The agent of Alexis Sanchez insists the attacker won’t be leaving Barcelona any time soon amid reported interest from Liverpool, according to talkSPORT.

The Chilean winger moved to the Nou Camp from Italian side Udinese in the summer of 2011 but has struggled to rediscover the form that earned him a move to Spain, with a series of injuries hampering his progress.

The 23-year-old is not regarded as a first team regular these days and talkSPORT claim Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is interested in bringing him to the Premier League as he looks to add to his attacking options.

However, the players agent Fernando Felicevich insists Sanchez will not be leaving Barcelona as he wants to stay at the ‘best team in the world’ and learn from players like Messi:

“In no case will Alexis leave Barcelona. He has returned after injury and played well,”

“Alexis stays in Barcelona. Has no reason to leave. He is at the best team in the world. In addition to that Barca has Messi, a player that everyone can learn from.”

Felicevich is quoted as saying by talkSPORT

It comes as no surprise to me that Sanchez want’s to stay at Barcelona. When I read the rumours linking him with a move to Liverpool, I was skeptical to say the least. No disrespect to Liverpool but as his agent says, Barcelona are the best side in the world and it’s not often a player wants to leave the Catalan giants.

If Barcelona want to sell, that’s another matter, but there has been no indication in the reports to suggest the La Liga side are ready to give up on Sanchez just yet.
