Juventus look set to miss out on Alexis Sanchez, as it’s reported Barcelona accepted Arsenal’s £32m offer.
The player had been wanted by Juve, Liverpool and the Gunners, but had already ruled out Anfield as part of an exchange with Luis Suarez.
The 25-year-old would’ve preferred a return to Serie A, where he first shot to fame at Udinese.
However, Goal.com and Metro report today that Barcelona have accepted Arsenal’s £32m proposal for the Chile international.
This translates as approximately €40m.
It’s believes Alexis was swayed by wages of £130,000 per week – almost double his current salary and simply beyond Juve’s pay structure.
Tuttosport wrote this morning that the Bianconeri would only break the bank for Sanchez if they sold one of their top stars, so it's now more likely Paul Pogba and Arturo Vidal will remain.
