Transfer Balls: Alexis Sanchez Would Only Pick Liverpool Over Arsenal If They Moved To London
LIVERPOOL Balls: The Daily Express says the Reds offered Barcelona £3million more than Arsenal for Alexis Sanchez.
James Dickenson notes:
Arsenal paid £33m to bring Sanchez to England – where he has flourished with 10 goals in his first 16 games. However, according to Spanish newspaper Sport, Liverpool’s offer to Barcelona for the Chile international was greater than Arsenal’s.
But the Metro said Arsenal paid £32m for Sanchez.
All true? Well, The Metro said Arsenal paid £35m for Sanchez.
The Daily Star says:
BARCELONA allowed Alexis Sanchez to complete his £35m move to Arsenal in the summer…
The Independent agreed. It was £35m.
Can it be that in the desire to rubn Liverpool noses in the face of a player missed, the Express is massaging the facts?
If Liverpool did bid £36m for Sanchez, it was only £1m more than Arsenal bid. Sanchez didn’t dream of Arsenal: he wanted to live and work in London.
