IT IS LAST BIG CONTRACT’ – WENGER SUGGESTS SANCHEZ IS JOINING MANCHESTER UNITED FOR MONEY

Wenger believes that the Chilean’s desire for a big pay-off meant there was no chance of keeping him at the Emirates Stadium

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has claimed they had “no chance” of keeping Alexis Sanchez and suggested the forward is chasing money by joining Manchester United.

The 29-year-old is expected to finalise his move to Old Trafford in the next 48 hours after apparently undergoing a medical on Sunday, with Henrikh Mkhitaryan heading to the Gunners in a straight swap deal.

Reports in England have said Sanchez could earn as much as £450,000 a week at United as part of a salary package that even Manchester City refused to match, despite their long-standing interest in the player.
