Alexis Sanchez has demanded a non-negotiable contract worth £250,000 a week with Arsenal, according to reports.
The Guardian claim that the Chilean has a received a ‘massive offer’ from a rival club and has now asked the Gunners to meet his request.
Sanchez has less than two years remaining on his current deal with Arsenal and is widely tipped to leave at the end of the season.
In recent weeks, Sanchez is understood to have distanced himself from team-mates after being involved in two confrontations.
It’s been reported that the 28-year-old reacted angrily in the dressing room to the team’s 5-1 capitulation at the hands of Bayern Munich in Germany.
While last week, Sanchez was involved in a row with Laurent Koscielny after storming out of a training session.
Robert Pires, who witnessed the incident, confirmed that Sanchez’s punishment for his conduct was to be dropped by Wenger for the trip to Liverpool on Saturday.
‘Unfortunately, Arsene Wenger made the decision to sanction Sanchez in relation to this behavior, putting him on the bench against Liverpool,’ Pires told beIN Sports.
‘Unfortunately, it went wrong. The fans have to understand that if this was the case, it was because something happened.
‘It was not something serious, but it was a disciplinary penalty, quite simply.’
