Barca want Alexis auction

Barcelona reportedly remain open to Alexis Sanchez’s exit, but are intending to sell only to the highest bidder.

Juventus have been listed as an interested party in picking up the Chile international this summer, whilst a number of Premier League sides have also been linked.

Following on/off reports of his inclusion in the Blaugrana’s proposed talks with Liverpool over a move for Luis Suarez, most recent stories in England suggest that the player has shown a preference towards Arsenal.

The Gazzetta dello Sport reiterate that whilst Juve remain in the picture and interested in the former Udinese forward, Barca’s position has apparently not changed.

The pink daily believe that the Catalans are open to his sale at the right price, but are currently angling for an auction between the interested clubs, rather than entering into specific talks with any one side.
