Alexis Sanchez close to contract agreement with PSG

Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez is close to agreeing contractual terms with PSG ahead of a possible move, according to L’Équipe.

PSG Sporting Director Antero Henrique was in London for two days this week notably for talks relating to Sanchez. Two main sticking points so far in terms of contract negotiations: PSG want to sign the player to a long-term contract, Sanchez’s camp only want a 3-year deal with Les Parisiens. A 4-year-deal will likely be the compromise that is reached.

Sanchez’s salary demands, €16m net a year, are also very elevated in PSG’s view, but the capital club are still willing to make Alexis one of the club’s top earners. The two main sticking points at the beginning of the week have almost entirely been resolved – a contract agreement between PSG & Sanchez appears to be imminent.

Les Parisiens will then have to convince Arsenal to sell the player, which will not be easy, but helped by the fact that PSG are not a direct Premier League rival unlike Manchester City, the latter being Sanchez’s initially favoured destination.
