Barcelona star happy with Nou Camp situation

Manchester United transfer target Alexis Sanchez intends to stay and fight for his place at Barcelona.

The Chilean international has recently been mentioned as a possible January transfer target for David Moyes.

But Sanchez insists he feels at home at Barcelona and wants the opportunity to stake his claim for a regular first-team place.

"I always felt [at home] in Barcelona, with the desire to play 100 per cent every game I fight," Sanchez said as reported by Le 10 Sport.

"Fortunately, I was able to score goals from the beginning of the season. I do not intend to stop there, we must continue to move forward.

"It is very important for a striker to score, especially when you trust your coach and your teammates."

He's found it difficult to nail down a starting spot with so much competition for places in Barcelona's attacking ranks. Leo Messi is undroppable, while the summer arrival of Neymar has pushed Sanchez down the pecking order.

But the 25-year-old has impressed when given the chance on the pitch, prompting speculation United may look to move for the Chile winger in the January window.

David Moyes has struggled to identify his best wide players, with Ashley Young, Shinji Kagawa and Antonio Valencia out of form, Nani still inconsistent and Wilfried Zaha consigned to the Old Trafford bench.
