Manchester United Reject Offer To Take Alexis Sánchez On Loan

A loan bid for Alexis Sánchez has been rejected by Manchester United with the 30-year-old looking likely to have a third-season in Manchester.

The forward, who signed for United in January 2018 in a swap deal with Henrikh Mkhitaryan, has not shown his worth as of yet, scoring just five goals.

A report by SportWitness states that Brazilian reporter Jorge Nicola has revealed an offer was made by Palmeiras to bring Sánchez to South America on a season-long loan. The São Paulo-based club wanted to share the Chilean’s wages, with United paying the majority. However, they soon moved on once the Red Devils rejected the offer, seemingly wanting Sánchez off the wage bill.

Despite looking like the most likely to leave the club, word on Sánchez’s future has been extremely quiet, though he is currently on international duty with Chile, aiding them in their attempts to win the Copa América for the third time.

United’s number seven scored in Chile’s opening game at the tournament, later telling reporters of the struggle of last season in England, saying: “For six weeks, I felt worse than I ever have before.”

It was Sánchez’s first goal in five months, a horrid stat for a player in such incredible form whilst at Arsenal. With good friend Romelu Lukaku looking set to depart, it could be a blessing in disguise for Sánchez, who has rarely had a chance to play as a centre-forward due to the position being occupied by the Belgian or Marcus Rashford. Only time will tell if he can turn his fortunes around in Manchester, should he be given the chance to.
