Alexis Sanchez is said to have agreed personal terms with Manchester United
He is set to become the highest-paid player in Britain
29-year-old Chile and Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez has agreed to join Man United and is set to earn around 500,000 euros a week on a four-and-a-half year contract.
The Chilean is said to have agreed personal terms with Man United, who seem to have convinced him not to join Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City and probably win the Premier League.
According to the papers, he is set to become the highest paid professional footballer in British history, earning around 118 million euros in a year.
It is said that Sanchez could make his debut for the Red Devils on Saturday when they travel to Turf Moor to face Sean Dyche’s in-form Burnley.
The deal, however, will be finalized if only Armenia player of the year Henrikh Mkhitaryan agrees to join Arsenal. He is said to be demanding a whopping 170,000 a week which will see him become Arsenal’s best-paid player in history.
Sanchez was spotted in London walking on the streets and appeared to have a new clean haircut ahead of an impending Man United deal.
