PSG can not get Sanchez so they go for Neymar – Wenger

Arsene Wenger says Paris Saint-Germain are wanting to invest in Neymar from Barcelona as they cannot sign Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal.
PSG are reportedly prepared to meet Neymar’s €222million release clause to sign the Brazilian superstar, despite the fact that Gerard Pique went on social media on Sunday to say his team-mate was staying.
With Sanchez getting into the final season of his contract and seemingly unwilling to sign a renewal in the Emirates Stadium, PSG have already been among his mooted suitors.
But a defiant Wenger continues to insist Arsenal will hold onto the Chile international – who was reportedly noticed in Paris this week – and threat losing him for nothing when his deal expires within a year’s time.
“No, I never assume he was in Paris. No,” Wenger said. “Paris Saint-Germain can not get Sanchez so they go for Neymar.
“I read L’Equipe within the final three or 4 days. It has moved from Sanchez to Neymar. Right now they speak about Neymar, 3 days ago they speak about Alexis. They have to have too, like you [reporters], subjects.
“My mind has been produced up to get a when now. I think I’ve produced it clear a few times that he is not for sale and this can be my stance.”
Arsenal are amongst the clubs to possess been linked with a world-record move for teenage sensation Kylian Mbappe, who Monaco have complained has been the topic of illegal approaches.
And Wenger is clear that the ‘tapping-up’ of top players including Mbappe and Sanchez is rife within the football world.
“Honestly, it [illegal approaches] is actually a problem, I never deny that,” Wenger stated. “But is there a realistic technique to fight against it? That’s the question that I ask.
“We’ve fought against this for 20 years however it still takes place. How can you check when an agent meets a director from a different club or which player speaks to who?
“It occurs on a daily basis. Monaco do it also! Ultimately they sell their players to the clubs who they complain against. I do not know what we need to have to complete truly for the reason that nobody has located the proper remedy. But we know it happens and we know in the job that one of the sources of information and facts comes from agents.
“We are respectful together with the clubs. We ask them what they wish to do and if they don’t wish to sell then we never insist. For some, that is certainly exactly where the distinction is. Once the club says no, some say: ‘ok, we respect that’. And a few continue and don’t take no for an answer. That perhaps is where Monaco complained. Should you have top rated players you can not quit it from taking place. It really is frustrating but you’ve got to fight against it.”
