RUMOURS: Alexis offered £500,000 a week to join Hebei

The Arsenal star is wanted by his compatriot Manuel Pellegrini at the CSL club, with a mega offer tabled to lure him away from the Emirates Stadium

Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez has been offered £500,000 a week to join Hebei China Fortune with Manuel Pellegrini keen to lure him to China, reports The Sun.

The Chilean is in ongoing contract renewal talks with Arsenal, but there is currently believed to be a gap between demand and offer.

With Alexis’ contract up in June 2018, former Manchester City boss Pellegrini – who revealed that the Etihad Stadium outfit missed out on the Chilean due to FFP rules – is eager not to miss out a second time.

The Hebei coach is reported to have offered his compatriot a massive £500,000 a week to lure him to the ambitious Chinese Super League side.
