Transfer: Alexis Sanchez gets huge offer to join new club



Former Arsenal and Manchester United star Alexis Sanchez has received a huge offer to join a club in the Saudi Pro League this summer.

Sanchez, who was reported last week to be on his way back to Arsenal, has his  contract with Olympique Marseille expire at the end of June.

The Chile international scored 18 goals in 44 games over the past season for the Ligue1 side in the just concluded season.

Football transfer expert Fabrizio Romano now reports that Saudi side Al Fateh have formally approached the 34-year-old, offering him a one year deal, with an option for a further season, worth around €10million (£8.6m).

Sanchez is the latest in a long line of big names to be linked with a move to the Saudi Pro League following Cristiano Ronaldo’s transfer to Al-Nassr at the start of the year.

Sanchez first rose to prominence at Barcelona before moving to Arsenal in 2014 where he established himself as one of the Premier League’s best players.

He scored 80 goals and made 45 assists in 166 games for the Gunners, winning two FA Cups in the process, but his time at the Emirates came to a bitter end when he forced his way out of the club in January 2018.
