But sometimes there are special cases,’ Wenger said at the Laureus World Sports Awards.‘Most of the time now we think when we sign a player for five years we have a good player for five years. But that doesn’t necessarily mean that they practice, they play their best. Because they might be in their comfort zone.More: FootballBruno Fernandes responds to Man Utd bust-up rumours with Ole Gunnar SolskjaerNew Manchester United signing Facundo Pellistri responds to Edinson Cavani praiseArsenal flop Denis Suarez delivers verdict on Thomas Partey and Lucas Torreira moves‘He has a contract but the problem is that if you want to buy a player like him you have to spend £100m.‘And to maintain the value of the player, beyond the Ozil case, it is more about the way football is structured.‘To buy players of top, top quality you need £100m.
