It's reported Udinese want to sell Alexis Sanchez to Manchester City, but the player is determined to join Barcelona, albeit with lower wages.
The bidding war for the Chilean talent has been whittled down to just two clubs at this point.
There were already rumours yesterday that Barça were slipping back with an offer of €34m plus €5m in performance-related bonuses and forward Jeffren.
Roberto Mancini's City have a far higher wage deal for Sanchez, not to mention a bid of €40m and another €5m in performance-related bonuses.
Jeffren reportedly turned down the move, complicating matters for Barcelona, so Udinese are pushing Sanchez towards Manchester.
However, according to El Mundo Deportivo, the Chile international is now absolutely determined to play at the Nou Camp next season.
