Barcelona have agreed to meet Udinese's 40 million asking price for Alexis Sanchez - but with a catch. Sport says Barca are willing to cough up the readies to land the Chilean dazzler, but wants to pay €27 million up front, with the remaining €13 million due in bonuses.
The deal would allow Barca to pursue their other transfer targets - including Arsenal's Cesc Fabregas - as they work to a limited summer transfer budget.
Udinese are open to the deal - but want the €13 million guaranteed. Barca are insisting the cash only be paid if certain targets - like winning the Champions League - are met.
