Alexis’ Man United nightmare set to end this summer
Manchester United are looking to offload Alexis Sanchez during the summer transfer window following a disappointing Old Trafford career.
Sanchez’s move to Manchester United really hasn’t gone to plan.
The Chilean left Arsenal in an attempt to challenge for the Premier League title and also a pay rise.
However, despite scoring 80 goals and assisted 45 in 166 Arsenal appearances, Sanchez has failed to recreate that form for Man United.
He’s only scored five goals in 41 appearances which is a shocking return for a forward of his quality.
Now, Manchester United have had enough and are looking to offload him.
Where will Alexis end up?
According to the Independent, Man United want rid of Sanchez ‘to help regulate the wage bill’.
Their report explains: United will meanwhile look to offload Alexis Sanchez to help regulate the wage bill, especially as David De Gea has not yet signed a new contract amid high demands.
The goalkeeper wants to be made the best-paid player at the club.
The wages freed up by Sanchez’s departure could be used for De Gea’s contract to make him the best-paid player.
The big question now is who would take Alexis?
It was revealed by the Times back in November that Sanchez wants to join Paris Saint-Germain but its yet to be seen if they want him.
Inter Milan and Real Madrid were also tentatively linked by the Independent around the same time.
Though, it is unlikely that either club would be interested now.
While the decision has now been made to ship Alexis out, selling him may prove very difficult.
