Perhaps a case of tapping up of the finest order?
Alexis Sanchez has been told to snub Manchester City for PSG – by former Barcelona team-mates Neymar and Dani Alves.
The Arsenal striker missed the weekend’s Community Shield victory over Chelsea and looks set to leave this summer — with several clubs fighting for his signature.
Chilean news outlet El Mercurio claims Sanchez’s two former team-mates at Barcelona have spoken him about a move PSG, who are reportedly willing to pay the Gunners £50million for a player whose contract runs out next summer.
While the Ligue 1 side will offer him a deal worth around £236,000-a-week.
Manchester City are among the frontrunners in the battle for the Chilean, with Pep Guardiola keen on adding him to his side’s exciting attack line, while Barcelona and even Chelsea are also interested.
But, with titles being a motivating factor in Sanchez’s decision over his next move, the Parisian giants’ summer ambition makes them a very appealing option.
Alves was the 28-year-old’s closest friend at Barcelona, while he spent a season playing alongside Neymar in attack before leaving to join Arsenal.
Arsene Wenger is adamant he will not sell his star striker but, with just one year remaining on his contract, he risks losing him for nothing next summer.
Sanchez is desperate to win the highest honours — with a maiden Champions League medal his burning desire.
A fifth-place finish last season means Arsenal will start next season in the Europa League.
