Sanchez: I'm no Cristiano Ronaldo

New Barcelona signing Alexis Sanchez has distanced himself from comparisons with Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo.

• Barcelona agree Sanchez deal
• Xavi 'acting in Cesc's interest'

Sanchez, 22, is known for his quick feet and multiple stopovers, in the same vein as the Portuguese midfielder but maintained that, after completing his long-awaited €26 million (rising to €37.5 million) move from Udinese, he wants to be known as his own man.

"Am I going to be the Ronaldo of Barcelona? No, I just want to be Alexis Sanchez of Barcelona," he told AS. "I am proud to play in the best club in the world.

"Now I have to show my worth. Barcelona are a great team and want to win everything. I am very happy and now I have to prove the ability I have shown so far."

Sanchez also revealed his excitement at playing alongside Argentina's Lionel Messi, whom he described as the best player on the planet.

"First I have to integrate myself within the group and adapt. I am proud to play with Messi, who is the best player in the world," Sanchez added. "I never thought that a Chilean would play for Barcelona."
