Juventus will offer Arsenal €30 million for Alexis Sanchez this summer, according to a front page splash in today’s Corriere dello Sport.
Buoyed by the Gunners failure to tie down the 28-year-old Chile international to a new contract the reigning Serie A champions believe they can snatch the striker on the cheap.
“Here is Alexis Sanchez – Juve, another champion!” reads the headline in the Italian publication, which seems somewhat optimistic given Arsene Wenger has already said he’s willing to keep Sanchez, who signed from Barcelona for a fee in the region of £35 million, until his deal ends in July 2018 even though that would mean forfeiting a transfer fee.
Sanchez, who is understood to have turned down a contract from the Gunners taking his wages to £180,000 a week, is thought to be open to a return to Italy having enjoyed a previous spell in Serie A with Udinese.
Sanchez has also been linked with a move to big-spenders PSG who’d likely be able to blow the Old Lady out of the water if a bidding war was to ensue.
It's not wholly unrealistic, but we're adding a poo because we're in denial.
