Wenger: I could manage an worldwide team

However, much to everyone's surprise, the Frenchman was awarded a new two-year deal, taking his stay in North London to nearly 23 years if he sees out his contract.

Arsène Wenger has revealed that he will discuss his future with the Arsenal board at the end of the season, in an exclusive interview with beIN SPORTS.

For now, Wenger says he enjoys the constant interaction and work that comes with managing at a club rather than global level, so he is likely to see out his contract at Arsenal.

Pep Guardiola was desperate to sign the Chile global last summer and, though Arsenal eventually came round to the idea of selling Sanchez, the Gunners failed to reach a deal for Thomas Lemar from Monaco and that killed the move.

"Maybe one day I will do it at some stage but until now I like to be involved every day in the life of a club because the real test is there", he said.

Gazzetta state they'll have to beat Arsenal to it, and with the Gunners unlikely to make a managerial change midway through the season, they might just do that.

Arsenal did finish second in the league in 2016, but only thanks to a late implosion from rival club Tottenham Hotspur-Wenger's team was too slow for Claudio Ranieri's champion Leicester City. "I will stay in football of course".

However, City remain interested and can expect to pay substantially less for Sanchez given his contract runs out at the end of the season.

"I haven't decided but it is a fact that my life is linked with football", he said. I don't know [if] as a director, as a manager - as long as possible as a manager.
