Alexis Sanchez has been offered £500k per week to join former Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini at Hebei China Fortune Arsene Wenger is said to be furious with the offer from China but Pellegrini is publicly rolling out the welcome mat
MANUEL PELLEGRINI is ready to make Alexis Sanchez the world’s best-paid player as he told the Arsenal ace: ‘Come and join me in China.’ The former Manchester City boss and fellow Chilean is now in charge of Hebei China Fortune. Alexis Sanchez could become the world’s highest paid player if he moves to China.
Pellegrini, who has laid out a £500,000-A-WEEK welcome mat which will infuriate the Gunners, said: “If Alexis wants to come, we have a club for him right now. He can come to join us in China immediately.” Pellegrini already has former Arsenal star Gervinho, 29, and Argentine Ezequiel Lavezzi in his Chinese Super League squad.
Hebei China Fortune striker Ezequiel Lavezzi is the world's highest paid player with £493k per week wages “Alexis has always done things the right way. Chinese football is growing every day and the interest in going there is increasing all the time.
“Maybe at this moment it is difficult to get elite players to leave Europe for China.
“But once they understand the environment and the great project that is building there I am sure many will come over.”
