Conte makes personal call to Alexis Sanchez about Juventus move

Juventus coach Antonio Conte has made a personal approach to Barcelona winger Alexis Sanchez about moving to Turin.El Mundo Deportivo says Conte phoned Sanchez earlier this week to speak to the Chilean about his plans for him at Juve.

Barca are listening to offers for Sanchez, who is also being linked with Manchester United and Liverpool.

Conte assured the attacker that his Chile teammate and good friend Arturo Vidal would not be sold this summer and planned to base Juve's attacking structure around him.

Juve are now waiting for the green light from Barca to open negotiations about a fee for the former Udinese star.
