Arsenal set to lose star player, European powerhouse offers mega deal
Arsenal may well have to say goodbye to one of their most prized assets in the January transfer window.
That is because the club are powerless to stop Alexis Sanchez from discussing deals with other clubs from January.
With the player out of contract in the summer window, he will be able to start looking for a new club from the January transfer window and there is no shortage of suitors after his signature.
Paris Saint Germain is one of those clubs and will do everything in their power to sign the Chilean and place him in an attack that already possesses Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.
The most interesting part of this is that they have a plan to beat all other clubs to his signature and it could well work.
That is that they will offer Alexis Sanchez a whopping £10million signing on fee, all of which will go into his back pocket to spend on whatever he likes.
That is a huge amount of money for any footballer to receive as a signing on fee and the player would no doubt be on one of the biggest wage packets in football which could well swing the pendulum in PSG’s favour.
Alexis Sanchez going to PSG would be like CP3 and Kobe if they've gotten to play together. If they lock him down it's over.— Kwmane Wilmore (@blackkaioken) October 1, 2017
Manchester City are another club who will look to sign the player either in the January transfer window or in the summer after a failed attempt late in the last summer window to sign the forward.
Pep Guardiola’s side nearly signed the player on deadline day when Arsenal finally broke and agreed to sell the player, only to be knocked back by the player they wanted to sign as his replacement, Thomas Lemar.
Even though there was a deal agreed between Monaco and Arsenal, the player did not want to make the move too soon and without much thought, so both that deal and the Alexis deal fell through much to the frustration of Guardiola.
It looks as though they will be Paris Saint Germain’s biggest rival for the player this summer and it could get very interesting in the January transfer window.
Fancy Arsenal as an outside bet for the Premier League title?
