Monaco Broke Their Word On Anthony Martial Sale – Arsene Wenger
It has been reported that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has accused AS Monaco of breaking their word over the sale of Anthony Martial.
The Gunners boss did not submit an offer for the Manchester United striker this summer after being told that no price would lure him away from the principality.
“I was surprised they sold him,” Wenger said. “The amount of money was massive. I believe that you could think that, if you are Monaco, you could have sold him as well next season.
“So I thought they would not sell him this year because they sold many other players.
“I thought they would maintain their word. He was not sellable. He was not on the list. He was one of the players Monaco did not want to sell, so we never made an approach for him.
“Only an acceptable amount of money after could do it. We always liked him, even when he was in Lyons.”
