Neymar has asked PSG to sign Sanchez – report

Date published: Thursday 5th October 2017 2:17

Neymar included Paris St Germain signing Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal as part of his wish list when joining the club, reports in the French media say.

Newspaper Le Parisien claim that Neymar and Sanchez are friends, and that PSG are now working on Neymar’s request for the club to sign the Arsenal forward.

Neymar and Edinson Cavani fell out over the talking of a penalty last month, although those problems have now been sorted. Yet it is Cavani who is likely to be sold to make room for Sanchez.

Le Parisien say that Sanchez is tempted by the project, and could agree a free transfer move in January. They also say that discussions with Sanchez took place this summer, and were only stopped when it became clear PSG were signing Neymar.

For balance Le Parisien do also say that Sanchez could be sold by Arsenal in January, which could prove tricky for PSG. Particularly if Manchester City follow up their bid in August.

Still, what Neymar wants Neymar usually gets.
