Believe it or not, Manchester United fans are already openly regretting signing Alexis Sanchez

"Can we bring Mkhitaryan back, the deal was a terrible mistake."


“We didn’t need Sanchez at all. We just panicked ourselves into buying him because City were interested.”

Some Manchester United supporters on social media are voicing their regret about the club’s decision to sign Alexis Sanchez. The Chilean joined United from Arsenal in January, as part of a swap deal which saw Henrikh Mkhitaryan move to the Emirates. United fans were very excited when Sanchez arrived, and rightly so.

The former Barcelona forward is a world-class player at the peak of his powers, and he appeared to be an ideal fit for his new club. But so far it hasn’t gone to plan. Sanchez has scored once in six games and he failed to make an impact away to Sevilla in the goalless draw on Wednesday night.

This could be down to Jose Mourinho’s limited tactics, as Sanchez is just the latest creative attacking player to underwhelm under the United manager. But it seems some fans of the club have already had enough of him.
