Man United admit they ‘regret’ signing Sanchez

Manchester United executives have admitted to other Premier League clubs that they regret the January signing of Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal.

According to reports in The Mirror  the Old Trafford club are said to be questioning their decision to pay a huge signing on fee, massive agent fees, and lose Henrikh Mkhitaryan to sign the Chile international, when they could have got him for a lot cheaper during the summer.

There is also the issue of Sanchez’s rumoured £500,000 a week salary causing unrest within the Man United dressing room, with players like Paul Pogba now said to be seeking a similar wage.

Another cause for concern is that the player is 29-years-old, meaning he will start to decline in a couple of seasons and will then have little or no sell on value.

Sanchez has struggled to reach top form so far during his United career, finding the net just once in seven appearances.

However, he has proved himself to a world class attacker over the course of his career, so he will more than likely start to perform to a much higher level over the course of his Old Trafford career.
