Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has said that the football club is unlikely to change its wage policy to retain the services of Chilean star Alexis Sanchez.
Wenger, 67, who has spent 21 years at the club, said there were fans who were in favour of increasing the pay of Sanchez, and those who were not, but experience suggested to him that the club would not like to land itself in trouble.
He said any decision made would have to be based on objectivity and the understanding that the club would always come first.
"Even for important players, you can only pay as much as you can afford," Sport24 quoted Wenger, as saying.
Sanchez has scored 22 goals this season and set up 17 others earning himself a nomination for the Professional Footballer's Association (PFA) Player of the Year Award.
