Wenger: PSG want Neymar because they can’t get Sanchez

Arsene Wenger says that Paris Saint-Germain only want to sign Neymar because they could not get Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal.

Sanchez has been linked away from Arsenal all summer, with Wenger insisting that his star player will not be sold.

In recent days, Paris St Germain have been linked with a move for Neymar, although Gerard Pique appears to have silenced those rumours too.

Wenger says that the papers have moved onto Neymar because the Sanchez deal is not going to happen, and reiterated that Sanchez will stay.

“No, I don’t think he was in Paris,” Wenger said.

“No. Paris Saint Germain cannot get Sanchez so they go for Neymar.

“I read L’Equipe in the last three to four days and it has moved from Sanchez to Neymar.

“You know they are speaking about Neymar, a few days they were speaking about Sanchez. They need a subject to write about.

“My mind has been made up for a while now.

“I think I’ve made it clear a few times that he is not for sale and this is my stance.”
