Alexis Sanchez has not told Arsene Wenger he wants to leave the club, says the Gunners boss who “expects” the Chile striker to see out his contract.
The 28-year-old has one year left on his deal at the Emirates.
However, it has been reported that Sanchez has said he wants to join Arsenal’s Premier League rivals Manchester City.
Asked whether Sanchez had told him that he wanted to leave the club, the Frenchman said: “No.”
Wenger added: “The players have contracts and we expect them to respect their contracts. That’s what we want.”
Sanchez joined Arsenal from Barcelona for about £35m in the summer of 2014.
