Alexis Alejandro Sanchez famed as Alexis Sanchez is a professional footballer who plays as a forward for English club Manchester United and the Chile national team. He began his career as a youth player for Cobreloa at age 17. After three seasons in Italy, he moved to Barcelona in a transfer worth €30 million (£25 million), becoming the most expensive Chilean player of all time. Later, he transferred to Arsenal in a deal worth £31.7 million (€35.8 million) a year later. He is a very talented football player. 

Sanchez running out of time to prove himself at Man Utd following failed Leicester audition

City was heavily linked with Sanchez before his switch from Arsenal to Manchester United, where the Chilean only scored three in 25 league games and twice in all competitions this season. The Chilean has struggled to justify his huge salary since joining from Arsenal last year and not even Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been able to lift him. It is becoming an increasingly familiar scene to witness. Sanchez with a frown rather than a big infectious smile has simply become the way of things since he swapped Arsenal for United in January 2018, and there was nothing to come out of Sunday’s 1-0 win at Leicester which suggested the catalyst for change is any closer to being found. He did score in his return to the Emirates Stadium as United swept Arsenal aside in the FA Cup, but even that night he was an anonymous figure for long stretches. And while he had missed a lengthy spell through a hamstring injury leading up to that game, his manager believes even that was something he could have managed better himself by not playing on for the beginning of the second half in the cup against Reading after feeling a tug in the same muscle.
