Alexis Sanchez Arsenal exit closer than ever as he leaves the country for secret talks

Chile international arrived for talks in the French capital on Friday - but the Ligue 1 side must still convince Gunners to do business

Real cloak and dagger stuff this.

Alexis Sanchez has held secret talks with PSG at a plush Paris hotel ahead of a possible move to the Ligue 1 club.

The Arsenal star was at the five-star Royal Monceau Raffles to meet with PSG’s sporting director Antero Henrique.

Senior sources in the French capital have confirmed that Sanchez arrived by limousine at the £600-a-night hotel this afternoon.

Henrique was then spotted leaving the hotel later on Friday.

The source added: “His (Sanchez) business here is confidential, but we are very used to having superstar footballers staying.”

PSG want to land Sanchez and Neymar to turn them into a major Champions League force.

Arsenal had hoped to persuade him to stay by offering a mega £275,000-a-week deal.

The forward has been on holiday with family mulling over his next move.

But with Arsenal yet to agree a fee for the 28-year-old, a deal still appears some way off.

PSG are said to be close to tabling a £70million offer for Sanchez, who is desperate to play in the Champions League.

Arsene Wenger insists Sanchez will be staying put, but Man City are also keen and may be willing to match an offer from the French giants.

But boss Wenger  is adamant he will remain an Arsenal player.

He has said: “The decision has been made and we will stick to that.

“The decision is not to sell.”
