Arsene Wenger Has Dig At Alexis Sanchez Amid Manchester United Move?
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger appeared to have a dig at Chile international Alexis Sanchez amid his expected transfer to Manchester United.
The Frenchman has seemingly hinted that he believes the 29-year-old is leaving the Emirates for Old Trafford for one last big pay cheque.
"I cannot understand anybody wanting to leave Arsenal. But in 30 years of doing transfers, you learn a lot about human beings," Wenger said, as quoted by the Daily Mirror.
"As a professional, it was perhaps his last contract at the top level and an important contract. After that, I accept that because we accepted that we would let him go. After that, we analyse the pros and the cons.
"We did what we tried to do and went as far as we could. Even Manchester City moved out of it in the end. That tells you we had no chance to give him a contract."
Sanchez has made 22 appearances for the Gunners so far this season, scoring eight goals and assisting four further strikes.
