Paris St. Germain have offered Alexis Sanchez a £10m bonus to sign a pre-contract agreement with them, according to reports, while AC Milan are ready to spend £75m to sign him in January.
Alexis can talk with non-English clubs in January, as he’ll only have six months remaining on his current Arsenal contract.
According to the Express, Paris St. Germain are hoping to take advantage of that by offering the Chilean a £10m incentive to join them over Manchester City.
City, Manchester United, Chelsea and Real Madrid are also thought to be interested.
The Daily Star report that AC Milan are also interested and could bid £75m to sign him in January.
Given that Milan could sign him for free if they just wait until the end of the season, that reports seems very, very doubtful.
Even the biggest spending clubs will exercise some common sense when its needed.
Arsenal haven’t given up on Alexis signing a contract extension, although if we’re being realistic that’s unlikely to happen.
Alexis almost joined City on the final day of the summer transfer window, but Arsenal’s failure to sign Monaco’s Thomas Lemar meant the deal didn’t go ahead.
He has since returned to the Arsenal starting line-up and has played a part in our improved form.
