Some fans think a potential sale would be madness due to the lack of attacking options; meanwhile, other fans can’t wait to see the back of the Chile international.
Sanchez has been on the periphery of the Old Trafford side since joining from rivals Arsenal in a swap deal with Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
However, despite the 30-year-old’s bad performances in the north-west, fans couldn’t be more split on whether Sanchez should leave or not.
Here is a selection of tweets from Manchester United fans after Roma’s bid to sign the player:
Get it done! lol asap free up that huge wage bill and invest it in more players like Harry Maguire n Wan bissaka who are workers on the field n genuinely humble n delighted 2 play for the team the club n the fans and will honour the badge and actually earn their pay packet

Need squad depth would be stupid to let him go now.

Would be a big mistake. The season is long and we need experience player like him as we have already offloaded Lukaku.

No. We don’t have a replacement. Would be a stupid decision to let him go at this time
