Alexis close to Juve – report

It has been claimed in Italy that Juventus are close to confirming the signing of Alexis Sanchez from Barcelona.

Mundo Deportivo cites a report from today’s Gazzetta dello Sport that says negotiations between Barca and Juve are on-going but talks are heading for a conclusion that would see the Chile international return to Serie A.

Juventus would prefer to wrap up the signing before the start of the World Cup as they fear a strong performance from the former Udinese man would see his price increase.

It’s suggested that the clubs are also talking about Paul Pogba, who has also been reported as a Barca target for the summer.

Barca full-back Adriano has also been rumoured as a target for the Italian champions, Mundo Deportivo say.
