Alexis Sanchez is the talking point of the day for Arsenal (as usual), so we thought we’d give you a round-up of the latest speculation.
Manchester City were recently named as the only concrete interest in his signature by the Chilean forward’s representatives, and now Don Balon are claiming that they have increased their offer from around £44 Million, up to £60 Million.
Pep Guardiola’s side remain as the favourites to sign the former Barcelona star, despite consistent statements by Arsene Wenger ruling out a switch to a Premier League rival, although his destination in 12 months time will be out of our hands.
Alexis is allowed to leave the club on a free transfer at the end of next term unless we can manage to tie him down to a new contract, or sell him prior to the end of next season of course.
There is also reports that Dani Alves and new World’s most expensive player Neymar are trying to convince him to join their revolution with Paris Saint-Germain.
The French giants seem likely to be unable to complete a move this month due to UEFA’s Financial Fair Play Regulations, having already splashed a whopping €222 Million on the Brazilian superstar from Barcelona.
We are claimed to have offered to break the bank by giving him a £300,000 per week contract, a wage previously unheard of in North-London, but there is no inclination as to whether he would be willing to sign.
Last term Sanchez claimed that the ball was in our court as per negotiations, seeming to tell us that he would extend his contract if his asking wage was met, although the specifications of said demands remain unknown.
Will Alexis stay beyond the current window? Could Arsenal still sell to City?
