Madrid considering Alexis approach?

A report in Spain suggests Real Madrid have identified Arsenal’s former Barcelona forward Alexis Sanchez as a possible signing.

Don Balon say the Chile international may be on Madrid’s agenda, either for the winter transfer window or next summer’s, as they consider long-term replacements for Cristiano Ronaldo or alternatives to Gareth Bale.

Alexis is thought to be happy in London and the Premier League club are about to improve his contract, according to reports from England, however.

A fee of €50m plus a player such as Denis Cheryshev is mooted should Madrid make an approach to the Gunners, trumping the €40m Arsenal paid Barca for the former Udinese man in 2014.
