Wenger insisted if he “had his time again" then he would have allowed Sanchez to join Manchester City after they made a mega bid on deadline day last August.
Gunners manager Wenger also claimed that Sanchez has joined Manchester United for a contract worth even MORE than £600,000-a-week.
When quizzed whether the deal was as much as the £600,000-a-week as had been reported, Wenger pointed to the ceiling as if to signify it was worth even more.
The Mirror says Wenger made the remarks during a Q&A session for the club's executive box holders and was careful not to use the word regret. But he suggested it was difficult to keep an unhappy player.
