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.
