Sanchez staying a Gunner 'for at least another season'


By Robert Jones

Arsene Wenger has once again insisted that Alexis Sanchez will not leave Arsenal this summer. The Chilean is anxious to leave the club with a reunion with former boss Pep Guardiola and Manchester City his preferred choice while Paris Saint-Germain are long-term admirers.

With only one year remaining on his current deal the Gunners risk losing their star man for nothing in a year's time with fresh terms in the region of £300,000-per-week swiftly rejected.

Wenger said: "The frame of mind of a footballer is quite easy - once you go out into the game, you focus on that. He is focused. My decision is clear, he will stay. He will accept that. I think he will be here for this season. If we manage to do it for more seasons we will."

Meanwhile, Leicester City have signed striker Kelechi Iheanacho from Manchester City for a fee understood to be £25million.
