The Chilean is understood to have put pen to paper on a whopping £450 000 (R7.61 million) a week contract that will keep him at the club until June 2022, according to the Daily Mail.

It has been claimed that Sanchez will take home a wage of £350 000 (R5.92 million) over a four and a half years, but the amount rises to £450 000 when his image rights are included.
