There are still numerous Arsenal transfer rumours regarding the possibility of Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez leaving the club in January, but surely everyone knows that Wenger has no intention of letting either of them leave before the end of their contracts. All summer The Boss made it clear they wouldn’t be sold and, despite the thousands of rumours to the contrary, of course he was proved right.
This season Wenger has always maintained that the superstar duo will be here until the summer, in fact just last week he was asked about if they would be staying and he replied: “Yes, I rule it out.
“I do not think every day about that. At the moment I think, as long as they are here, they have to give their best for the team and for the club.
“In my head, they stay until the end of the season.
“That was the decision taken at the start of the season – unless something unbelievable happens, I don’t think it should change.
“They are going into the final year of their contract.
“Will they stay longer? That is impossible to answer today but they have a contract until the end of the season.”
He can’t get more categorically certain than that, can he? But the rumours persist as the media desperately need to continually make headlines every day, and I have spotted an opportunity to make money on these facts. I have noticed that Unibet are offering prices on if they will still be at Arsenal after the January window, and if you combine the two prices (Alexis at 3/4 and Ozil at 1/4) you can more than double your money! For 100 GBP you could collect 218 GBP in February. This looks like a licence to print money to me!
