Barcelona have rejected three bids from clubs abroad including Manchester United, Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain claim Spanish media outlet Sport. The 25-year old cost Barca around £30million back in 2011, and has often been frustrated by being utilised as a substitute.
You’d imagine Sanchez would be available at a cut-price deal due to the lack of football he’s had at the Camp Nou, but his last season was his best by far. In 54 appearances in all competitions he managed an impressive 21 goals and 15 assists – highlighting Barcelona’s reluctance to sell.
Pedro is usually the preferred option out on the right-wing, and the Catalan side have confirmed that Gerard Deulofeu will be returning this summer, so it looks like one of the three will certainly be on their way out.
Manchester United’s wingers struggled badly last season, with the exception of Adnan Januzaj. You could argue that Antonio Valencia, Nani and Ashley Young all need to be moved on this summer with fresh faces coming in to replace them.
