Sanchez staying with Udinese

Udinese’s much sought after winger Alexis Sanchez is set to stay with the club until the end of the season at least, according to his manager Francesco Guidolin.
The 22-year-old, who starred for Chile during last summer’s 2010 World Cup in South Africa, has been linked with a move away during the January transfer window with Chelsea and Manchester United being credited with an interest in the player.
A switch to one of Europe’s elite clubs appeals to the attacker, but with his contract not due to expire until 2014, Udinese are in no hurry to part with their asset.
Speaking to Rai Sport, Guidolin revealed: “I know Udinese are a serious club. The club have reiterated that Sanchez will remain at Udinese until the end of the season and I have no doubts on this matter.
“Of course, if a tempting offer would arrive it would be right for the club to evaluate it, but I believe that Alexis can still grow from here on until the end of the season if he stayed with us.
“After that, he is destined, considering the quality he has shown for some time, to join a top club.”

Italian and European champions Inter are also thought to be keen on Sanchez, but President Massimo Moratti stated yesterday that the team would not bring in any more players after signing Andrea Ranocchia earlier this month.
The Chilean’s performances have helped the Friulani to eighth in the the table with 30 points, only one away from the European spots. Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
