Barca raise Alexis price

Barcelona want €40m for Alexis Sanchez after the forward impressed for Chile in the World Cup.

Alexis helped La Roja to the Round of 16, where they were beaten on penalties by hosts Brazil.

Marca report that there are a number of clubs interested in Alexis, while Barca could also use him as part of the offer for Liverpool’s Luis Suarez.

A €40m fee has been mooted with the likes of Arsenal, Juventus and Manchester United interested, as well as the Merseyside club.

It’s claimed the Gunners were willing to pay €35m but Barca will hold out for their full valuation.

Alexis would, however, prefer to stay at Barca, and will only leave Camp Nou if he is told by Luis Enrique that he is no longer wanted.
