Reports: Neymar & Dani Alves Trying To Convince Arsenal Star To Join Paris Saint-Germain
Dani Alves and Neymar have reportedly contacted an Arsenal star in order to try to convince him to join Paris Saint-Germain.
According to Chilean publication El Mercurio, the Brazilian stars are trying to get their former FC Barcelona teammate Alexis Sanchez to join them in France.
The Chile international is currently in the last year of his contract with Arsenal and has not signed an extension, despite having one on the table.
The Ligue 1 giants are apparently willing to offer the Gunners about £50 million (R863 million) for the player, a fee not many other clubs would be willing to pay for someone who is in the last 12 months of his contract.
PSG are also said to be willing to pay the Chilean £236 000 (R4 million) a week, according to El Mercurio, which is more than what he would be earning at the London club.
The 28-year-old is said to be ready to leave the Premier League side, and Alves and Neymar apparently feel that PSG would be the perfect fit for him.
English side Manchester City have also been linked with Sanchez for quite some time, but have not put a formal bid in for the player just yet.
Sanchez did not play against Chelsea in the Community Shield on Saturday, and is expected to miss the Gunners' first fixture of the EPL season, against Leicester City, too.
