Fresh from playing a starring role in Chile’s 2-0 win over Spain, Alexis Sanchez continues to be linked with a move away from Barcelona.
And, for fans of the Premier League, Sanchez reportedly wants to play in England with Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United all having made offers, according to reports in Spain and Chile today.
Spanish radio station Cope have a story on their website, published late on Wednesday evening, regarding Alexis Sanchez’s future, they credit Chilean journalist Rodrigo Norambuena for the information.
Sanchez has been linked with a move away from the Nou Camp for much of the summer, Norambuena puts this down to the fact the Chilean forward has a bad relationship with Lionel Messi.
Following a game where Sanchez scored two goals for Barcelona, he was congratulated by all the Barcelona players, except Lionel Messi.
(Alexis Sanchez scored a brace on two occasions last season, versus Valladolid and Levante.)
Despite the fact Sanchez has a good relationship with Barcelona’s other big star Neymar, Sanchez has instructed his agent to find a new club.
Cope report that Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United have all made clear their interest, with offers, but Juventus are leading the race.
One would imagine, with the great wealth in the Premier League that Arsene Wenger, Brendan Rodgers and Louis van Gaal could all lodge bigger bids than the Old Lady.
Even if Chile fall at the first knockout round of the World Cup, it would be a huge surprise were Alexis Sanchez not to be named as one of the stars of the World Cup and the link with the Premier League giants is unlikely to go away.
Of the three sides, Arsenal would appear to be in pole position, offering a London base and Champions League football.
