Wenger promises £60-70m signing to replace Sanchez

Wenger promises £60-70m signing to replace Sanchez”

But the deal fell through and now Alexis is on the global duty.

Speaking to BeIN Sports, Arsene Wenger says Arsenal have sacrificed to 60 to 70 million pounds by not selling Alexis this past summer.

There were some notable non-movers when the summer transfer window came to a close last week, with Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez, Liverpool's Philippe Coutinho and Leicester's Riyad Mahrez among those for whom no deal materialised.

Despite plenty of speculation, and with just one year left on his contract, Arsenal eventually kept hold of Sanchez.

"And worst of all is that no one realises how that makes you feel.I wear Chile's number 7 jersey and that brings an enormous responsibility, that is why I'm sad that journalists and bad people criticise without knowing".

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has always said he is willing to run the risk of that happening, but he may have a change of heart and decide to recoup some cash in January, depending on how well the Gunners are doing.

"All the clubs, because the transfer market has gone up so much, do not want to pay so high prices for all the transfers for players who are good, but will not change their life".

He has since been unable to prevent Chile's 2018 World Cup hopes from taking a significant hit with consecutive Conmebol qualifying defeats to Paraguay and Bolivia and recently took to social media to declare his frustration.

Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez has issued a long message on Instagram saying he is "tired" of the criticism he receives when on worldwide duty with Chile. "You get exhausted of those who want you to lose, you get exhausted of saying to yourself "I'll get up again" after crying after a defeat". "I give you one example, no matter how well you work as a football coach, Dembele last year was €15m, this year €150m".
