Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, has claimed that Alexis Sanchez is earning more than £600,000-a-week at Manchester United.
Wenger, spoke during an interactive session for the club’s executive box holders.
The Frenchman also admitted that he should have sold Sanchez for 60m to Manchester City last summer.
The Chilean eventually moved to United in a deal that saw Arsenal get Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
When quizzed whether Sanchez’s deal was as much as the £600,000-a-week as had been reported, Wenger pointed to the ceiling as if to signify it was worth even more.
Sanchez endured an unhappy four months at Arsenal, after being made to stay at the Emirates and Wenger pointed to his drop in goals and assists, as to why the gamble to keep him backfired.
