Antonio Conte has stated that Juventus tried to sign Alexis Sanchez from Udinese when he was coach of the Bianconeri.
Conte was asked about the ongoing transfer saga with Sanchez, amid reports that both Manchester United and Manchester City are vying for his signature.
“He knows very well in my first season in Juventus we tried to buy him from Udinese and then he decided to go to Barcelona,” Conte said at a Press conference.
“He knows well my admiration for him and this was a good chance to say hello to him.
“Arsenal has to decide his future because they decide if they sell him now but his future for sure will be in a great club.”
