Barcelona have made their stance clear on the future of Alexis Sanchez following a series of transfer rumours, by rejecting bids from both Manchester United and Liverpool for the player.

According to Spanish newspaper Sport the Catalan giants have said no to official offers from three clubs, including the aforementioned Premier League duo and French champions Paris Saint-Germain. It’s thought that despite many believing that the club were looking to dispense of the Chilean’s services this summer, Barca chief Josep Maria Bartomeu still considers him to be an important asset to the club, as does new Nou Camp boss Luis Enrique.

Having stepped up to the plate in a season where the form of the usually spectacular Lionel Messi dipped in and out of brilliance, Sanchez has increased his stock as a top European player, and for some it was a surprise to see him initially linked with an exit. Naturally the interest from other big clubs steadily grew, and it would appear that United and Liverpool were so sure of his availability that they not only sounded out Barca over a potential deal, but made formal proposals in the hope of luring him to England.

However Sport reports that the offers were hardly considered before rejection, and that Sanchez could well be handed a lucrative new contract in order to tie his future to Barcelona.
