Manchester United fans have taken to Twitter to react after it was announced that Alexis Sanchez would be out for up to six weeks through injury.
The Chilean has gone down as one of the worst transfers in the club’s history since arriving from Arsenal in a swap deal with Henrikh Mkhitaryan back in January. He has scored just four goals and looks an absolute shadow of the player who was amongst the world’s best at Barcelona and then Arsenal.
Interestingly, many fans are sceptical of his new ‘injury’, as they feel that it is merely a case of the player keeping himself fresh for a January move away from the club, as he plots his exit away from a nightmarish stint at Old Trafford.
The 29-year-old will most likely be out until the new year, according to Jose Mourinho at least.
In light of the news, fans of the Red Devils have taken to Twitter to voice their opinions on the Chile international’s injury…
Saving himself for PSG in January

I’d say this is to make sure he’s OK for the transfer window. Can’t have him getting splinters on the bench. They might get infected!

Respectable way of saying he’s being dropped to keep him fresh for the transfer window..

Alexis is finito. It’s time to sell him in January and bring in Memphis now.

When he’s transferred to PSG, his hamstring will magically heal.
