Guardiola: 'Sanchez our priority'

Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola confirms “Alexis Sanchez is our transfer priority and Bojan Krkic is very close to Roma.”

The reigning European Champions have been in negotiations for €39m Udinese star Sanchez for many weeks, but a deal is yet to be secured.

“Sanchez is our transfer priority, so we'll see how it all ends,” said Guardiola in today's Press conference.

The Coach was also asked about Bojan, the young Barcelona striker who was expected to join Roma last week, but was also called up for pre-season training.

“Bojan is very close to joining Roma. It's only normal that in these years he would've wanted to play more regularly and so it's right he gets the experience that he deserves.”

Barcelona have been warned off Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas, but Guardiola admitted he was on their agenda.

“We will not disguise he is a player that interests us a great deal. We'll try to sign him right to the end.”
