Barcelona was able to steal the deal away for 26 million, from such teams as Manchester City and Chelsea who had their eyes on Sanchez.

The fact that Barcelona signed a 5 year contract with Alexis Sanchez, shows the club's strong commitment to develop the young striker into a star player and implement his enormous talent.

Considering his out of the ordinary performance at Copa America Argentina 2011, Sanchez should make a strong addition to the Barcelona's attacking game.
