Manchester United face being beaten by Juventus for Barcelona dazzler Alexis Sanchez.

Tuttosport says the Italian club have an agreement in place with Sanchez but have struggled to agree a fee with the Spanish club.

Juve were only willing to offer between £12-14m but the Catalans were hoping to receive £20m for the Chile star.

However it seems that a £16m fee could move the deal along.

United were also in the frame, but Sanchez has no interest in signing for Louis van Gaal's new side which will come as a huge blow to Old Trafford officials.
