Manchester United Desperate To Offload Alexis Sanchez To Fund January Spending

Alexis Sanchez looks to be on borrowed time at Manchester United
Alexis Sanchez looks to be on borrowed time at Manchester United

Manchester United are ready to cut their losses on Alexis Sanchez and the player's agent has been desperately trying to find the Chilean a new club.      

In recent weeks, Real Madrid have been mentioned as possible suitors for the United misfit but now it appears that Inter Milan could be taking an interest. But PSG, who had also been linked with Sanchez, have decided not to pursue their interest.

The player's agent Fernando Felicevich has been told to find Sanchez a way out of Old Trafford and he has reached out to Real Madrid about a possible move at the earliest opportunity - meaning a potential January switch. Any income from the transfer could give Jose Mourinho an improved chance of bringing in three players.

Sanchez famously ended up at Old Trafford after being courted by Manchester City but Pep Guardiola refused to meet the Arsenal asking price. Not for the first time in his career, the City boss has proved a good judge.

These days, Sanchez is making more headlines for what he's up to off the field rather than on it, posting photos of his injured leg on Instagram. He's reportedly on more money than anyone else on the United roster and his time at the club looks to be up.

With just four goals in 30 appearances, the 29-year-old has struggled to fit into Mourinho's grand plan. We're also seeing why the Arsenal coaching staff didn't fight harder to keep him as one injury followed another. A report this weekend also suggested that Arsene Wenger "couldn't believe" that Mourinho wanted Sanchez.
