The retired forward thinks that his compatriot will thrive at Barca under Guardiola, and also offers his opinion on Brazilian striker Neymar
Ex-Real Madrid striker Ivan Zamorano believes that Alexis Sanchez will be a huge success at Barcelona.

The Chilean winger is believed to be inching ever nearer to completing a transfer to the Catalan club, and yesterday it was revealed that Sanchez' agent was in Barcelona to thrash out a deal for the player.

Zamorano has dispelled any notions that the 22-year-old might not be up to La Liga standard, telling Marca: ''Alexis [Sanchez] has an advantage. Already, he has experience. He has triumphed in the world's toughest league, which is Italian, definitely.

''Sanchez is a guy who knows how to listen and he will adapt to [Pep] Guardiola."


The Santiago Bernabeu legend, who also enjoyed spells with Sevilla and Inter, went on to discuss Brazilian sensation Neymar, and revealed he was highly impressed by the 19-year-old's capabilities.

Both Real Madrid and Barcelona have been linked with a move for the emerging Santos star, and Zamorano added: "He [Neymar] has
huge potential. He can be a decisive player.

"The only thing missing with Neymar is experience, but that will be earned over time.''
