Antonio Conte has personally asked Alexis Sanchez to join Juventus from Barcelona, according to reports.
The Chile international has been heavily linked with a switch away from Camp Nou this summer, with the Bianconeri and Manchester United thought to be at the head of the queue.
But Tuttosport have revealed this morning that the Old Lady’s Coach has personally spoken to the former Udinese man in a bid to persuade him to sign for the club.
Conte is supposed to have told Alexis how he will be used next season and his importance within the team.
The paper believes that Sanchez would favour a transfer to Turin, with Arturo Vidal one of his best friends in the game.
