Sanchez: Finally completes Barca move
Barcelona have confirmed the signing of Chilean star Alexis Sanchez from Udinese.
The European champions have been locked in talks with Udinese for a number of weeks, and have fended off interest from a host of clubs including Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea, to land his signature.
And Sanchez has now agreed a five-year deal at Camp Nou, putting pen to paper after the clubs finalised terms.
Barcelona have agreed to pay an initial €26million with an additional €11.5million in add-ons.
The player will be unveiled by Barca over the weekend.
