Arsene Wenger talks transfers: Arsenal manager on Romelu Lukaku and Wayne Rooney
Sanchez has just 12 months left on his current contract and is unlikely to sign a new one if the Gunners miss out on Champions League football, as is now expected, when the Premier League season reaches its conclusion on Sunday. I know him for a long time. Chelsea, crowned champions last week, finished 10th previous year. When there was talk of Sanchez and Ozil wanting out, it coincided with Arsenal losing seven games in 12 and getting knocked out of the Champions League.
Sanchez is a big-money target for City, Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich and their hopes will increase if Arsenal miss out on the top four – they must beat Everton in Sunday;s finale while hoping already-relegated Middlesbrough take something off Liverpool at Anfield.
“If we have enough points, we deserve Champions League“.
Olivier Giroud will reportedly consider quitting Arsenal if manager Arsene Wenger revamps his strike-force during the summer transfer window.
“Of the season. yes”, he said. And so I would like to dedicate my time to something that is more interesting.
“After that, what happens to me is less important”.
“‘Look, ‘ I said to everyone, ‘let’s remember how this feels”.
Arsenal is in real danger of missing out on a top-four finish for the first time in 20 seasons under the Frenchman. Liverpool are then one point ahead of Arsenal, who host Everton. “That is when things will be finalised”, said Wenger, whose contract expires at the end of this season. And Chelsea will likely earn their place in history because their final game of the campaign comes against bottom-of-the-table-Sunderland. It depends on us. “We had the mentality to win at all costs and we won and we won well”. Liverpool hold it firmly in their grasp and if they play like they did in their 4-0 humiliation of an terrible West Ham United, then manager Jurgen Klopp will have achieved his aim of returning the club to Europe’s premier competition. “It would be the icing on the cake”, Klopp said. He warms to players who are particularly gifted with the ball – they are the core of his beliefs in football.
“One of them is, of course, what is happening with the manager, the future, the players who have to come in, the renewal of contracts”.
“We need to find a good balance and not have such different results and performances at home and away”.
His former club Chelsea are interested in a deal, while Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is also an admirer.
