Udinese: No Inter offer for Sanchez

Udinese maintain that they want to keep Alexis Sanchez after denying reports that Inter had made them an offer.

Sanchez is expected to move on this summer with a variety of sides said to be formulating offers of over €30m.

Manchester City are understood to have made a bid, while Inter chief Massimo Moratti was rumoured to have tabled an offer this week.

"There has been mo meeting with Moratti for Sanchez," Gino Pozzo, son of Udinese patron Giampaolo, told Sky Sport Italia.

"There have just been normal discussions with Inter, but no bid from them."

Sanchez has been an instrumental figure in the club's qualification for the Champions League and Pozzo wants him to take part in the competition next season with the same shirt.

"It's clear that the player can't ignore the interest in him from the top clubs, but our priority is to keep him," Pozzo Jnr added.

"It is clear that we will sell some players, but we will keep things to a minimum in the interests of continuity."
