Gunners and Chilean Forwward star Player Alexis Sanchez has been offered a chance to leave Arsenal by Spanish La Liga side Atletico Madrid by big money offer.
According to the Sun Sources, Athletico Diego Simeone side is prepared to pay the 28-year-old Chilean forward Alexis Sanchez a wage of £220,000 per week.
This is big Enough Because the offered deal is obviously a significant increase on the current deal of £160,000-a-week which the Arsenal are offering to sign a new contract. Talks about the new contract have been going on for quite some time now but they appear to have been stalled over the past few weeks which is impossible and Spanish Atletico Madrid have made their interest known to the Alexis Sanchez striker’s representatives.
The Los Colchoneros are resigned to losing their star forward Antoine Griezmann to Manchester United in the upcoming summer 2017. However, they have identified Sanchez as a natural goalscoring replacement for the French superstar and are prepared to pull all stops in a bid to sign him in any cost.
Madrid selling off their 25-year-old French forward Griezmann, the Madrid-based club hope to garner in the £80million release clause, which in turn will enable them to bid about £35m for Alexis Sanchez as well as meet his wage demands.

The Chilean international has less than 18 months remaining on his current contract with arsenal. He had signed from Barcelona for a fee of £33m in 2014 on a five-year deal. He has been terrific at the Emirates but has not been offered an improved contract by Arsene Wenger who has a strict financial policy at the club.
Even his close friends have admitted that they do not know if Sanchez wants to stay in London or not. The situation has led Atletico Madrid to believe that they can tempt him to make a return to La Liga side.
The Gunners forward has scored 15 goals already in the Premier League this season and Arsenal fans have been begging him to stay at the Emirates Stadium. A few days back, he had refused an offer worth at least £400,000 a week to move to the Chinese Super League.
The decision was obvious as no top player would want to leave Europe to play in China. However, Atletico’s offer will be considered by Sanchez and a move could be imminent.
