Alexis Sanchez made a name for himself in Serie A with Udinese, and while his big-money move to Barcelona hasn't been a failure, the Chilean hasn't set Spain alight in the way he was expected to, either.
The Catalans could soon be looking for a new manager and look set to lose a number of first-team personnel. It might be a good time for the 25-year-old forward to look for a fresh challenge elsewhere, and it would be no surprise if he favoured a move back to Italy, where he played his best football.
Speaking recently to TuttoMercatoWeb.com (h/t Goal.com), his former coach Pasquale Marino suggested that Juve would be the perfect destination for the wide forward:
I think Alexis could fit very well into Conte's gameplan. He can cover both the role of second striker or as a winger in a trident.
His versatility makes Alexis a factor that can helps him solve many coaching headaches. You need balance but a trident of Tevez-Llorente-Alexis is feasible as Alexis and Tevez know how to work in the defensive side of things.
This past year Alexis has had several fitness problems but, this season, he has improved a lot despite little continuity. When playing at clubs like Barcelona, it is normal to have problems playing all of the time but his performances have always been positive.
He's a great professional with a great work ethic and this will help him keep growing.
