Does Alexis Sanchez have a future at Manchester United? It looks extremely unlikely right now.
Indeed, the Chilean is currently out with another injury and might not get back into the starting line-up anymore this season, considering However, the Red Devils don’t want to give up on their prized possession anytime soon.
According to reports from the Sun earlier this week, United are ready to let him go out on loan next season. Apparently, United are convinced it’ll be difficult to sell such a high-earning player and want to loan him out instead. Well, Sanchez isn’t some up and coming youngster who will gain many suitors to sign him on loan.
The European heavyweights have tracked his disappointments at United and he won’t fit into any prominent side anymore. The relatively mediocre sides cannot afford him even if he takes a pay-cut, as the Chilean’s now stuck in a weird limbo at United.
So, in light of such reports earlier this week, Ed Woodward needs to make a crucial decision in the summer.
Be it talking Sanchez into respectfully leaving the club or just somehow finding a suitor for him in some far-flung corner of the footballing globe, the Red Devils cannot hold onto him after this season. Sanchez’s overpaid salary is already causing others to want hiked wages and destabilizing United’s financial structure.
He’s not being able to make any impact, form any chemistry with his attacking compatriots or show any signs of his old self. The Chilean’s slowly turning into a liability and just loaning him out won’t end United’s nightmare with the whole Sanchez fiasco.
Woodward needs to launch a charm offensive to stop a potentially messy saga.
