Wenger calls for an end to Arsenal sales to Man City
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has admitted the Gunners must stop selling their best assets to Manchester City if the North London club hope to compete with Roberto Mancini’s side at the top of the Premier League, the Daily Mail has reported.
Over the last few seasons Emmanuel Adebayor, Kolo Toure, Gael Clichy and Samir Nasri have all swapped the Emirates Stadium for the Etihad Stadium, while rumours persist that Arsenal captain Robin van Persie will be the next to head north, particularly as the Dutch forward’s contract is due to expire next summer and a new deal has yet to be agreed. City also have former Arsenal captain Patrick Vieira as an executive after the French World Cup winner ended his playing career with a spell at the club.
Wenger is quoted by the Mail as saying: "They have enough players now. Am I flattered? More worried. But it is a little bit of a normal process." The two sides meet in the Premier League on Sunday with 13 points separating second-place City from Arsenal in third.
