Neymar trying to persuade Arsenal star to snub Manchester United for PSG transfer

Posted by

Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar is reportedly keen on luring Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez to PSG in a shock bid to hijack Manchester United’s transfer plans.

The Daily Express claim Sanchez could be on the brink of completing a move to Old Trafford, but it seems his former Barcelona team-mates have not given up on changing his mind.

The Chile international will be out of contract with Arsenal in the summer and could then be free to join whomever he wants, as he’d likely have the pick of a number of Europe’s top clubs.

Sanchez could certainly fit in well at PSG, and Don Balon claim his ex-Barca colleagues Neymar and Dani Alves are still trying to pull the strings in an attempt to lure him to the French capital.

Neymar is said to be particularly keen on the move, with Don Balon stating that the Brazil international wants his club to replace Edinson Cavani up front.

It remains to be seen if this will all prove too little, too late, but Arsenal fans would dearly love it if their star player moved abroad instead of to a Premier League rival.

Sanchez has been with the Gunners since 2014 and has established himself as one of the best attacking players in the world in that time.
