The Chilean World Cup star is now surplus to requirements at Barcelona with Luis Suarez due imminently at the Nou Camp and the Catalans keen for a big fee.
Marca report that “Alexis Sanchez is very close to leaving Barcelona.”
Sanchez has left his holiday to return to Barcelona and is currently weighing up his offers.
Arsenal have made the most significant bid for Sanchez, of at least 40 million euros, according to Marca.
But, “the option of Juventus is still on the table” and Marca add that Sanchez would prefer a return to Serie A where he made his name with Udinese.

As much of the English media are now reporting: Liverpool are no longer in the race for Sanchez as he was unwilling to live on Merseyside.
