Manchester United have made some massive mistakes over the years but signing Alexis Sanchez has to be one of Ed Woodward’s biggest regrets so far.
The Red Devils had high hopes for Sanchez after he arrived at Old Trafford from Arsenal back in 2018, as they had beaten Manchester City to his signature. Unfortunately, his transfer has turned out to be a failure.
Sanchez has spent the past season on loan at Inter Milan, although he seems to have turned his form around, finishing with a goal and two assists as the Nerrazzuri put Brescia to the sword in the Serie A earlier this month.
Despite his injury history, the 31-year-old has actually received a higher WhoScored rating than his teammate Daniel James for his performances this season. James has struggled for consistency up until now, as he has failed to score or provide an assist since the Premier League restart.
Unsurprisingly, lots of United fans slammed the “shambolic” decision, as some believe Sanchez is “better than Dan James,” with one supporter tweeting “what a joke”.
Scroll through some of the scathing reactions so far…
Yet we still have Dan James on the books. Shambolic

Conte’s winning Serie A next season. Meanwhile we’ve got Dan James who can run fast and…that’s all he can do.
