss.

Ozil and Sanchez weren't involved in Arsenal's win over Chelsea in the Community Shield last weekend.

And Wenger, while insisting Sanchez will not be sold, can't give a definitive answer whether he will still be playing at the Emirates after this season. He had a scan two days ago and he's out for a while.

"But we have all the other players prepared in pre-season and they are all ready".

He is now appealing against a two-month prison sentence for assaulting a police officer past year and, because of that conviction, was banned from entering the United Kingdom for PSG's Champions League fixture against Arsenal last season.

"He adds great value to the squad and I think as well he is a great lover of the club".

When asked if the club had any others for the Chilean, Wenger replied "I can not tell you that".

"When you are a football player you perform until the last day of your contract".

"I think we are not open to any offers anyway". They would look at it and ask why the club are selling him to a Premier League rival.
