Atletico Madrid have made a contract offer to Manchester United striker Alexis Sanchez.
That’s according to Gazzetta dello Sport’s Nicolo Schira.
Spanish giants Atletico are “really interested”, insists Schira, who are prepared to offer the 30-year-old a three-year deal.
He tweeted: “#AtleticoMadrid is really interested in Alexis #Sanchez. He could leave from #ManchesterUnited in summer and #Simeone has offered to “El Nino Maravilla” a contract until 2022.”
Sanchez previously spent three years in Spain with Barcelona and scored 47 times in his 141 appearances with the Catalans.
United are likely to waive a fee for Alexis if Atletico agree to take on his wages in full. Alexis would be expected to take a major cut on his current £300,000-a-week deal.
