Going by the latest Premier League transfer rumors, Manchester United are all set to offload their out-of-form striker Alexis Sanchez. Moreover, they are even ready to pay €13m so that his weekly wages don’t pile up on the heavy bill anymore.
The Red Devils paid a hefty €26 million to Arsenal in a swap deal in the winter transfer window of 2018 which saw Henrikh Mkhitaryan donning the Gunners’ jersey. However, Sanchez has been out-of-form since the onset of the 2018-19 season, having played only 1186 minutes so far this season.
Sanchez costs United roughly €250,000 per week and his bonus aggravates the situation further. The money saved by moving out Sanchez can be used to make a new signing in the summer.
As far as Sanchez’s destination is concerned, Manchester United are wary of selling him to any other Premier League Club but they would gladly accept an offer from Europe. The club is also contemplating the thought of loaning him out.
If Alexis Sanchez is loaned out to some other club, Manchester United can call him back once he finds his form again.
