The 28-year-old Chilean international is good friends with Neymar and is a player that the Brazilian put on his wish-list of PSG signings when he arrived in the capital this summer. Sanchez can play out wide, or as a central striker. Talks between the two parties were very advanced this summer, running at the same time as the negotiations for the eventual signature of Neymar.

The only reason that PSG withdraw from a possible deal was that they understood that a deal for Kylian Mbappé had become a strong possibility. Sanchez was put aside temporarily, but discussions between the two parties have yet to cease.

Neymar and the Uruguayan are not close, even if the penalty fiasco has now been resolved. Cavani’s departure would install Mbappé as the central striker.
