But Wenger reiterated his stance that this is the new normal because of inflated transfer fees that make it more profitable for players to run down their contracts and then ask for massive signing fees and wages from their new club instead.
At a general level, what I can say is that myself and the Manchester United board, we do not believe a lot in the January market.
Wenger said: "Of course I want a quick resolution". He's a great talent but whether he deserves a long contract having missed so much football is debatable, so I understand why Arsenal would be nervous about that.

They'll also get far less money, if any, for both players than they would have done had they sold the pair in the summer. "Maybe you ask Arsenal, they decide his future". I am not going [to speak about it]. Have I ever walked away (from a contract)? I am fully committed in this and I am happy in what I am doing now and what I did in the past. It shows you that there is no one at the top of the club making the decisions that need to be made. Do I stay for one year or 10 years, it's exactly the same.
