MADRID - Barcelona forward Alexis Sanchez
has torn a thigh muscle and may be sidelined for up to eight
weeks, the European champions said.
The Chilean, signed from Udinese for around 37 million euros in July, was carried off on a stretcher after
falling awkwardly in a challenge during the first half of
Saturday's 2-2 La Liga draw at Real Sociedad.
"Alexis could be out for six to eight weeks," Barca said on
their official Twitter feed.
