PSG to break bank for disgruntled Sanchez

Cape Town - Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly going to offer an escape route to Alexis Sanchez, who appears to have fallen out with Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger.

According to the Daily Mirror, the 28-year-old is set to be offered an enormous salary of £300,000 per week to swap London for Paris next season.

Sanchez, who is the Gunners' top attacker in the Premier League with 17 goals and nine assists, is said to have fallen out with Wenger over his frustration about losing matches against major teams domestically and in Europe.

Losses to Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool in England have been compounded by a 5-1 clobbering at the hands of Bayern Munich in a UEFA Champions League Round-of-16, first leg tie.

As such, it appears Sanchez's future at the Emirates Stadium is in doubt and his omission from the starting line-up for Saturday's 3-1 defeat to Liverpool further fuelled the fires.

Wenger has even gone so far to admit that the Chile international may be left out of Tuesday's Champions League second-leg clash against Bayern, due to his "excessive behaviour".

Chinese Super League outfit Hebei China Fortune and Italian giants Juventus have also reportedly been monitoring his situation in recent times, according to the Sun.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger previously dismissed reports of a training-ground bust-up involving Sanchez as "completely false" on Monday.

Sanchez was reported to have stormed off the training pitch last week before becoming involved in an angry confrontation with his team-mates, but he took part in training on Monday and shook hands with Wenger before the session.
