Three days after Chile went out of the Copa America, Alexis Sánchez was presented as the first signing of the 2011/12 season. He was still on holiday when Barça played Hajduk Split, Internacional de Porto Alegre and Bayern Munich, and also the American tour, having arrived from Udinese for a fixed 26 million euros plus 11.5 in variables. "It has been my dream since a child to play for Barça" said the first ever Chilean to don the famous FCB jersey.
