As the January transfer window gets closer by the day, there is speculation that Manchester City are still interested in signing Alexis Sanchez, however Arsene Wenger doesn’t see the Chilean joining The Citizens come January.
Wenger believes that his star player will stay at the Emirates until the end of his contract which runs out next summer. A new contract might not be on the table at the moment but letting him go in January is not an option for Wenger and Arsenal.
In the pre-match press conference before the game against City, Wenger rubbished talk about people questioning the 54 goal striker’s commitment to the club via Goal:
“I expect him to be motivated against City but that is always the case. One thing you cannot fault in Alexis Sanchez is his motivation. When he plays for Chile, he plays with passion that is in South America. You say everybody thinks City will come in for Alexis – I am part of everybody and I don’t think he will go. Do City need him? They have to decide that, but we need him here…”
Arsenal lost to Man City 3-1 and we will have to bounce back the weekend after next when we face Spurs at The Emirates and Sanchez will be hoping to add to his single goal so far in the league and get on over on the old enemy.
