Manchester United ‘fear’ that Alexis Sanchez is ‘miserable’ at the club, and is in danger of following the same path as Angel di Maria.
Sanchez joined United from Arsenal in January, but has scored just one goal in his first ten games. Maybe because they actually signed his twin?
The Chilean was benched in the FA Cup victory over Brighton at the weekend, and United are ‘concerned’ both with his form and his ‘demeanour’.
Chris Wheeler of the Daily Mail claims that Sanchez is ‘miserable’, ‘unhappy’ and ‘isolated’ at Old Trafford, and ‘often eats alone in the canteen’.
He adds that ‘some say’ Sanchez is having ‘second thoughts’ about joining United, and his current situation is similar to that of Di Maria.
The winger spent just one season at United after joining in summer 2014, leaving within a year after failing to settle at the club.
“He looks like someone who doesn’t want to be here,” Wheeler quotes a source as saying.
“The whole thing doesn’t seem right and he looks like a lost boy. It was the same with Di Maria.”
