ENGLAND - Arsenal offer Alexis Sanchez new £300,000-a-week deal to make him highest paid player in Premier League


  • Arsenal have made a second contract offer to star forward Alexis Sanchez 
  • Chilean rejected an offer of £225,000 a week but £300,000 is now on the table 
  • Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain would like to sign the talented forward
  • 28-year-old will miss Friday night's Premier League opener against Leicester


  • Arsenal have offered Alexis Sanchez a new contract worth £300,000 per week.
    The striker's current deal runs out at the end of the season and he has refused to sign an extension. Arsenal's previously offered £225,000, with bonuses that could have bumped up his pay to £275,000 a week.
    But Sanchez made it clear he wants upwards of £300,000 before even considering agreeing fresh terms and it remains to be seen whether the new offer will be enough.

    Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain would like to sign the Chile forward, but Arsene Wenger is growing increasingly confident he will stay. The manager refuses to entertain any offers for him, despite the threat of losing him for nothing next summer.
    The 28-year-old will miss Friday night's Premier League opener against Leicester and next weekend's match at Stoke with an abdominal injury.


    Mesut Ozil and Aaron Ramsey, who missed the Community Shield on Sunday with injuries, both trained on Thursday but may not be ready to line up on Friday.
    Ozil and fellow midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are also out of contract at the end of the season, and offers of more than £50m for either of them or Sanchez would test Wenger's resolve to keep hold of them.


    Arsenal rejected a £25m bid from Chelsea for Oxlade-Chamberlain this week, but Stamford Bridge boss Antonio Conte is determined to strengthen his squad before the transfer deadline.
    The champions named youngsters Kyle Scott, Jeremie Boga and Charly Musonda as substitutes for the Community Shield loss to the Gunners, highlighting the lack of depth in their squad.
    However, Chelsea have loaned out over 20 players this summer and sold Nemanja Matic, Nathan Ake, Nathaniel Chalobah and Bertrand Traore.
    And Wenger admitted he doesn't feel sorry for his opposite number.
    'If you look at the number of players that are out on loan, they can call a few back,' he said. 'I have sympathy for him. But do I feel sorry for Chelsea because they don't have enough players? No.'

    Floyd Mayweather has teased a the idea of himself fighting in the UFC in recent months and the boxing icon went one step further on Tuesday, posting a video of himself stepping into a mixed martial arts cage. With no caption accompanying the clip, The Money Team leader can be seen entering an octagon before pacing up and down as if he were about to engage in an actual MMA bout.  And Conor McGregor, the man who entered the boxing ring to fight Mayweather in a money-spinning Las Vegas showdown in August last year, was quick to notice. He wrote on Twitter: 'Hahahaha very good. Keep up the good work my son. Yours sincerely, Senior.'  The Irishman followed up his response with a picture of himself and his son with the caption *f*** the Mayweathers'. Mayweather set fans' pulses racing last month when he claimed he had been approached by the UFC about a potential MMA fight.  'They just called me not too long ago and asked me to come back,' he said. 'I can come righ…

    Chelsea complete £17.5million deal for defender Emerson Palmieri from Roma

    Roma defender Emerson Palmieri has completed his £17.5million move to Chelsea. Palmieri posed for pictures with the shirt on Tuesday evening after completing his medical and penning a four-and-a-half year contract. The Brazilian, who has been assigned the No 33 shirt at Chelsea, left his home in Rome to fly to London earlier in the day.  The 23-year-old left-back underwent several medical tests before putting pen to paper to move to Stamford Bridge. 'I came here because it’s a great team with a great history,' Emerson said. 'Today I am realising one of my dreams to pull on the shirt of such a great club. ‘English football is something I have been watching since I was 15 years old. It is a really beautiful game over here but it is going to be even more beautiful to play it.’ Chelsea have agreed to pay a further £5.2m in bonuses for Palmieri, who is likely to be eligible to face Watford next Monday. The Brazilian had been lined up as part of a double swoop with Edin Dzeko, but Che…

    Anthony Joshua working hard in the gym as he steps up preparations for Joseph Parker showdown

    With just over two months to go until his return to the ring, Anthony Joshua is shaping up nicely after putting in the hard yards at the gym. The world heavyweight champion faces Joseph Parker at Cardiff's Principality Stadium on March 31, where he beat Carlos Takam in October. And trainer Jamie Reynolds has shared footage of the 28-year-old stepping up his preparations with various workouts in the gym. With the clock ticking ahead of the fight, Parker has outlined how he feels he can better his opponent. 'I want to fight a fight that's going to be a fast-paced fight… movement, speed and just different angles – I think that's how we are going to attack Joshua,' Parker told Radio Live. 'He's [Joshua] dominated fighters that stand in front of him, that don't move – all they do is protect themselves,' Parker said about Joshua. When it comes to finding a sparring partner, Parker is looking for a similar fighting style to his 6ft 5in, 240-pound opponent Joshua…
