Alexis Sanchez to Juventus
Tuttosport is an Italian daily which many don’t take too serious.
It carries a reputation of being a tabloid, who print eye catching headlines without having evidence to back up their claims.
On Friday, Tuttosport’s front page splash had a picture of Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez. The Chilean was pictured in frustration wearing his Gunners shirt.
Then came the headline: “Sanchez, for Juve he is ideal”.
Who will replace Alvaro Morata?
The Sanchez to Juventus story comes on the back of a major upheaval in Juve’s attacking options.
After two years at the club, Spanish international forward Alvaro Morata is heading back to Real Madrid, as Los Blancos exercise their option to re-sign the striker for 30 million euros.
That’s left the Bianconeri with a hole in the squad. But will Alexis Sanchez fill it?
Interestingly, after their attention demanding front page, the sub-headline inside Tuttosport reveals that Arsenal will not sell Alexis.
Nevertheless, with the Gunners still trying to lock Sanchez down to a new deal, the Juventus story highlights just how sought-after the forward is.
