Chilean hot-shot doesn’t see himself going anywhere.
Barcelona forward Alexis Sanchez has waved away rumours that he is set to move on from the club by insisting that he feels settled in the Catalonian capital and plans to be there for a while yet, Sky Sports reports.
The Spanish champions won the race to land his signature from Italian side Udinese, and though he was a high profile signing he has consistently faced a struggle to cement a regular first team spot in the side.
He has generally impressed when he’s been given the chance, but has always faced some stiff competition in front of him, but despite the squad packed to the rafters with world class attackers he has admitted that he may need to accept that his role is a supporting role.
It has been suggested that the 24-year-old could be on his way to the Premier League with the likes of Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea all interested in his services, but he has moved quickly to rubbish those reports by insisting that he is happy where he is.
“I always felt (at home) in Barcelona, with the desire to play 100 per cent every game I fight,” he told Le 10 Sport.
“Fortunately, I was able to score goals from the beginning of the season. I do not intend to stop there, we must continue to move forward.
“It is very important for a striker to score, especially when you trust your coach and your team-mates.”
