German giants Bayern Munich are prepared to make Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez their highest paid player as they look to beat off competition from Manchester City for his signature.

Bayern are said to be prepared to pay Sanchez £350,000 per week to sign for the side – Robert Lewandowski is the current highest earner on £300,000 a week – according to the Daily Mirror.

By offering such a wage, Bayern’s top brass are hoping to ward off rival interest from Manchester City. Sanchez’s agent is already said to have had talks with Bayern and is confident that a deal can be completed.

Bayern plan to tempt Arsenal with an offer of £40 million for 28-year-old Sanchez, who has one year left on his contract.
However, Arsenal are still hopeful of retaining the Chilean and have reportedly offered him an improved £275,000 a week contract to stay at the Emirates.

The chances of a deal happening may hinge on whether Arsene Wenger can bring in another global superstar to replace Sanchez. He is known to be interested in Monaco wonderkid Kylian Mbappe and Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette.
This could be one of those sagas that lasts all summer long…
