According to the very reliable Gianluca Di Marzio, Liverpool are extremely interested in signing Alexis Sanchez and they are a serious threat to Juventus now.

 

Alexis Sanchez has been linked to Juventus and Liverpool for a few weeks now after falling out of favour at Camp Nou under new manager Luis Enrique. Barcelona are ready to sell him if a right offer is made to them. The Chilean international has been in brilliant form in the World Cup and will be a great signing for any club. Reports suggest Barcelona want €30m for Alexis Sanchez.

Sanchez made 34 appearances in La Liga for Barcelona last season, scoring 19 goals and providing 12 assists.

Gianluca Di Marzio also suggests, Barcelona are looking at the possibility of signing Luis Suarez and if Alexis Sanchez can be used as a makeweight for Suarez.

Yesterday, Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo reported the same, they claimed Liverpool striker’s move to Barcelona is at an “advanced stage” and Barcelona might also use Alexis Sanchez as a part of the deal. According to Mundo Deportivo, Luis Suarez has release clause of £68m in his contract, but this is reduced to £52m if he joins Barcelona or Real Madrid.

Recently, Suarez admitted he is happy at Liverpool and does not want to leave.

Luis Suarez : “I signed the contract because I love it here and I’m so happy here. If you’re not happy here you don’t sign any contract.

“Liverpool’s team for me is one of the best in the world because nobody here in the dressing room thinks I am better than another and the people here inside Melwood work very well.

“I love it here and this mentality I like because maybe in some other dressing rooms I am bigger than you and another bigger, it’s difficult for the team-mates to play together on the pitch in something like that.”

Suarez has scored 31 goals this season, equalling the record held by Alan Shearer and Cristiano Ronaldo, despite missing the first five games of the season.
