Alexis Sanchez has received a huge offer to swap North London for China, according to reports.
Sanchez has established himself as one of the Premier League’s best players and is reportedly demanding a huge salary package in his new deal to reflect his status as one of the best players in the league.
The forward is into the penultimate year of his contract and has been in talks with the club over a new deal. There have been multiple reports surrounding his future and the most recent one was the Standard Sports claim that the Chilean has demanded for a salary package of about £290,000 a week.
And now, the Daily Star claim the striker has received a huge £400,000 a week salary from a Chinese club.
The report claims Sanchez is using the reported offer from China as a bargaining chip in negotiations with Arsenal
It is unknown whether Arsenal will succumb to the striker’s demands or if he will swap North London for China at this point in his career. However, it will be interesting to find out.
Wenger recently claimed Sanchez’ decision to sign a new contract will not depend on money but it isn’t looking that way at the moment.
The player looks happy on the pitch, he is at a club where he is very important, a club that can challenge for titles so I don’t see any reason he has been reluctant to commit his future to us except financial reasons.
However, we will have to keep our fingers crossed and hope the forward eventually pens a new deal here at the Emirates as it will be a big blow if he doesn’t.
