Sanchez future still undecided

The Chile winger has been strongly linked with a move to European

champions Barcelona, but a deal is far from being completed.

A rivals Inter Milan are also interested in the 22-year-old, who is

under contract with Udinese until June 2014. “There are no definite

agreements regarding Sanchez,” Larini told Gazzetta dello Sport.

“We have no need to sell the forward, who is improving and can

still do better. “If no agreement is reached, we would be happy (to

keep him).” Larini revealed Inter had inquired about the player

earlier this year, but questioned whether they would now be able to

afford him. “Inter asked us about the player back in January,” said

Larini. “But we did not even begin any type of negotiation because

we wanted to keep him at least until June. “At that time his value

was different to what it is now and it has now become difficult for

the Nerazzurri to compete. “They have proposed an exchange of

players to be part of the deal, but there are other clubs that are

ahead of them right now.” Sanchez, who is valued at 50million

euros, scored 12 goals last season to help Udinese finish fourth

and qualify for the Champions League. Udinese midfielder Gokhan

Inler has still to agree personal terms with Napoli before he can

complete his move to the Azzurri. The Switzerland international is

set to make the transfer this summer in a deal worth an estimated

£17.8 million. “It is a situation that regards Inler and

Napoli as an agreement has already been reached between the two

clubs,” Larini told Gazzetta dello Sport. “The deal will only go

ahead if the three parties are in agreement. “The player has yet to

agree personal terms and I think that could soon happen. “Inler and

his agent will decide one way or another.” Larini has not ruled out

the possibility that Inler, who is under contract with the Friuli

outfit until June 2014, could remain at Udinese. “We believe the

player is happy in Udine so we don’t exclude anything,” he said.

The 27-year-old Inler, who was also a reported target of Juventus,

joined Udinese in the summer of 2008 from FC Zurich. Inler scored

three goals in 33 league appearances for Udinese to help them

finish fourth in Serie A last season
