Barca agree Sanchez fee

The Alexis Sanchez transfer saga is almost over after Udinese finally accepted an offer from Barcelona.

"The agreement with Barcelona for Sanchez is now complete," Gino Pozzo, son of Udinese patron Giampaolo, told Spanish radio station RAC 1.

The 22-year-old has been the Nou Camp outfit's top target all summer and negotiations with the Italian club have dragged on.

Udinese had publicly insisted that they wanted to sell the Chilean for €50m, a fee which scared off Italian suitors Inter and Juventus.

It's reported that Barcelona will hand over €27m to the Stadio Friuli outfit, but a number of bonus clauses have been inserted into the deal.

Should those be activated then it is being suggested that the attacker could eventually cost the European champions €43m.

It's understood that Sanchez has already agreed personal terms with the Nou Camp outfit. All that seemingly remains is for contracts to be signed.
