Balbo expects Sanchez sale

Udinese sensation Alexis Sanchez will join Inter or Juventus at the end of the season, says Abel Balbo.

The Chilean is one of the most wanted players in Europe after a sparkling season at the Stadio Friuli.

Although Udinese have suggested that they may keep hold of the South American, Balbo thinks a move is inevitable.

"Udinese are a club who have a philosophy," the former Udinese and Roma striker told Radio Sportiva.

"They are an outfit who sell their big players and then go out and sign unknown players. Sanchez will join Inter or Juventus."

The Nerazzurri have been closely linked with the attacker for some time and are known to have made enquiries during January.

Juve too have been paired but they are expected to focus on strengthening other areas of the team given that they are set to sign Fabio Quagliarella and Alessandro Matri on permanent deals.
