Tuttosport are today suggesting that Juventus are ready to make a bid for Barcelona’s Alexis Sanchez at the end of the season.
Emissaries of the Old Lady will allegedly make initial contact with Barca in Milan today before their Champions League tie against the Rossoneri this evening.
Juventus are hoping to do the kind of deal which Milan secured when they netted Zlatan Ibrahimovic from the Nou Camp outfit.
Director general Beppe Marotta is said to be prepared to pay €5m for the forward’s one-year loan. They are then willing to offer €20m in the summer of 2014 to sign him outright.
Sanchez, 24, joined the Spanish giants from Udinese in July 2011 for a basic €26m fee – and an extra €11.5m if certain bonus clauses were activated.
The South American has struggled for regular action at Barca this season.
