The Chilean forward was linked to a number of clubs across Europe, including Premier League outfit Manchester City. However, Spanish giants Barcelona managed to clinch the 22-year-old’s signature from Udinese.
The youngster described his touchdown at Barcelona’s El Prat airport as “like a film” to reporters after he was greeted by crowds of fans.
Despite the excitement surrounding the starlet, Sanchez believes he has a lot to learn and wants to make his own mark on the Primera Liga.
"I want to learn from players like [Lionel] Messi and Xavi - and I want to help the club win more titles,” Sanchez told reporters.
"I respect Cristiano Ronaldo, he's a great player. But I don't want to be compared to anyone."
Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi has already expressed his desire to link up with the youngster.
