It’s easy to forget that Alexis Sanchez is still a Manchester United player. Heck, I guess it’s something that all us Red Devils fans have tried hard to forget about…
That said, the mega-money Chilean is still technically on the books at Old Trafford, despite spending the current season on loan with Inter Milan.
It’s no great surprise to hear that the ex-Arsenal player has struggled in Italy, with Sanchez seemingly set for a return to Manchester upon the conclusion of this season.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s job of trying to move away from Sanchez is only going to get tougher, too. Those massive wages aren’t going away while the player is another year older.
Apparently, London club West Ham have ‘initiated contact’ with the agent of the 30-year-old United star – ahead of a potential summer move back to London.
Fernando Felicevich has a real job on his hands, with United all-but confirming they have no intention of keeping Sanchez at Old Trafford.
I don’t mean to upset West Ham fans, but this is the sort of move they’d make… They love bringing the big-name player to the London Stadium, though in this case, it’d take some extra effort to afford Sanchez’s astronomically high wages. Honestly, I’m not sure it’s feasible, though I certainly wish it was.
