With his big money move from Arsenal to Manchester United almost a done deal, the not so pleasant side of striker Alexis Sanchez has been thrust into the public by a 20-year-old woman who claims the Chilean footballer once offered her £1,000 (Sh143,000) for a night of romance.
In a stunning revelation published by British paper,The Sun,Paulina Sobierajska gives a detailed account of how she first met Sanchez at a club and how the player enticed her back to his flat in what would become a five-month flirtatious affair.
Paulina would visit Sanchez’s apartment on four more occasions over that period of their clandestine affair. All this while, the Chilean striker never mentioned the fact that he has a girlfriend.
An excerpt of the article penned down by the Sun reads in part:
“A student claims Alexis Sanchez offered her £1,000 for sex. Before leaving Mayfair’s Novikov Bar Sanchez gave Paulina £1,000 in £20 notes. He also messaged the address of his Kensington flat and said a friend would let her in. Paulina said yesterday:
“He said he really, really liked me and asked me to go to a party and couple of drinks at his flat. It was quite weird but I said sure I will go.”
Paulina also talks of the stripteases and drinks that Sanchez would treat her to whenever she visited his apartment until October 2017, when she came to learn about Sanchez’s girlfriend, Mayte Rodriquez.
Soccer players are no strangers to sex scandals. Few years ago, French players in Karim Benzema and Franck Ribbery were also drawn in a controversial sex scandal story that forced them out of playing international games. Mario Balotelli, Cristiano Ronaldo among many others have also been victims of similar stories.
