Inter hopeful over Sanchez capture

Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti is hopeful of signing Chilean winger Alexis Sanchez from Udinese this summer.

The Nerazzurri are in talks with the Friuli outfit to acquire the 22-year-old, who is under contract with Udinese until June 2014.

Sanchez, who has been a reported target of Manchester City, has enjoyed a fine campaign with Udinese, scoring 12 goals to help the Bianconeri qualify for the Champions League next season.

Moratti said to Inter channel: "We are talking to Sanchez.


"I don´t know how successful we will be.

"He is a player that has a lot of quality and with Udinese we have opened up negotiations.

"There is a 60% chance that he will arrive.''

Moratti has also revealed his admiration for Palermo playmaker Javier Pastore.

However, they are unlikely to make a move to acquire the Argentina international, with Palermo having slapped a 50million euros price tag on him.

"Pastore is fantastic,'' Moratti said. "But I don´t think it´s possible to enter negotiations to acquire him."
