Arsenal’s contract rebel Alexis Sanchez can earn an extra £60,000-a-week by snubbing Manchester City for Manchester United.
It is reportedly desperate Manchester United boss Mourinho will “fight” to land the Arsenal contract rebel this month. The Special One is planning to hijack the striker’s move to City by offering Sanchez whopping £350,000-a-week wages and a £25million signing-on fee. Mourinho will also pay Arsenal £30m and Sanchez’s agent £5m fees Guardiola refuses to cough up.
- Normally investment in the squad is made in the summer. We build a squad with this idea, this philosophy I share with the club’s owners.But if there is a fantastic opportunity on the table, you fight for that. If it happens, it happens. If it doesn’t, it doesn’t, said Mourinho.
The Gunners are demanding £35m for 29-year-old although he has his heart set on a reunion with his old Barcelona boss Pep, City is only prepared to offer a £20m transfer fee and £290,000-a-week salary.
