The Premier League giants go head-to-head to secure Sanchez’s signature.
Barcelona forward Alexis Sanchez looks likely to leave the Nou Camp this summer with Chelsea, Manchester United and Arsenal all in the hunt to sign the Chile international, according to Mundo Deportivo.
Yet the Premier League trio will face stiff competition from Italian powerhouses Inter Milan and Juventus, as the former Udinese star is courted by some of Europe’s finest.
The 24-year-old suffered a dip in form this season following his £22.8million move to Catalonia in 2011, although a strong finish to the campaign has shown his credentials to potential buyers.
It’s believed that new United boss David Moyes and likely successor at Stamford Bridge, Jose Mourinho, will have significant transfer funds to spend this summer and the attack-minded Sanchez could be an ideal quality signing.
It’s a similar story for the Gunners as a mass exodus at the Emirates could see manager Arsene Wenger having a £70million kitty for summer recruitment.
However, the English sides stand to go head-to-head with their Italian counterparts as Inter and Juve join the race to land the Chilean.
The Milan club’s lack of Eurpoean football may put Sanchez off a move to the San Siro, but La Bianconeri wrapped up their second successive Serie A title this season and Antonio Conte’s men are improving all the time.
Sanchez has scored 10 goals and provided 14 assists in all competitions for Barca this season, finishing strongly in La Liga and scoring three in his last four league appearances for the club.
