Manchester United are planning a summer shake up with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer incharge.
Solskjaer has been confirmed as the new boss for Manchester United after fans and former players both backing him for the job. Now, squad shake up is expected at Old Trafford with some players expected to be sold.
Among the players expected to be sold Sanchez’s name come on top of that list. Sanchez has been unable to turn his form around and does not feature in Solskjaer’s plans anymore.
What’s the story?
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is expected to start his Manchester United revolution this summer. New signings are expected to strengthen the squad but some players are also expected to be sold in the summer.
According to Guardian at least five team players are expected to be sold this summer. Alexis Sanchez apparently tops that list after never findind his form at Old Trafford. Other players who are expected to leave are Antonio valencia, Ander Herrera, Juan Mata, Matteo Darmian and Marcos Rojo.
Heart of the Matter
Alexis Sanchez never found his feet at Manchester United despite having a good Premier League experience. Chilean is regarded as one of the worst signings in the history of Manchester United. Former Barcelona man arrived from Arsenal in the January of 2018 after a transfer tussle between Manchester City and Manchester United.
Although over a year has passed, Sanchez still remains lost at Old Trafford. His disappointing displays for the club along with his salary of over €400,000 makes him a loss waiting to be cut short. Sanchez still has three years remaining on his contract.
It will be hard for Manchester United to find a suitor for Alexis Sanchez. Sanchez’s high wages will surely prove to be a stumbling block if not his poor recent form.
Red Devils will be up against Barcelona next in the Champions League quarter-finals first leg at Old Trafford on Wednesday.
