Arsenal ace ready for contract decision ahead of new Premier League season

"I was always against it", he said ahead of Arsenal's Community Shield meeting with Chelsea on Sunday.

The Gunners missed out on Champions League football after finishing fifth last season, but Jose Mourinho's United side - who finished sixth - qualified for the elite competition after lifting the 2016-17 Europa League trophy.

Sanchez returned to training at Arsenal last week and looks set to stay at the Emirates Stadium, although it is unclear if he will sign a new contract.

Arsenal hosts Leicester City on Friday night in the opening game of the new season, with new options available to Wenger for his starting line-up.

Sanchez isn't the only first team player nearing the end of his current Arsenal contract.

Iran has repeatedly said that it is not seeking to develop nuclear weapons and is not in violation of the resolution . On Tuesday, Secretary Tillerson left that option open.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger expects Alexis Sanchez to "respect" his decision not to allow the Chilean forward to leave the club, he said yesterday. The Reds have enjoyed a long-running and intense rivalry with Arsenal down the years, with both clubs being ever-present for the Premier League's 25 seasons so far.

After a commemoration of that sad event, the royalty, pomp and circumstance before and after the match make this more special than the normal Premier League match.

Wenger explained: "I left them all out because some are short of preparation, like Alexis". And in the wake of such comments, the Gunners have intensified their pursuit for a wide attacker, with Riyad Mahrez and Thomas Lemar the two priority options. I had him on text saying he'd come back as soon as possible.

"Lacazette is stronger every week and I believe today is the first time you see physically he's ready", he said. The Dutchman won the title in his first season at Old Trafford and went on to score 58 goals in 105 appearances before his 2015 departure. Wenger might consider a sale outside the Premier League, but Bayern appear to be done signing players and PSG are about to turn the football world upside down with their outrageous acquisition of Neymar.

"I would have loved to play in the Champions League, but we have to deal with the reality that we are not in it", Wenger told reporters on Thursday.
