BARCELONA, Spain – Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola says his main priority is to reinforce the team's attack with Chile forward Alexis Sanchez, while the Spanish champion still hopes to also reach a deal for Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas.
Guardiola said on Tuesday that ''we need a forward. We have more players in midfield than in attack. Bojan (Krkic) and Jeffren (Suarez) both want to leave, so the attack is more important.''
Barcelona sports director Andoni Zubizarreta added that a deal with Sanchez's Italian club Udinese was ''in the final stretch.''
Guardiola is entering his fourth season at the helm of the Catalan giants, and reaffirmed that the club would ''try to the very last minute'' to also bring in Fabregas.
