Three ideal destinations for Manchester United flop Alexis Sanchez
According to the Evening Standard, Manchester United winger Alexis Sanchez is frustrated at his lack of first-team opportunities under Jose Mourinho this season. The Chilean is ready to seek a move away should his chances stay limited.
The former Arsenal attacker has been poor since his move from the Emirates in January. He has scored just 3 league goals in 21 appearances for the Red Devils. The Chilean has also made just 5 starts in the league this season, contributing with 1 goal and 2 assists. (Stats courtesy – Whoscored)
Though a summer move seems more likely, the former Arsenal winger is also willing to move in January should the right offer come in. But the issue lies elsewhere, with only few clubs capable of affording the Chilean’s massive wage package.
Here we take a look at three ideal destinations for Alexis Sanchez should he decide to make a move away.
According to the Express, Paris Saint-Germain have been keen to make a move for the Manchester United winger. The French champions are in risk of losing talisman Neymar as the Brazilian has continually been linked with a move to Real Madrid.
Sanchez would pose an ideal replacement for the former Barcelona winger. Under Thomas Tuchel, the Chilean will certainly enjoy playing an offensive system of football, one that very much suits his style.
The South American will also be playing alongside the likes of Edinson Cavani and Kylian Mbappe, which means he is destined to produce the goods.
A move to Paris Saint-Germain seems very feasible at the moment. The French champions are one of the few clubs who can afford his wage package as well.
Though this may be a controversial move, this might well work in Sanchez’s favour. Sarri’s side are at a risk of losing Eden Hazard, who has been linked with Real Madrid. Chelsea will need a new go-to man in their squad.
The Italian manager’s high-octane football should certainly help Sanchez thrive. He once took the Premier League by storm in his debut season with the Gunners and a move back to London could see him revive his career in England’s top-flight.
Sanchez made his name as a footballer playing for the Spanish champions. He was once a part of their fearsome frontline and was one of the most potent strikers.
Sanchez will surely thrive playing alongside the likes of Philippe Coutinho, Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi. All he needs is a team that suits his style of play.
