Alexis Sanchez wants to leave Manchester as soon as possible.

The Daily Mail believes, that the Chilean international has had enough of life at United.

So much so, he is willing to listen to all offers just to escape the dream transfer that has become a nightmare.

Sanchez made the move to United 18 months ago as part of a swap deal involving Henrikh Mkhitaryan going the opposite way to Arsenal.

While neither club or either player will be overjoyed with the way the deal has panned out. Sanchez seems to have been at the rough end of the stick.

Not only has he struggled for form, but he has also suffered a run of various minor injuries that have stopped him establishing any kind of consistency too.

If that wasn’t bad enough, he has been the brunt of many an untoward comment in regards to his huge paycheck.

He is rumoured to be on a basic salary of 390,000 pounds a week, rising to 505,000 with bonuses.

While publicly Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has given him the vote of confidence. That he can contribute and what they expect many goals out of him this year.

However, Solskjaer has also said he is several weeks behind everyone else, after the Copa America and another injury.

It is widely thought that if the right offer came in he would be allowed to leave. That offer may even be a loan agreement, where United even pay a sizeable portion of his wages.

The other major European leagues, have until September 2nd to conclude their transfer business.

His agent Fernando Felicevich has apparently met with several potential suitors.

This list includes Juventus, Inter Milan, and Roma.

He has Serie A experience, having played for Udinese earlier in his career.

Sanchez has only managed 3 goals in his time at United.
