Paris Saint-Germain respond after reports link them to a move for Alexis Sanchez

Manchester City would have been fuming when Manchester United stole Alexis Sanchez from under their noses in January.

The Chilean left Arsenal for United for just £35 million - a small fee for a player considered to be world-class.

But, despite all their money, City simply weren’t willing to match Sanchez’s £500,00-per-week wages.

And they will be very glad they didn’t right now.

Ten months on and Alexis reportedly wants to leave Old Trafford after just three Premier League goals since his move.

In truth, Sanchez's transfer to the Red Devils has been nothing short of disastrous.

Reports earlier this week linked the forward with a move to Paris Saint-Germain.

And the French club have now responded.

According to the Independent, “Paris Saint-Germain do not have any current interest in signing Alexis Sanchez.”

They add that “the French champions now feel they have the complete attacking line-up in Edinson Cavani, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, and don't feel it is worth moving for a player who is already 29 and has been struggling for form.”



It’s believed that Sanchez’s camp have been exploring the possibility of a deal with the Parc des Princes club due to his unhappiness at the Theatre of Dreams.

But with one of the very few clubs that could afford his wages declaring that they’re not interested, it seems United and Sanchez will be stuck with each for a while longer yet.

Manchester City v Manchester United - Premier League

Man City are highly unlikely to go back in for a player that turned them down in January.

That probably only leaves Spanish giants Real Madrid and former club Barcelona.

While wages probably wouldn’t be too much of a problem for them, there’s simply no way they’ll be willing to break the bank for a player entering his thirties and in this kind of form.

It really is a sorry situation.
