Back in 2012, Sánchez had left French side Valenciennes and was reportedly in talks with Bolton Wanderers and then-manager Owen Coyle over a free transfer move to the Reebok.
Colombia World Cup midfielder Carlos Sanchez after his agents asked the Championship club for a £6.4million contract and a suspicion over visa problems.
Memorably, Wanderers were left stunned when the player's adviser suddenly demanded more than TWICE what had been on the table before they arrived from South America.
Coyle and Bolton had made an attractive offer to the Colombian, offering more than then-Premier League sides West Ham and Reading. However, the agent's demands for £40,000-a-week over three years stunned them.
Sánchez's agents also wanted £2m up front, and a free transfer if Bolton hadn't been promoted at the end of that season.
Let's hope that Villa are equally as tough in the face of such nonsense.
