It would be fair to say that it has not quite happened for Alexis Sanchez since the Chilean joined Manchester United in the January transfer window.
Sanchez switched to United from Arsenal in a deal that saw Henrikh Mkhitaryan move in the opposite direction.
The former Barcelona attacker has been a constant for the Red Devils since his move to the club, but he has only managed one goal in nine appearances since arriving at Old Trafford.
The 29-year-old, who is valued at £63m by transfermarkt.co.uk, has been accused of trying too hard in the early stages of his United career, but it seems that the attacker will has the full support of the club’s fans.
Indeed, in response to quotes from Michael Carrick on the Chilean, the United supporters insisted that Sanchez would come good once he has fully settled into life with the 20-time English champions.

He’ll come good. Give him a few more months to settle down and the talent which is already clearly evident will turn into effectiveness

Alexis has always been the same, he is tireless, and all the clubs say the same and that is what motivates the team at times, his passion for football every time he is on the court.
