The 33-year-old is set to arrive from Inter after he mutually agreed to terminate his contract with the Italian club.
But Sanchez's attempts to greet the fans almost ended up in unexpected chaos.
A video from Get French Football News shows frenzied supporters behind small fences desperate to get a glimpse of their new signing.

Sanchez just manages to stay on his feet, with some help from a nearby steward.
Get French Football News tweeted alongside the video: "Alexis Sanchez with nearly the fastest injury sustained at a new club in the history of football."
