7.5 million, Alexis Sanchez does not accept OM’s offer


By: Manu Tournoux

The extension of Alexis Sanchez’s contract is the priority of OM leaders in the offensive sector, but the file is complex. The Chilean striker is dragging his feet and it is starting to show.

Will Alexis Sanchez be an Olympique de Marseille player next season? The doubt is total, because the negotiations began several weeks ago between the agents of the Chilean international and the staff of OM. Despite cordial relations, no agreement has yet been reached. Pablo Longoria is however determined to bring this file to an end and the President of Olympian has gone all out with a salary offer 25% higher than the emoluments received by the former FC Barcelona striker last season. This represents nearly 7.5 million euros per year all the same.

Olympique de Marseille have taken a step towards Alexis Sanchez, it is now up to the Chilean international to make his long-awaited decision. But patience is necessary in this case because according to information from La Provence, no significant progress can be reported for the extension of Alexis Sanchez in the last hours. Accustomed to completing his files very quickly during the transfer window, Pablo Longoria finds himself confronted with the timing imposed by one of his potential recruits, which is not to please him.

The Alexis Sanchez case is not moving forward

And for good reason, OM are playing their third preliminary round of the Champions League in a month and badly need reinforcements, mainly in attack and on the side positions. To date, only one recruit has filled the ranks of Olympians in the person of Geoffrey Kondogbia, recruited from Atlético de Madrid for 8 million euros. A recruit who provoked the enthusiasm… of Alexis Sanchez, reassured by the ambitions of OM on the transfer market. Therefore, the question is to know why the Chilean is dragging his feet to give his agreement to Marseille in order to extend at least one season.
