Arsenal make Alexis Sanchez a huge offer that would make him highest paid player in Premier League history
Arsenal will make Alexis Sanchez the highest paid player in Premier League history if he accepts their latest offer.
According to the reliable James Olley, Arsenal have offered the Chilean a huge £300k per week deal to stay at the Emirates.
That would exceed the current mark of £290k per week of set by Paul Pogba.
It seems like one last big push to try and convince the forward to stay at the club.
Not too long ago it seemed that a deal was all but dead, but recent comments from Arsene Wenger and the player himself have made it seem like him staying is in fact a possibility.
I’m not entirely sure this will keep him at Arsenal. It may be other factors that mean he still wants to leave.
It also brings about issues where this sort of deal sets a precedent for future negotiations, but the cost of replacing Alexis when you factor in the transfer fee and wages would far exceed the cost of this deal.
