The Arsenal fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are pretty relieved about this…
Amidst an impressive start to the 2016/17 season, there has been one overarching concern for the Arsenal fans in the Tavern.
The contract situation surrounding both Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez is quickly becoming a serious concern for those in attendance – with duo still yet to renew their contracts with Arsenal.
However, in light of these reports – Arsene Wenger has seen fit to deny that either of them will be sold.
Wenger said: “No matter what happens they will stay for 18 months and hopefully for much longer”
He continued: “We are professionals – 18 months is a long time in the game and I don’t believe that is a problem.”
No doubts from Arsene Wenger there – he seems completely committed to the idea of keeping hold of the pair.
Whilst the fact that they will be staying has come as good news to the Arsenal fans in attendance – there is still a very real concern that losing the pair on a free would be a disastrous move. They are in the upper echelon when it comes to European stars – and to release them without a transfer fee would be a financial nightmare.
Our landlord is still backing Wenger to thrash out a new deal with both of them, though.
