Man City ‘make final approach to sign Alexis Sanchez’

Manchester City are reportedly willing to pay Alexis Sanchez £400,000 a week in a desperate attempt to get the Arsenal forward to push through a move.

The Citizens have so far been unsuccessful in their attempt to lure the Chile international away from the Emirates Stadium, where he remains under contract for the next year.

City have already supposedly offered to pay Arsenal £60m to sign the contract rebel, and The Sun claims that they have stepped up their pursuit by informing Sanchez that his £21m-a-year wage demands will be met.

It is suggested that boss Pep Guardiola and director of football Txiki Begiristain are leaving no stone unturned, with the ex-Barcelona ace seen as the last piece to the title-winning jigsaw.

Sanchez will become the Premier League’s highest-paid player if the move does go through, surpassing the £280,000 a week paid by Manchester United to Paul Pogba.
