Luciano Moggi, former controversial director of Italian giants Juventus, has urged the Old Lady management to sign FC Barcelona striker Alexis Sanchez.

Juventus are constantly being linked with a move for Chile striker Alexis Sanchez and Moggi has now asked his former club to make whatever they can to sign the player.

“Juventus’ main priority this summer should be the signing of Alexis Sanchez,” Moggi said in his interview with Tuttosport. “He has already shown in the past that he can add something extra in Serie A during his time at Udinese.”

The accused of Calciopoli, Moggi feels that Juventus must plan well in order to make their mark in Europe next season and the capture of Alexis Sanchez will be a good step forward.

“From there one, you will have to be ready to sell important players and replace them with even better alternatives. Back in 2001, we sold Zinedine Zidane and got back Pavel Nedved, Lilian Thuram and Gianluigi Buffon.

“The Juventus of Fabio Capello had leaders of various national teams, like Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Emerson and Fabio Cannavaro, players who could change a team.”

Midfielder Arturo Vidal has been linked with a move to either Barcelona or Real Madrid. However, Moggi has advised his former club to hold onto the midfielder as he is the key member of current Juve squad.

“I would never sacrifice Arturo Vidal, though, and the same goes for Buffon, Andrea Pirlo and Giorgio Chiellini.”

Italian giants have won three Serie A titles in a row and now looking to extend their domination in Europe. The Old Lady are in the market for a quality midfielder as Sporting Director Pavel Nedved is reportedly not happy with the performances of on loan striker Pablo Osvaldo.

The situation of Alexis Sanchez is not very encouraging at Barcelona as the Chilean is struggling to get the regular playing time at Camp Nou. The likes of Messi, Neymar and Cesc Fabregas are ahead of him in the pecking order and Sanchez wants to get more playing time.

Alexis Sacnhez has a good amount of playing experience in Serie A. The Chilean played with Udinese between 2006 to 2011, where he scored 20 goals in 95 appearances.

Barcelona management is said to have planned a complete makeover of their side this summer and Sanchez is not part of their future plans. Barca have decided to sell some of their squad members in order to generate more funds for the acquisition of their other top targets.

Defence is the area of biggest concern with Barcelona at the moment and new manager Luis Enrique is looking for the signing of top quality defenders in coming days.
