Barcelona want at least £20m to sell Alexis Sanchez

Published 1 Comments

Barcelona are looking to receive at least £20m for the services of Alexis Sanchez this summer. 

Premier League duo Manchester United and Liverpool have both been linked with official bids for the Chilean attacker in recent weeks and The Daily Star now claim that the Catalan giants are looking for more than £20 million to sell him with Juventus also believed to be interested.

The same source reports that Barcelona are willing to negotiate Sanchez's departure if such an agreement is met, despite appearing to publicly maintain that the 25-year-old - who first moved to the Camp Nou from Serie A outfit Udinese in 2011 - is part of the first-team picture under the management of new boss Luis Enrique.

With his speed, excellent close control, admirable technique and skill, it is not too difficult to see why both Manchester United and Liverpool appear to have showcased significant interest in Sanchez in recent weeks.

The Red Devils are expected to make wide-ranging and significant improvements to the first-team squad at Old Trafford this summer following the appointment of Louis van Gaal. 

While the addition of at least one new central defender and a greater midfield presence will perhaps be the experienced Dutchman's priority during his first transfer window as Manchester United manager, Sanchez is certainly an exciting talent who could add an extra dimension to their attacking lineup.

Like their fiercest rivals, Liverpool will also be looking to make sweeping changes to their squad this summer in an attempt to continue the rapid progression that has occurred since Brendan Rodgers replaced club legend Kenny Dalglish in the Anfield dugout two years ago.

With Rodgers having carefully nurtured a quite superb attacking lineup, the addition of the wily and speedy World-Cup bound Sanchez to a forward line that already contains the likes of talismanic Uruguayan forward Luis Suarez, strike partner Daniel Sturridge and promising young talents such as Raheem Sterling and Philippe Coutinho would be a fearsome proposition for Premier League defenders.
