Alexis Sanchez’s United problems just get worse, now he has a training ground bust-up with a teammate.
According to reports from The Sun newspaper,
The incident took place, in a training session. An apparent foul from 17-year old Mason Greenwood left Sanchez livid.
The Chilean international is desperate to return to full fitness. And stake a claim for a place in the United team.
Sanchez had an amazing start to his summer Copa America campaign with the Chile National team.
Getting on the score sheet, and showing the flair, flamboyance, and goal-scoring abilities that persuaded United to give him a contract that cost them up to 505,000 pounds a week.
His tournament ended in disappointment. He ended up injured and ending the tournament in the physio’s room. A place at Old Trafford that he has become used to visiting.
Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has already said, he hopes for Sanchez to rediscover his goal-scoring touch. But he has also stated that he is several weeks behind everyone else in terms of fitness.
While there has been no public admission from United. The general consensus is, that it may be better if Anchez moves on.
The problem is, there are no takers right now.
The only possibility maybe a loan deal. Roma has expressed an interest in these kinds of terms.
Then comes the issue of his wages. The Old Trafford club may still end up footing a large portion of his mega pay packet.
Whatever happens, as things stand right now, Sanchez is well down the pecking order at United. Young Greenwood is even ahead of him.
The youngster managed to make it on the field during Sunday’s annihilation of Chelsea.
Solskjaer encourages intense practice sessions. However, Greenwood apparently caught Sanchez with a late challenge.
The foul enraged the Chilean.
It is understood, that 30-year-old Sanchez had some harsh words for the youngster.
Things appear to be going from bad to worse for Alexis Sanchez in Manchester.
