Barcelona sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta has revealed the club has already received bids for Arsenal and Liverpool target Alexis Sanchez - but refused to confirm whether he is going to stay at the Nou Camp.

Although the 25-year-old is unlikely to move away reports in Spain claim that the Catalans have put the Chilean international on the market with a €40m price tag in order to fund a move to bring Liverpool striker Luis Suarez to the Nou Camp.

Sanchez has attracted the attention of a host of European clubs after becoming the toast of the World Cup with three goals in four games and recent reports have claimed Arsenal were leading the race to secure his services ahead of Liverpool and Manchester United.

Since then, Zubizarreta has not only confirmed such speculation but also admits the forward could leave the Nou Camp this summer.

"There have been proposals from other clubs for Alexis but I do not know how things will end. We are looking for a good solution for everyone," he was quoted as saying by Marca.

Despite scoring 19 La Liga goals last season it is understood Sanchez does not feature in the plans of new Barcelona manager Luis Enrique.

The Catalans already have Lionel Messi, Neymar, Pedro and Gerard Deulofeu in their attacking ranks and with the expected signing of Suarez there will not be place for Sanchez.

Some reports suggested that Pedro could also eventually leave the Nou Camp but while Zubizarreta refused to confirm Sanchez's status he said the Spaniard is "not on sale".

"He is not in the market. I expect him to be with us for many years."

Meanwhile, the Barcelona sporting director was unable to clear up speculation surrounding the future of club legend Xavi Hernandez.

"If Xavi stays in the club we will be happy because he will provide us everything he has. After his holidays we will discuss his future and make a decision," he said.
