Alexis Sanchez transfer: Manchester United forward could leave Old Trafford on loan this summer


Manchester United are considering listing Alexis Sanchez for loan as they look to offload the Chile international this summer, according to reports.

Sanchez, the forward, has struggled since moving to Old Trafford from Arsenal last January, and he finds himself well down the pecking order since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer became the club’s caretaker manager at the end of last year.

Sanchez has endured a torrid time since swapping London for Manchester

Solskjaer is expected to be named United’s permanent manager having performed superbly in his interim role, and he has not real plans to keep Sanchez around for next season, The Sun reports.

However, the Old Trafford club accept they will struggle to offload their highest earner, with Sanchez reportedly paid a stunning £500,000-per-week.


With a sale unlikely, Manchester United are ready to offer the 30-year-old out on loan, hoping a temporary move will tempt clubs into swooping for him.
