Barcelona consider the shock return of Alexis Sanchez

Catalan giants Barcelona are considering a shock move for Chilean striker Alexis Sanchez.

Alexis is a free agent after being released by Olympique Marseille at the end of last season.

However, there are no shortage of clubs interested in the popular striker.

Journalist Josep Capdevila has told Mundo Deportivo newspaper that Barcelona are interested in re-signing Alexis.

A one-year deal is being lined up for the Chilean, who would arrive to replace PSG-bound Ousmane Dembele.

Alexis left Barcelona in 2014 for a four-year spell at Arsenal, before being sold to Manchester United and returning to Italy with Inter.
