Confirmed: £30million Bid for Alexis Sanchez

By on March 3, 2011

Alexis Sanchez Alexis Sanchez of Udinese celebrates his second goal (0-3) during the Serie A match between US Citta di Palermo and Udinese Calcio at Stadio Renzo Barbera on February 27, 2011 in Palermo, Italy.

Alexis Sanchez is proving hot property, with clubs from England, Italy and Spain all seemingly interested in acquiring his compellingly attractive services. Being compared to Cristiano Ronaldo doesn’t do your on the field reputation any harm it must be said, and it is therefore perhaps no surprise that Manchester United have been very strongly linked, as the £80 million from the Ronaldo sale still lingers pleasingly in the bank awaiting usage.

Now his club Udinese have confirmed that a 35 million euro bid has been placed for their star attacker, but frustratingly, they refused to identify the club who placed the substantial bid. 35 million euros is equal to £29.7 million. And because Udinese have not named the bidders, it opens the door to speculation as to who it was. Udinese’s chairman Franco Soldati said:

“Sanchez is of interest of British and Italian teams.

“Somebody has already offered (for Alexis Sanchez) a figure close to 30-35 million euros but I cannot say by whom (we have received it)”.

What a tease! He justified the large asking price by citing recent Premier League signings including Liverpool’s signing of Luiz Suarez, and Chelsea’s double splurge of cash on Fernando Torres and David Luiz – a combined total of around £90 million. Doldati continued:

“A evaluation of €25 million for Sanchez? Looking at what has been paid for (Luis) Suarez, (Fernando) Torres and David Luiz in England, I think Sanchez will also apply to more than €25 million,”

“But right now we don’t want to look at the market. Each assessment will be made at the end of the season.”

The 23 year old Chilean international, who has scored 11 goals in 23 games this season for Udinese has done what most footballers do when they are linked to bigger, better clubs – repeat the question and avoid answering it. In other words, he doesn’t want to commit himself to his current club, just in case the speculation, or in this case solid bid, turns into a possible transfer:

“My future? For now I want to play football, this is my only desire.”

“At the end of the season we’ll see what happens. Udinese? We are playing very well, the coach motivates us every game as if it were a final. “

Manchester United, Chelsea, City, Inter and Real Madrid have been linked. We’ll see where he goes – it’ll be interesting. More news here whenever it comes.

Tell me what you think!

    It’s probably Man Utd – unfortunately they’re the only club in the Premiership smart enough to see that quality wingers are arguably the most important commodity in world football 🙁

    I hope LFC will get him soon.The prize too high. May be LFC can exchange with poulsen & Jovanovic?? Remember Mark Gonzales??Before he join LFC many good stories comes about him.After that….he cannot give best performance.Where is Marko Marin?The club still chasing him or others starlet,,Mata.Don’t forget left back & midfield defendsive…this area must have good player to handle.Untill now we still cannot find out replacement for Alonso & Mascherano.They are tough, efective,creatif & good tackles.

    Oh yes….PSV player Balas Duszdak is reasonable for LFC to get him.At Anfield only Gerard & Aurelio can do good free kick.Balas is young,faster,skillfull & creatif.

    in chelsea,he will be a hostage,a slave,he will die like shevchenko,deco,torress and others. In city,u will not enjoy your games,u will not play champions league. In united,u will enjoy your games,play in champions,premier,carling nd eufa cup. In united,you will be and play more than cristiano ronaldo. Bet me,united will make you be more than any player in the world. Look at chicharito
