Alexis Sanchez

Chilean international Sanchez of course made the move to Old Trafford in January of last year, on the back of a scintillating stint with Premier League rivals Arsenal.

To say that the 30-year-old’s time in Manchester subsequently proved disappointing, though, would be an understatement.

Sanchez, simply put, failed to deliver in any way, shape or form in a Red Devils jersey.

All told, last season saw the experienced South American notch a paltry 2 goals across all competitions.

In addition, amid a visible dip in confidence, and persistent fitness problems, Sanchez managed just 9 Premier League starts.

Inter switch

As such, it came as little surprise when the former Barcelona man’s Old Trafford departure was made official late last month.

Sanchez joined Antonio Conte’s Inter Milan on loan for the remainder of the 2019/20 campaign, reuniting with Romelu Lukaku at the San Siro:

United stars pleased

And, as per the aforementioned report from the Sun, Sanchez’s exit appears to have been met with widespread approvement at Old Trafford.

It is claimed that the rest of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad felt as though the Chilean was completely undeserving of his massive wages, amid potential unrest in the Red Devils’ camp.

As such, the club’s stars were ‘glad to see the back’ of Sanchez, with it unclear how the 30-year-old would be received, if he returns next summer:
