Neymar name-dropped Alexis Sanchez when negotiating his world-record transfer move to Paris Saint-Germain, according to reports in France.
The 25-year-old superstar made history when he completed a £197million switch from Barcelona to the Parc des Princes in the Summer and has scored eight goals in his opening eight appearances for the Ligue 1 giants.
French outlet Le Parisien claim Neymar placed Arsenal forward Sanchez on his wishlist as he discussed terms over his move to Paris ahead of the 2017/18 campaign.
Neymar and Sanchez were team-mates at the Nou Camp and it’s understood the Brazilian is keen to play alongside the Gunners attacker once again.
