Barcelona are on the brink of signing Udinese star Alexis Sanchez. Sport says Sanchez will complete a €39m transfer to Barcelona on Monday.

The Blaugrana increased the pressure on Sanchez after seeing their offer for Giuseppe Rossi rejected by Villarreal.

They have upped the price to €39m and it's even suggested the Chile national team has given Sanchez time off from Copa America training to fly in to Barcelona on Monday for his signature.

Manchester United and Manchester City had also been in talks with Sanchez's camp in recent days.
