Alexis Sanchez is injured again

As confirmed by the BBC, Man United forward Alexis Sanchez is injured again.

Sanchez was in action on Saturday at the Copa America.

Playing against Argentina in the third-placed playoff, Chile lost 2-1.

During the competition, Alexis, who only scored twice for United last season, rediscovered his scoring touch.

However, Sanchez’s Copa America has finished on a low note after he limped out of the Argentina game.

How bad is Alexis Sanchez’s injury?

Of course, Alexis Sanchez had injury problems at Man United last season, which kept him on the sidelines.

Sadly for the South American, the BBC now report that he may miss Man United’s entire pre-season:

(Alexis Sanchez) pulled up chasing a long ball in the third-place play-off against Argentina, hobbling off after 17 minutes.

The 30-year-old, who has endured a difficult time at Old Trafford since joining from Arsenal in January 2018, is not expected to feature on the club’s pre-season tour.

If Sanchez misses Man United’s pre-season, how likely is it that the Chilean will be involved at the start of Man United’s 2019-20 season?

Argentina 2 – Chile 1

Goals from Sergio Aguero and Paulo Dybala put Argentina 2-up.

Arturo Vidal scored a second-half penalty for Chile.

Leo Messi and Gary Medel were sent off in the match.

Man United head to Australia today

Man United begin their pre-season on Sunday as they head to Australia.

Will Paul Pogba be on the plane headed down under?

Pogba is expected to join up with his United team-mates, despite rumours that the French World Cup winner may leave Old Trafford this summer.

Both Juventus and Real Madrid are thought to be considering moves to sign Pogba this summer.
