Alexis Sanchez on the verge of a Barcelona move

Udinese winger Alexis Sanchez could be leaving the Serie A, moving to the La Liga to further his career. The speedy winger could complete a move to Barcelona as early as next week. The move will trigger the sale of Bojan who is rumoured to be leaving the Catalans, due to a lack of playing time.

Barcelona are reportedly paying 40 million euros for the services of the Udinese player. The Italian club are willing to let go of the 22 year old, owner Giampaolo is allowing Sanchez to make his own decision, acknowledging the fact that he will become a superstar in the years to come.

The Chilean man performed very well in the World Cup, and backed up this showing with a dazzling performance in the Serie A, leading Udinese to a top four finish. His contract runs until 2014, but a sum to the value of 40million plus will surely change this.

Udinese have a number of targets lined up if Sanchez chooses to leave.
