- PSG are set to hijack Manchester City deal for Alexis Sanchez
- The Parisians are reportedly offering an advance signing-on fee of £9 million to the Arsenal forward
- The French giants are also willing to offer Sanchez £275,000 weekly deal
Paris Saint-Germain are set to hijack Manchester City's move for Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez, according to reports from Chile.
The Arsenal striker's contract expires at the end of the current 2017/2018 season and he appears determined to leave the Emirates.
Chilean newspaper El Mecurio reported that PSG will offer Sanchez a £9 million 'advance' on his signing-on fee in January.
As SunSport revealed at the weekend, Man City is likely to lose the striker on financial constraint with a monster offer from the Ligue 1 pacesetters.
But with PSG willing to pay him a tempting £9m signing-on fee in January, Sanchez may already be out of their grasp.
It is not clear in this report whether PSG would have to pay more in the summer, SunSport revealed that Manchester United were told they have to pay Sanchez a £25million signing-on fee to lure him to Old Trafford.
Sanchez reportedly met with PSG representatives in the summer where he demanded a staggering £400,000-a-week salary.
Despite their massive wealth, the French club baulked at the price, admitting they could not afford it.
But The Parisians did offer the Arsenal star man around £275,000-a-week and promised him a massive up-front fee.
If Sanchez arrives, it is likely that PSG top goalscorer Edinson Cavani would make way.
The Uruguayan has netted nine goals this season but has already fallen out with world record signing Neymar.
The striker argued with the £198m Brazilian over a free-kick and the club have predictably fallen on the side of their record signing.
Sanchez, 28, has had three excellent seasons in north London, but has become hugely frustrated with Arsenal's inability to challenge for the title.
He has scored 73 goals in 150 games for the Gunners helping them to win two FA Cups.
