Juventus not willing to sacrifice Vidal for Sanchez

Alexis Sanchez Chile

Juventus may give up on Barcelona man Alexis Sanchez because Antonio Conte won't let Arturo Vidal leave.

Barcelona continue to fight off advances for Chilean international Alexis Sanchez and it seems Juventus may stop trying to sign him.

Sanchez was excellent for Barcelona last term but it had been believed that the Catalan side would accept a bid for him.

However, there have been reports that Barcelona have turned down offers from Liverpool and Manchester United for the forward in the last few days.

The Italian press had reported that Juventus were in a strong position in the hunt for Sanchez, who used to play in Serie A for Udinese, but now the Old Lady may be ready to look elsewhere.

According to Sportmediaset, Juventus' only realistic chance of signing Sanchez is in exchange for star midfielder and compatriot Arturo Vidal.

The Italian website believes that Barcelona have demanded the inclusion of the 25-year-old in a deal because Juventus can't meet their cash valuation.

However, Juventus boss Antonio Conte is said to be completely unwilling to let Vidal leave because he was such an integral part of last season's Scudetto success.

Without Vidal as a bargaining chip, Juventus appear to be sliding out of the hunt for Sanchez and may well find an alternative target.

Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain are all believed to be still chasing Sanchez but new Barcelona boss Luis Enrique is fighting to keep him at the Camp Nou.
