According to Don Balon, Arsenal offered Alexis Sanchez to Real Madrid having fears of losing him to Manchester City.
Real Madrid were reportedly offered Alexis Sanchez on Transfer Deadline Day but Zinedine Zidane wasn’t interested.
Rather than sell Alexis to Manchester City, Arsenal offered the Chilean to Real Madrid for £69m, claims Spanish outlet, Don Balon.
Zidane, however, turned down the chance to sign the 28-year-old, who now has under a year left on his current deal with the Gunners.
Alexis was reportedly desperate to move away from north London this summer and was tipped to reunite with former Barcelona boss, Pep Guardiola. However, for some reason, City left it until a final couple of days of the transfer window to make a solid move for the forward.
