The Barcelona man is being heavily linked with a Camp Nou exit, with a reunion of sorts on the cards in Turin.
Barcelona are seemingly a club in transition, with significant changes in the playing and coaching personnel expected this summer at Camp Nou.
One of the players that is being widely speculated as being surplus to requirements is Alexis Sanchez.
The Chile international has been linked with all the major English sides over recent months and years, but Arsenal and Liverpool are the two Premier League outfits that have been most mentioned of late.
Despite considerable English interest, Juventus are thought to have the inside track on his signature this time round – and there is a key reason why the South American flyer may relish the chance to sign for the Bianconeri.
Sanchez shot to fame during his time in Italy with Udinese – a club that have had an incredible amount of international players come and go over the last five years.
Although the Chilean left to go to Catalunya, a host of others headed for Turin.
Current Juventus first-teamers Kwadwo Asamoah, Mauricio Isla and Simone Pepe all played alongside Sanchez during his three-year spell in Udinese's first-team, with Francesco Guidolin forging an enviable team spirit in the club in his time there.
The chance for a reunion of sorts between Sanchez and his former team-mates would surely appeal to the attacker, as he talks fondly of his time in Serie A with the Udine-based club.
With some of the Juve stars from his Udinese days potentially having a word in Sanchez’s ear, a move to the Italian champions looks custom-made.
Could Sanchez's former team-mates have an influence on his choice?
