Why the Man United star was at the Camp Nou
There’s no need to start thinking Alexis is about to leave Old Trafford to rejoin Barcelona.
Sanchez is back in Spain with respect to his injury problems.
He is consulting with knee specialist Dr Ramon Cugat.
Sanchez is facing up to an eight-week spell on the sidelines due to a knee ligament injury.
He’ll miss Sunday’s match against former club Arsenal. Will he miss the rest of the season?
Over the weekend, the Man United star uploaded videos onto his Instagram account of his rehab.
