The move, which was to be part of Barcelona’s attempt to sign Luis Suarez, suffered a setback after Sanchez favoured a move to Arsenal instead
The Officials of the Catalan club, have arrived in London to start formal talks with Liverpool over their interest in Suarez.
Liverpool, who are interested in Sanchez, want £80million for Suarez this summer and Barcelona are prepared to use Sanchez, who is valued at £30m, as a bait in their offer for Suarez.
But Sanchez looks likely to snub a move to Anfield, with his heart set on a switch to the Emirates Stadium and it is believed that Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger will grant the South American his wish by launching a move for the attacking midfielder.
That means only a straight cash deal for Suarez is likely to be enough to persuade Liverpool to see their prolific striker move to Catalonia.
