Arsenal fans will be delighted to hear that the club is reportedly putting its money where its mouth is by offering their star player, Alexis Sanchez, a contract which will break all previous records at the Premier League outfit.
British media outlet, The Evening Standard, reports;
Alexis Sanchez offered new £300,000 a week deal as Arsenal break the bank to make him top flight’s highest earner
Sanchez has been a revelation since he joined Arsenal from Barcelona in the summer of 2014 to the delight of most Gunners fans.
Although he was inconsistent at Barca it’s still a mystery why they disposed of him so quickly and he’s gone on to be Arsenal’s best player by a country mile.
Over three seasons Sanchez has scored 64 goals in 134 games and offers blistering pace and ball control to get his side on the front foot and terrify the opposition.
With 22 goals in 40 games this season the Chilean international is once more Arsenal’s leading scorer and his goals and general output would be hard to replace.
While Mesut Ozil can blow hot and cold – especially in the big games – Sanchez always puts in a magnificent shift even if he is not having one of his most inspired days.
TFF thinks that he’s well worth the money and that the club would have to shell out far more money in transfer fees alone in any attempts to replace him with commensurate quality.
All the top clubs in England and Europe will be watching this story with interest. Because the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea and PSG can offer similar wages but perhaps more ambition.
Gunners fans: how confident are you of keeping him?
