Arsenal offered Sanchez and Ozil combined £30 million a year in salary.
Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil’s contract are expiring in 2018 and Arsenal would like to keep their star players at least till 2020.
Arsenal’s season are below par this season as they missed out on Champions League next season which means their star players could leave for better teams.
The Gunners won the FA Cup last weekend and their manager, Arsene Wenger has become the manager who won the most FA Cup in the history of the tournament.
Although they manage to clinch the vital FA Cup over Chelsea, it will be a tough task to keep both the players as the future of Wenger is unsure yet.
Arsenal will have a board meeting where topics of Arsene’s future and the Sanchez, Ozil situation will be brought up as well.
The manager has utmost confidence that he is the right man for the club but have some issue with Arsenal chief, Ivan Gazidis.
Wenger wants to manage the club and have all the control on how the clubs are running include players transfers.
This makes a lot of sense when the club have huge budget every year for the manager to spend but he is unwilling to splash it on good players.
Even though, he spent quite a fortune to land Ozil and Sanchez, there are times they comes close to signing Suarez, Higuain and because of Wenger unwilling to give extra, the transfer was scuppered everytime.
It’s a huge frustration for Arsenal fans because the club has huge reputation across Europe and good players would like to come to London but because of price tag, and wage issues, Arsenal may not be their first choice.
The board meeting will be on Tuesday and hopefully we get to know if #WengerIn or #WengerOut
