Jose Mourinho and Alexis Sanchez are both fighting for survival at Manchester United, and while the manager might be winning his battle, the player is hardly getting a chance to win his.
The no. 7 at Old Trafford has had a year to forget, as not only has form been tough to come by, but game-time has been a luxury that has proven almost impossible to afford.
Sanchez has been heavily out of favour this season, making appearances from the bench more often than not, and trying to make the best of whatever limited opportunities come his way.
However, latest exclusion from United’s Champions League squad to face Young Boys has left the Chilean international fuming, and according to reports, that might just be the last nail in his coffin.
Daily Star writes that Sanchez’s determination to quit Old Trafford has been given a massive push by Mourinho’s recent snub, and there seems to be no changing his mind anymore.
The player has mentioned it to his friends that his time in England is almost at its end, and PSG is now the dream destination.
With him earning £500,000-a-week, there is no denying that the output from Alexis should be much higher than what it currently is, but limited opportunities do carry an equal part of the blame to be taken.
With only 1 goal in the Premier League this season, Sanchez joins a long list of underperforming players at Old Trafford, as the Red Devils’ ship just does not seem to stop sinking.
What once seemed a move of great promise, now remains to end as nothing but the costliest mistake ever.
