Barca disappoints Juventus

28 May 2014 [11:50] - TODAY.AZ
Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu says Alexis Sanchez is not for sale, after the forward was linked with a move to Juventus.

The Chile international has had a productive year at Camp Nou, scoring 19 goals in 34 league games, although question marks remain over his long-term place in the side due to competition for places from Pedro, Lionel Messi and Neymar.

The Chile international has long been a reported target for Juventus, who are looking to bolster their wide attacking options as they prepare to switch their tactical approach from 3-5-2 to 4-3-3, but Bartomeu insists the 25-year-old will not leave.
"He's not for sale," Bartomeu told El Mercurio. "He has a contract with us and is an important part of the squad.

"I know nothing about interest from Juventus. No one has made an official offer.

"Sanchez has had a great season and, of course, will be a part of Barcelona next season as well."

The 51-year-old also talked about the reported interest from his own club in Juve midfielder Arturo Vidal.

"Vidal? These are just rumours. Personally, I know nothing about that," he added.
