Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger admits he is prepared to accept the departure of some of his key players in the summer, but in the meantime he is firmly focused on Champions League glory.

Arsenal face Barcelona in Wednesday’s final in Paris – potentially the last game for Thierry Henry, Ashley Cole and Robert Pires.

“That is not decided and we will cope with all that,” said Wenger.

“The important thing is we go together to Paris, win the trophy and then what happens, we will cope with it.”

Striker Henry has been tipped for a move to fellow Champions League finalists Barcelona and defender Cole has been linked to Real Madrid.

Pires, who has only been offered a one-year extension to his Gunners contract, has been offered a two-year deal by Villarreal, will make a decision over his future after the Paris final.

However, Wenger’s focus is the clash with Barcelona.

“What is important is not what will happen in one month or two months but what we achieve together, said Wenger.

“We have prepared the present and the future.

“The future is ahead of schedule, that’s the only thing I can say. The players have shown that during the season.

“I feel on an occasion like this what is important is winning the trophy,” he said.

“You don’t care what happens the next day or the day after but on the day you want to bring back the trophy.”

Wenger is keen not to place too much pressure on talsimanic skipper Henry.

“Of course, the big players like him and Ronaldinho or Eto’o will be under pressure to perform,” he added.

“What happens in this sort of game is that people will always compare but I do not want too much pressure on Thierry.

“If we play well as a team, which I’m convinced we will, Thierry will automatically be very good.

“If we do not play well as a team Thierry will suffer – and we have seen that against Villarreal away from home, where the team refused to play and where we suffered offensively.

“So my main concern is that the team plays its game then I am not worried about Thierry.”
