Alexis Sanchez to return for Chile before Barcelona - report

Roja coach Borghi had stated he would not pick the injured star until he proved his fitness in Spain, but reports from Barcelona state that he will be ready for the qualifiers
Barcelona star Alexis Sanchez could make his comeback from injury in international colours, after it was reported that his return would happen in the red of Chile during November.

The 22-year-old suffered a torn hamstring during Barca's clash with Real Sociedad in September, and Chile coach Claudio Borghi had previously stated that he would not consider the 'Nino Maravillosa' until he had appeared for his club.

Sport, however, report that Sanchez is due to return in the middle of November, which would make him available for the Roja's two next World Cup qualifiers. Barcelona's Pep Guardiola affirmed at the weekend that he would not have a problem with his man being called up for international duty, as long as Chile "returned him in good health".

Chile will meet Uruguay on November 11 in Montevideo before hosting Paraguay four days later. They began their journey to Brazil 2014 with a 4-1 defeat against Argentina followed by a 4-2 victory over Peru.
