Juventus Ready To Offer Alexis Sanchez Massive Contract To Leave Arsenal

Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez has been the focus of much speculation in recent days following reports of contract extension demands and a rumoured player swap bid by Serie A champions Juventus.

Today those rumours have stepped up a gear as it is being reported, via the Mirror, that Juventus are ready to offer the Chile international an incredible £200,000 per week contract in a bid to lure him away from Arsenal and the Premier League.

Already rumoured to be prepared to offer the Gunners cash plus out-of-favour striker Mario Mandžukić, Juventus are quickly becoming a thorn in the side of Arsène Wenger as he bids to secure the future of Sanchez at the club.

However, with the 27-year-old insisting on a significant pay rise and the inclusion of a buy-out clause in any new contract, Wenger might well be ready to consider Juventus’ reported interest if negotiations continue to drag on.

Mandžukić was a player of interest for the veteran manager back in 2014, when he scouted the Croatia international at the World Cup so you might assume the Frenchman will not reject out of hand any Juventus offer that includes the striker.

Sanchez is, however, considered a vital part of Wenger’s side and has already proven his importance this week, with a match-saving equaliser against PSG in their Champions League opener.

Gunners fans will be aghast at the notion of losing their star attacker to European rivals Juventus and any such development would likely see calls for Wenger to step down, again.

For now, reports of Juventus’ interest remain in the realm of rumour and speculation. However, with contract talks reportedly continuing to stall and a transfer window only three months away, these rumours might well become reality before long.

So much for a quiet autumn.
