Barcelona is on the verge of signing Alexis Sanchez. Not so fast says Gianpaolo Pozzo, Udinese's owner who is demanding €50m for the Chilean striker.
In addition, he is less impressed by Barca's sweeteners of Bojan Krkic and Jonathan Soriano and has plumped instead for Jeffren and Giovani Dos Santos.
€50m is €5m more than Barca's proposed transfer budget. They can obviously dip into their accounts and come up with the additional funds but that leaves them with no Cesc Fabregas deal. Barca have made contact with Arsenal over their captain but tabled no offer.
