Football Talk - Barca win Sanchez race
Alexis Sanchez has finally completed his move from Udinese to Barcelona. The Chilean forward moves to the European champions for a fee of £23m, which could rise as high as £33m.
Sanchez, and not Arsenal s Cesc Fabregas, has always been Pep Guardiola s main transfer target this summer, and the coach expressed his delight at finally getting his man.
Sanchez is very young, Guardiola said of the 22-year-old Serie A player of the year.
He can play in all three attacking positions, he shows intense defensive skills, he s direct and from what I ve been told, he s a very nice kid.
Do you think Sanchez will start for Barcelona with the likes of Messi and Villa or will he spend a lot of his time on the bench? Have your say and join the conversations with the SoccerBible community online, on Twitter and on Facebook.
