Alexis Sanchez: Intends to stay at Barcelona

The Chile international has been in and out of coach Tito Vilanova's side this season at Camp Nou and was rumoured to be ready to leave.

With several of Europe's major clubs reportedly set to make offers, Barcelona told Sanchez that they still value him and have now convinced him not to go.

"The club has told me that they want me to stay and now I am more calm," Sanchez told reporters.

"Everyone has said they want me to stay on and I am happy to be here for another season.

"Other clubs have shown interest in me, but I am happy to remain here and to earn a place in the team, which is most important.

"My intention has always been to stay and to do the best that I can.

"I have learned a lot of new things here. Next season I intend to be at my best. I have also learned a lot on the football front."

Sanchez joined Barcelona in 2011 from Udinese for €26million (£22.2m) but has failed to become a firm favourite with the Spanish champions.

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
