The Chilean attacker was regarded as one of the best wide forwards in European football when he moved to Old Trafford almost a year ago but he hasn’t done too much to justify his huge weekly salary since.
Sanchez has been ruled out until the New Year after sustaining a hamstring injury, but it’s been reported that his displays in training hadn’t been up to much anyway.
Re Alexis Sanchez:
1) He was out sprinted by Juan Mata
2) The club misjudged his commercial appeal in South America apparently. pic.twitter.com/c2Cc3NT0JT

According to the Mirror, Sanchez was out-sprinted by Mata in a series of routine tests by the club’s medical and fitness department, and whilst Mata is a perfectly fine player, he’s not exactly known for his lung-bursting turn of pace, is he?
This is just the latest setback in Sanchez’s United spell, but should the club look for a buyer to take him off their hands?
What do you think?
