Barcelona to raise Sanchez bid

Barcelona had their initial offer for Alexis Sanchez rejected, but are reportedly fighting back to beat Manchester City.

This week Udinese announced they had turned down a €40m bid, letting City into the race with a raised proposal of €45m.

However, Sanchez has made it clear he would prefer the Nou Camp, so the ball is in their court to improve the figures.

According to Spanish site, Vice-President Josep Maria Bartolomeu and director of sport Andoni Zubizzareta have given the all-clear to raise their offer to €50m.
