Born in Tocopilla, Chile on December 19, 1988. Chilean footballer and Arsenal winger Alexis Sanchez has an estimated net worth of $15 million. He started out by playing for Cobreloa where he joined both the youth and senior squads. In April 2006, he was transferred to Italy’s Udinese Calcio for £1.7 million. Shortly after the transfer, he was loaned to Chilean club Colo-Colo and Argentina’s River Plate in 2007. He returned to Udinese and played in Serie A in 2008. In 2011, he caught the attention of Spanish club Barcelona and ultimately signed a deal worth £25 million, the priciest transfer for a Chilean football player ever. He stayed with the club until 2014 when Arsenal signed him for a reported £30–35 million, the second most expensive transfer in the club’s history after Mesut Özil. Alexis Sanchez made his debut for the Chilean national team in a friendly match against New Zealand in April 2006. He began playing for the senior squad in 2007 and has made over 75 appearances. He has played for the national team in major cups such as the FIFA World Cup 2010 and 2014 and the 2011 Copa América. He was honored with Serie A Player of the Month in 2011, and Kid’s Choice Awards’ Favorite Footballer in March 2015.
