Wright: Nobody would pay for Sanchez right now

Arsenal legend Ian Wright doesn’t think any club would pay a fee for Manchester United forward Alexis Sanchez in his current form.

Red Devils supporters are still waiting to see the form that Sanchez captured during his time at Arsenal – where he scored 80 goals in 166 appearances for the club.

The Chilean is reportedly earning £391,000-a-week and Wright thinks United should potentially look to offload him at the end of the season.

“If I was a businessman, I’d see how it goes for the rest of the season then look to offload,” Wright said on 5 live’s Monday Night Club.

“It’s because of the wages he’s on.

“For me, right now, if United had paid money for him they’d be thinking: ‘How are we going to get that back?’

“Sanchez will have to take a hit on his weekly wage [if he joins another club]. Nobody will pay a fee for him, because of the way he’s playing.

“He does not warrant a place in the team when you have Martial and Marcus Rashford waiting to play.

“You look at him at United: he’s not shackled, he’s got freedom. His form will have to kick in to justify a place.”
