Alexis Sanchez is set to become the highest-paid player in Premier League as he leaves Arsenal for Manchester United.The Chilean’s contract at Emirates Stadium was set to expire at the end of the current season, with the Gunners unable to convince their star man to stay.It is understood that Sanchez will almost triple his current Arsenal salary of £130,000 by taking home £350,000-a-week plus bonuses when he joins United, an offer even long-time admirers Manchester City were unable to match.
A weekly salary of £350,000 after tax translates into a cool £1.4million per month and an eye-watering £16.8m a year.
How about on a daily basis? Well, Sanchez will be earning a handy £50,000 per day. Or, looking at it another way, a company in America will allow you to clone your pet for less than that so that’s loads more Atoms and Humbers running around Manchester.
Per hour? A few pence over £2083 or, if he would need as such, two brand new iPhone Xs every hour, one for Atom and one for Humber.
