Report: Juventus falling short of Sanchez valuation

Alexis Sanchez Chile

There's a significant difference between Juventus' offer and Barcelona's valuation for Alexis Sanchez, reports suggest.

The future of Alexis Sanchez remains in doubt with reports that Juventus aren't willing to match his price tag.

Sanchez enjoyed an excellent season with Barcelona last term, but it has been widely reported that the Catalan side are willing to sell him.

Juventus are said to be determined to sign the Chilean international with Liverpool and Arsenal also believed to be interested.

However, Barcelona president Josep Bartomeu has publicly denied that Sanchez is for sale.

And now there are reports in Italy that Juventus may be priced out of the market even if Barcelona do want to sell Sanchez.

Italian newspaper Tuttosport indicates that Sanchez wants to return to Serie A, where he played for Udinese, and could agree a £3m contract.

But the paper believes that Barcelona want to wait until after the World Cup to do business, probably in the hope that Sanchez's value rises.

At the moment Juventus are reportedly only willing to offer £12m while Barcelona are holding out for at least £20m.

Tuttosport suggests that Juventus may be forced to throw in Arturo Vidal or Fernando Llorente if they are to have a chance of signing Sanchez.

This may open the door to Liverpool if they are willing to step in with £20m before football's showpiece event this summer.
