Inter Milan chief Branca admits Sanchez price too rich

Inter Milan chief Marco Branca admits they're out of the running for Udinese winger Alexis Sanchez.

Branca revealed that they couldn't compete with Barcelona and Manchester City for the Chilean.

"Sanchez is a player we liked," Branca told BBC Sport.

"Manchester City raised their bid for him to €35m plus a bonus, which ruled us out of the race.

"In the end, the player preferred to go to Barcelona and they got him for €28m and a €10m bonus. Not many clubs can afford that."
