Alexis Sanchez will only play in the Europa League and Carabao Cup if he stays at Man Utd

Everton FC v Manchester United - Premier League

Alexis Sanchez’s 19 months at Manchester United have been pretty disastrous.

There was so much excitement when the Red Devils beat Manchester City to the signing of the former Arsenal star last January.

But just four league goals later and it seems Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is desperate to get rid of the Chilean.

Sanchez has been heavily linked with a loan move to Inter Milan before the end of the European transfer window.

At one time, it seemed just a matter of time before Sanchez’s nightmare at the Theatre of Dreams would come to an end.

However, with days remaining of the window, it seems Inter are stalling.

The Italian club are, understandably, refusing to pay much of Sanchez’s £391,000-per-week wages.

United, understandably, don’t want to pay the majority of the wages for a player that won’t be at the club.

And Sanchez, understandably, is unwilling to take a payout with three years left on his current deal.

It means there’s a real possibility that Sanchez will remain on United’s books for the foreseeable future.

But if he does, he will only play Europa League and Carabao Cup games report The Times.

Imagine paying a player almost £400,000-per-week and only playing him in minor cup matches.

Of course, that decision may have something to do with the fact Sanchez is reportedly a £75,000-per-week appearance fee on top of his eye-watering wages.

With Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, Daniel James and even 17-year-old Marcus Rashford now above him in the pecking order, Sanchez could be in for a very long season.
