Alexis Sanchez has left England to prepare with Chile for this summer’s Confederations Cup, and he’s got Arturo Vidal in his ear trying to convince him to move to Bayern Munich this summer.
There has been much speculation over the future of the club’s leading scorer, with the Bundesliga giants up there with PSG, Man City and Chelsea as mooted destinations.
Speaking to reporters around the Chile camp this week, Vidal said, “I told him that he has the opportunity to be on a big team, and if you want to compare to the best players, you have to go to the best team in the world.”
The thing to consider about this is that Sanchez and Vidal share the same agent, and the former Barcelona man has a big decision to make this summer.
At 28, his next contract is going to be his last big one, and with his star at its brightest, chances are he won’t be short of options. And from clubs who can afford to pay him the wages he’d desire. Man City’s interest in him is said to be particularly strong, and it would see Sanchez reunited with former boss Pep Guardiola.
It has been reported that Arsenal are willing to offer around £275,000 per week and a two year extension, but it really feels like we have our work cut out to keep him.
