One of the biggest transfer busts in recent memory, Alexis Sanchez’s time at Manchester United has been nothing short of a disaster.
The forward has struggled immensely with form and fitness since arriving at Old Trafford in the January transfer window in 2018, and reports had even suggested the club could be looking to move him on this summer.
The 30-year-old was on international duty with Chile at the Copa America and appeared to pick up a hamstring injury during his country’s third/fourth play-off against Argentina.
However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has now confirmed that he hopes Sanchez will be back soon and expects him to feature before the end of pre-season; something that didn’t seem to go down too well with United fans on Twitter.

Red Devils supporters urged the club to get rid of the Chilean as soon as possible and felt frustrated that he would still be on the club’s books this summer.
Indeed, some insisted that it was time the club cut their losses on Sanchez and suggested that the club’s injury update on Sanchez was a way of hinting that he would be remaining at the club.
Check out some of the angry reaction of United fans below:
Hopefully he never plays another minute for us again.

I take it he’s still going to be here this season, so much for a clear out

If you’re saying he’s going to turn it around you’re genuinely deluded. His United career is over. I wish it never started and I can’t believe I’m saying that. There was so much hype that turned to disappointment. Cut your losses and sell him.
