Barcelona Confirm Alexis Sanchez Signing From Udinese
After weeks of “will he, won’t he”, Chilean wonderkid Alexis Sanchez has now officially joined the Catalan Club.
A statement on club’s official website read:
Sanchez, who started his youth career at Cobreloa, made 45 appearances for the Chilean club’s senior team, scoring 12 goals, before being transferred to Serie A club Udinese. The player spent two seasons on loan at Chilean club Colo Colo and Argentine club River Plate before making his Serie A debut against Juventus in 2008.
Sanchez’ performances have been sensational ever since his return from Argentina and Barcelona had to face stiff competition from both Manchester based clubs to sign the Chile international.
Sanchez possesses express pace and a pin point delivery and is looked upon as a long term successor of Spaniard Andres Iniesta.
