Sanchez close to Reading move?
Reading are close to agreeing a deal for Colombian international Carlos Sanchez, according to Sky Sports.
The 26-year old is on the verge of leaving French side Valenciennes on a free transfer this summer, prompting interest from Brian McDermott and other teams in Italy. Valenciennes finished 12th in Ligue 1 this campaign, with Sanchez being a regular in the side.
Other reports have suggested that talks have broken down due to high wage demands from the former River de Uruguay player, asking for around £40,000-per-week. Sanchez is a central midfielder with a defensive-outlook, along with good composure on the ball.
