Euro Giants Ready To Offer £80m For Arsenal Star Alexis Sanchez
Paris Saint-Germain are ready to test Arsenal’s resolve with a whopping £80m offer for want-away attacker Alexis Sanchez this summer
Managers are now pressing ahead with their plans for the summer transfer window so we’ll bring you all the latest news and gossip from around the globe. Today, Paris Saint-Germain are set to make their move for Alexis Sanchez…
Paris Saint-Germain are ready to test Arsenal’s resolve with a whopping £80m offer for want-away attacker Alexis Sanchez this summer, according to the Independent.
Sanchez’s future has been the subject of much speculation this summer as he’s inside the final year of his contract and has made it clear he won’t be signing an extension any time soon.
Arsene Wenger insists the club have decided not to sell even if Sanchez doesn’t sign a new deal as they believe it’s worth getting at least another year out of him even it there’s a strong chance we’ll lose him for nothing in 12 months time.
However, it seems PSG aren’t ready to give up the chase just yet as the Independent claim the French giants are prepared to pay as much as £80m to secure Sanchez’s signature before the window closes at the end of the month.
The Ligue 1 outfit recently smashed the world record to sign Neymar from Barcelona but the newspaper says they still want to land Sanchez and are prepared to break the bank to prevent him joining Man City next summer.
I can understand Arsenal’s reluctance to do business with a domestic rival such as City but I personally think we’d be made to turn down £80m if PSG are prepared to pay that amount for a player who’ll be available for nothing in 12 months.
That’s an offer simply too good to turn down and Wenger could use that money, together with the remainder of his existing budget, to really strengthen the entire squad and we should be much stronger over-all.
Cashing-in to PSG would also stop Alexis from joining City but the problem is, the Chilean international is reportedly determined to link-up with Pep Guardiola’s side.
However, the Independent say PSG are ready to offer the 28-year-old £400,000-a-week in order to try and lure him to the Parc des Princes, which is a lot more than City are prepared to pay, so perhaps Sanchez’s head might be turned.
