Udinese have released a statement insisting “there is no agreement with Barcelona for Alexis Sanchez, nor are any meetings planned.”
President Franco Soldati was quoted as saying Sanchez already agreed terms with the Blaugrana for a summer switch, which would be imminent.
“With regards to the statements attributed to be about a supposed transfer of Sanchez to FC Barcelona, I wish to point out these are without foundation,” wrote Soldati on the official club website.
“There is no agreement between Udinese and Barcelona for the sale of this player. It should also be noted no meetings are planned between the two clubs to discuss any such transfer.”
