Tito Vilanova says that forward Alexis Sanchez will remain at Barcelona despite reported interest from Italian champions Juventus.

Barcelona coach Tito Vilanova has insisted that forward Alexis Sanchez will not leave the club anytime soon.

The 23-year-old has recently been linked with a move to Italian champions Juventus after finding it tough to play regularly for the Spanish giants.

"The boy is fine and still has a long contract," Vilanova told ESPN Espana. "I hope that he continues to play here for a long time."

Sanchez joined Barcelona from Italian club Udinese in July 2011.
