According to a recent report by the Sun, Paris Saint-Germain are hoping to secure the services of Manchester United forward Alexis Sanchez next summer. It is believed that the French giants are willing to provide the Chilean international with an escape route out of Old Trafford as long as they can sign him on the cheap or even on a possible free transfer.
Sanchez’s Old Trafford Misery
The 29-year-old has struggled to find form since making a switch from Arsenal for free at the start of this calendar year. To make things worse, Sanchez is currently earning a whopping £505,000-a-week which makes him the highest paid player for the Red Devils. However, he has not been able to produce the goods on the pitch under Jose Mourinho’s tutelage which is why his potential departure might be United’s best option going forward.
The Tocopilla born prospect has made eight appearances for the Mancunian outfit this season, scoring one goal while creating one assist in all competitions. He has often struggled to make an impact in the final third, which is why the United boss has dropped him in recent weeks.
What Does Sanchez Add To Mourinho’s Team?
However, there is no doubt that Sanchez is a very talented winger who has a knack for scoring and creating goals from wide positions. His time at Old Trafford has not been fruitful especially because of Mourinho’s failure to get the best out of him.
Sanchez is speedy and could be considered one of the best dribblers in the Premier League. He is also an accomplished finisher and knows how to deliver a telling ball in the opposition box. Even though he had to endure a tough spell at Manchester, Sanchez still has enough quality in his locker to be an asset for a big club like PSG.
Should Man United Sell Him?
The Reds of Manchester will do well to get Sanchez off their wage bill while the Ligue 1 giants will be acquiring a proven player who might be a star for them over the next few years. Mourinho could also use the money generated from his potential sale to strengthen other areas of his squad. Hence, the departure of Sanchez could be a win-win deal for all parties.
