Chelsea and Manchester United will lose out on winger

Sources from Chile have claimed that Chelsea and Manchester United target Alexis Sanchez has his heart set on a move to Barcelona, ending speculation that the 22 year old may move to a Premier League side.

The player has been part of the biggest transfers story in June with interest from numerous giant European clubs. Despite Chelsea having made a larger initial bid, it was quickly matched by Barcelona to avoid any last minute issues but it is now highly likely that both Manchester United will miss out on the winger.

Manchester City were also involved for a short while until realising that he would prefer to join the European Champions, therefore switching focus to other individuals. For Chelsea it means they can now focus their attentions on other targets with the likes of Javier Pastore of Palermo, and Porto’s Moutinho.
