The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are desperate to see a major signing come through the doors at Stamford Bridge, with Alexis Sanchez the preferred pick of many…
However, it appears as though those hopes have suffered a pretty disappointing blow – with the Telegraph reporting that PSG are stepping up their efforts to secure a deal for Sanchez this summer. This is pretty significant for Chelsea, as not only would the French outfit likely be able to stump up more cash, given their track record for spending, but Arsenal would likely be far more keen to sell to a club abroad, rather than to a Premier League rival.
Whilst a deal appears some way off, and indeed Arsenal could yet seek a renewal deal with Sanchez, it appears as though the Alexis Sanchez saga is developing into what could become the story of the summer. Indeed, it is already the talk of the Transfer Tavern, and that chatter is only going to increase in volume as the weeks pass.
The prize that both Chelsea and PSG are fighting for is certainly a rich one. Sanchez, who reportedly earns £130,000-per-week, is arguably one fo the Premier League’s finest players, with 18 goals and 9 assists proving vital for Arsenal this year.
