4 Reasons Why Juventus Signing Alexis Sanchez Is a Good Idea
1. Antonio Conte has the best back three and most complete midfield triumvirate in Europe.
If you add Alexis—who was at times unstoppable in a deep-lying forward role for Udinese—to compliment Fernando Llorente, the Bianconeri could turn into a dynasty.
2. Llorente can hold up the ball; he is strong in the air; but most importantly, he's at home when the ball is played to his feet.
He is a complete forward, who will keep opposing defenders preoccupied thereby creating space for Sanchez to attack.
3. Alexis is gun-shy at Barcelona due to his preferred position being occupied by a living legend that is Lionel Messi.
At Juve, Sanchez can be the man where he becomes the focal point of the offense, which means we'll be seeing the Udinese version.
4. Chilean compatriots Arturo Vidal and Mauricio Isla will help Alexis ease into life in Turin therefore extinguishing the possibility of him feeling like an outsider in his first few weeks at the club.
Alexis Sanchez or Sebastian Giovinco?
Giovinco gives away the ball away 26.7 percent of the time he passes; he isn't consistent; and he doesn't have the presence of an Udinese Alexis.
Sanchez will have the edge over Sebastian because the Chilean can communicate with Fernando.
Then there's the connection with Arturo, so the transitional play into the final third should be great.
Going to Inter?
Alexis joining the Nerazzurri makes little sense because they're not going to win Serie A anytime soon and there's hardly any stability at the club with Andrea Stramaccioni on the chopping block.
The Bianconeri would be the right choice for Sanchez with the Chilean connection, a win-now approach and him being able to play alongside Llorente in the "2" of the 3-5-2.
