Barcelona in shock ‘advanced talks’ to bring back 47-goal forward

Barcelona are reportedly in ‘advanced talks’ to bring back one of their former star players, on-loan, in the January transfer window, as the former champions scramble to do deals on a budget.

Alexis Sánchez currently at Inter Milan could be set for a shock return to Barcelona, says a report via Sky Sports Transfer Centre, with a deal to bring the 47-goal forward back set to trigger a domino effect.

Sánchez’s return would see Luuk De Jong’s loan at Barcelona end, return to Sevilla, before being moved on to Inter Milan – as a replacement for the Chilean.

Having departed Barcelona in 2014 for Arsenal, Alexis Sánchez starred once again in north London, before ill-fated moves to Manchester United and Inter Milan.
