He was given a deserved break under the reign of Tata Martino, but with the Argentine already replaced by Luis Enrique, the 25-year-old attacker is thinking of moving to a club wherein he will be given a regular starting spot.
However, Barca president Josep Bartomeu is firm that Sanchez will not be going anywhere this offseason.
"He's not for sale," said Bartomeu.
