MADRID - BARCELONA have agreed to sign Udinese's Chilean forward Alexis Sanchez for 26 million euros (S$56.8 million) plus a possible 11.5 million euros in variables as the Spanish and European champions made their first addition to their squad for next season.
'Udinese and FC Barcelona have reached a final agreement for the transfer of Alexis Sanchez,' Barca said in a statement on their website on Thursday.
The 22-year-old will sign a five-year contract after completing a medical on Monday, the statement added.
The highly-rated Sanchez will compete for a place in Barca coach Pep Guardiola's starting 11 with World Player of the Year Lionel Messi and Spain forwards David Villa and Pedro.
His move to the Catalan capital is likely to trigger the departure of Spain Under-21 forward Bojan Krkic to Udinese's Serie A rivals AS Roma.
Sanchez started out as a youth recruit at Chilean club Cobreloa, where his goal-scoring exploits earned him the nickname 'wonder kid'. -- REUTERS
