Daily Mail: Alexis Sanchez reportedly considering exit from Man United
- 29-year-old Chilean moved to the Old Trafford from Arsenal as a part of a swap deal with Mkhitaryan
- Jose Mourinho has left Sanchez out of starting XI in more than a half games this season
- In his 25 games for United the Chilean winger has scored 4 goals and made 6 assists
Daily Mail reports that Sanchez and his agent are discussing a potential leave from United. It is said that the Chilean’s representative has been looking out for potential suitors across Europe. Even though United winger scored a last minute winner against Newcastle, it turned out to be his first goal for Mancunians since April.
Jose Mourinho has several options for a left-winger position – Sanchez and Martial are the most common ones. Yet, none of the two players always get a place in starting XI. It is reported that ‘The Special One’ is more impressed with Chilean’s defensive contribution, rather than his attacking effort.
29-year-old winger’s play for Arsenal was quite fascinating – in 166 games Alexis scored 80 goals and provided his teammates with 45 assists. However, his performance for United showed signs of some rapid decay. Several sources claim that one of the reasons to that may be his split with girlfriend Mayte Rodrigruez.
Sanchez' current wage at the Old Trafford is thought to be around £450.000 a week. It might a tough call for any other club to pay him this kind of money.
