Udinese list Sanchez contenders

“Barcelona, Manchester City, Manchester United and two Italian clubs have made offers for Alexis Sanchez,” said an Udinese consultant.

It is well known the Chilean is hot property on the transfer market and the subject of a bidding war worth at least €35m.

“There are five clubs who are doing everything to get hold of him: Barcelona, Manchester City, United and two Italian clubs,” Udinese consultant Stefano Antonelli told Sky Sport Italia.

“The offers have all come from these clubs. We don't want to create a bidding war, but he is the big name on the transfer market at the moment and everyone wants him.

“Over the next few days we should learn where Sanchez will go. We wanted to keep hold of the player, but when there is an important offer, it should be evaluated fully.”

It is widely believed the two Italian clubs in the race are Juventus and Inter, but he is thought to be closest to Barcelona.

“All the clubs we talked about have a chance of signing him, but right now my feeling is that he's more likely to go abroad.

“Barcelona's very powerful push on to the scene has changed the scenario somewhat.”
