Stay Away From Sanchez And Ozil I Am Not Selling Them – Wenger Warns Chelsea
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez will remain at the club for ‘at least’ the next 18 months, regardless of their ongoing contract negotiations with the club.
The duo are both out of contract at the end of next season and the club have been locked in negotiations with the pair over new deals.
Ozil, 28, is closer to a new deal than Sanchez and the Chilean’s resistance towards extending his contract has alerted the attention of Premier League rivals Chelsea.
Antonio Conte’s side are thought to be watching Sanchez’s situation closely but Wenger’s warned potential suitors that he will block any move for his star duo over the next 18 months.
Sanchez and Ozil have 18 months to run on their existing deals Wenger sends warning to Chelsea over Sanchez interest
’18 months is quite long in football you know,’ Wenger said in a press conference this morning.
‘They have 18 months contract and are completely committed and will do well as long as they are here. Beyond that we will try to extend their contract.
‘No matter what happens they will stay 18 months, and hopefully much longer.
‘But I can’t make a subject of that in every press conference. The less you talk about it the better it is.
‘At some stage you have to accept negotiations are private and secret, we don’t have to come out every day to explain everything. We are professionals, we’ll work until the last day of our contracts.’
