Arsene Wenger is adamant Arsenal want to hang on to their best players following renewed speculation concerning the future of captain Cesc Fabregas.
Influential midfielder Fabregas was chased by former club Barcelona for much of last summer, but ultimately stayed at Emirates Stadium.
However, the Gunners' likely failure to win any silverware again this season has prompted fresh doubts about Fabregas' future in North London.
Speculation recently claimed that Italian giants Inter Milan are lining up a £35million bid to prise the Spain World Cup winner away from Arsenal.
However, ahead of Sunday's showdown with Premier League leaders Manchester United, Wenger dismissed the latest stories concerning his players.
Wenger feels he has addressed the issue on numerous occasions in the past and reaffirmed his position that he does not want to offload his key men.
"We do not want to sell our players," said Wenger. "Our players have contracts and they will stay here unless we decide otherwise.
"This is a subject that is not creative, we have answered it in 80% of press conferences. This is a subject that has to stop because the past has shown the question is useless.
"I do not want to go on about the transfer market now, and whether we will buy or not buy."
