Arsene Wenger has confirmed that he has left Alexis Sanchez out of the Arsenal squad for today’s game with Bournemouth while the striker decides his future.
The Chile international is understood to be weighing up offers from both Manchester City and Manchester United with reports this morning claiming he’s more likely to move to Old Trafford.
It’s claimed that Jose Mourinho is willing to pay Sanchez £400,000 a week, a figure that dwarfs his current earnings at the Emirates.
Speaking to Sky Sports on arrival at the Vitality Stadium, Wenger explained: “He’s being vague at the moment. His situation is not completely decided, one way or the other so I left him at home.
Asked whether a decision about where the player will go is imminent, he added: “Yes, don’t read too much into it because even I don’t know which way it will go.”
