Big spender, Paris Saint Germain (PSG) is allegedly encouraging Arsenal ace, Alexis Sanchez to have a contract stand-off with his present club.
The Ligue 1 giant is convinced that they can convince the Chile international to play for them.
Reports from Maxifoot shared that PSG is already preparing a €70M move for the stellar striker.
Just recently, the squad acquired Julian Draxler from Wolfsburg. Arsenal is said to be interested in the young player as well, but the French outfit booted them out of the competition.
Reports have it that the said move was valued at more than €35M and it right now, it seems like they are sabotaging Arsenal’s plans again.
The interest from Sanchez stems from the fact that he only has 18 months left in his contract. Perhaps, it could be also said that it was triggered by the budding rift between Sanchez and his manager, Arsene Wenger.
Just recently, the club’s scoring machine expressed his frustration and disappointment with their even steven finish against the mid-table, Bournemouth.
PSG is trying to capitalize on this scenario, obviously.
The club’s Director of Football, Patrick Kluivert, who is a self-confessed admirer of Sanchez is said to have already coordinated with the player’s representatives.
Meanwhile, should he stay at Emirates, Sanchez is promised to have a £200,000 weekly salary.
However, an offer from the Chinese Super League could see Sanchez get twice of the above-mentioned amount.
Sanchez plays a crucial role in Arsenal’s attacking department. He has already delivered 13 goals for the team and six assists too.
Wenger said that Sanchez is committed to staying at Arsenal. However, he also emphasized that the club has a limit to the “amount” that they can pay.
