The staggering sum of money which Manchester United have paid former Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez has been revealed (via The Mirror).
It was a move which was hardly seen as a positive for Arsenal by the vast majority of football fans when Alexis Sanchez headed to Manchester United in January.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan joined the Gunners in return, a player who the Gunners had been following for a number of years.
Sanchez left the club after three-and-a-half years after failing to agree on a new contract with the club.
There were rumours that the Chilean had signed a big-money deal at Old Trafford but now, the staggering figures have been revealed.
Football Leaks has claimed that the Chile international is paid £391,000-per-week as well as an additional £75,000 per appearance.

Sanchez also receives an annual signing-on fee of £1.1million which adds up to a staggering sum of money.
The player who turns 30 in December has made 22 appearances for United, running up to a total cost of £14.48 million since January.
It’s a staggering sum of money which Arsenal certainly would not have paid. Alexis Sanchez was a quality player during his time at Arsenal but has not been worth anywhere near that amount of money in recent time.
