Money will decide Sanchez future

Udinese are well aware of the fact that it will be difficult for them to keep hold of Alexis Sanchez in the summer.

The Chilean has been a revelation at the Friuli this term and made the headlines on Sunday with four goals in the 7-0 mauling of Palermo.

Already associated with Inter, Chelsea, Manchester United and Barcelona before his latest showing, he's likely to be one of Serie A's most wanted in the summer.

"We'll do all that we can to keep hold of him and our other stars," Udinese President Franco Soldati told Radio Sportiva.

"However, we are well aware that we are only a small club so we will have to evaluate any eventual offers that arrive at the end of the season."

So how much will the 2010 World Cup player cost?

"Sanchez is now worth at least €20-25m," Soldati added. "There is certainly interest from the great Spanish and Italian clubs.

"I think he would quickly adapt to Barcelona," Soldati added. "Nevertheless, if we sell him then we will do so to the club who simply offers us more money."
