Udinese hav revealed that they have turned down a £30million bid for Chile star Alexis Sanchez.
“For me Sanchez is worth the same as Lionel Messi,” Udinese owner Giampaolo Pozzo said. “It’s difficult to find other players of his level. Only two or three players are born like him in a given generation. We have an offer of 35m euros (£30m) which we have turned down. I do not want to name the club, out of respect. Sanchez is young and we would like him to stay for another year. Besides, we believe he is worth much more.'”
Sanchez scored 12 goals in 31 league appearances for Udinese this season, is under contract until June 2014.
