According to reports in France, Brazilian superstar, Neymar requested that PSG signs Alexis Sanchez before joining them last summer.
Neymar, who swapped Barcelona for Paris in a world record deal in July, played alongside Alexis Sanchez in Spain. According to Le Parisien, he is keen to have both of them play together once more.
Sanchez’s contract at Arsenal expires next summer and will be free to negotiate with a foreign team as from January. There are indications he will not sign a new deal at Arsenal, and if PSG are as serious as they are rumoured to be, they might even get him in January.
To make Neymar’s dream of playing alongside Sanchez once again come true, there are reports PSG might might be willing to sacrifice Edison Cavani.
The Uruguayan has scored 9 goals in 10 game this season and his partnership with Kylian Mbappe and Neymar has been one of the reasons for his side’s good form.
According to Eurosport, the Paris giants’ main reason for willing to ditch Cavani in order to get Sanchez is mainly for FFP purpose.
Arsenal fans won’t be too unhappy if Alexis Sanchez joins PSG, but all hell might let loose if he does join rivals City.
