Barcelona could re-sign Alexis Sanchez this summer, according to reports.
Sanchez future at Arsenal is currently in doubt following the forward’s decision to stall on signing a new contract. The Chile international’s contract expires at the end of next season but has failed to reach an agreement with the club on a new deal.
He is already attracting interests from a lot of top clubs and reports in Spain suggest that his former club could join the race for his services.
According to Spanish Outlet Don Balon via the Express, Barcelona would pursue a move for Sanchez if Jorge Sampaoli takes over as manager this summer.
Luis Enrique’s future as Barcelona boss is currently his doubt following a poor campaign which has left them on the verge of Champions League exit and behind Real Madrid in the La Liga title race.
Sampaoli who is currently in charge of Sevilla is one of the manager’s on Barcelona’s wish list to replace Enrique and reports believe the former Chile manager will make Sanchez his priority target if he moves to the Camp Nou.
Sanchez enjoyed a very good relationship with Sampaoli at the Chile national team and it is believed he could be tempted to work with the Argentine tactician again.
Arsenal’s hope of keeping Sanchez is looking increasingly unlikely by the day and a move to Barcelona will be a big blow to everyone of us associated with the club. Sanchez has always insisted that he wants to win titles but our chances of doing so has faded in recent weeks which could just tempt him to leave.
