Alexis Sanchez returned to FC Barcelona

Manchester United forward Alexis Sanchez was spotted at the Camp Nou for the Barcelona vs Rayo game.

TV cameras showed an image of Sanchez sitting in the crowd.

The United attacker was sat alone wearing a baseball cap.

Of course, Sanchez previously played for Barcelona in his career.

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.
