Arsene Wenger admits his contract situation may have had a bad impact on the Arsenal dressing room

The Algeria global has stated his wish to leave the 2015/16 Premier League champions, but Wenger insists Arsenal do not need the winger and were never looking to land his signature.

Wenger said Sanchez would not have started against Leicester even if he wasn't injured.

Arsene Wenger revealed the news on Wednesday morning as the Gunners prepare for their first game of the new top-flight campaign, against Leicester City on Friday evening.

It would therefore appear that one more season with Arsenal and a free transfer next summer to the club of his choosing is now the most likely outcome for Sanchez.

Manchester City now lead the market as favourites to win the Premier League and it's not hard to see why with the additional quality they have added to an already brilliant squad.

The equalizer did come soon after, though, with new signing Harry Maguire heading a ball by the far post to the goal mouth, where Shinji Okazaki finished with a header of his own. "That is a continuation of what I said at the end of the season".

Speaking to Sky Sports News on Tuesday, Neville said: "I said last season that the title will come to Manchester and was badly wrong but I do feel it will be between City and United this time".

Manchester City and Bayern Munich are the two clubs most consistently linked with the 29-year-old, with the former, due to Pep Guardiola's presence, understood to appeal to Sanchez. "We are not open to any offers, anyway".

"I think what will be crucial will be their home form".

Despite having only played 45 minutes for the club in last week's friendly against Sampdoria, the £35million signing impressed throughout the whole match in sweltering Macedonia.

"It's a long time I didn't speak to Nasser, because it's certainly very busy to complete the transfer of Neymar and it's a long time that I didn't speak to him". The Champions league is really cool because it is a tournament that takes the top teams from all over Europe i.e. Italy, England, Spain, Germany and a few others to decided who the king of Europe is.

Pushed on whether he expected Al-Khelaifi to get in touch, he added: "No, no". West Ham's moves this offseason prove they are not going to be an easy win for the big clubs this year, and they have a chance to make a push for a spot in Europa League if things click.
