Struggling Manchester United star emerges on PSG’s radar for the winter

Alexis Sanchez scores for Manchester United

Alexis Sanchez

Paris Saint-Germain are interested in signing Alexis Sanchez, according to the Sun. The Chilean joined Manchester United in January but has failed to live up to the standards expected.

The 29-year-old has one goal from eight appearances for the Red Devils this season. The report adds that PSG wanted the player before he moved to United from Arsenal.

The Ligue 1 giants expect to lose either Neymar or Kylian Mbappe next season and are scouting their next big star, as per the report.

Jose Mourinho Alexis Sanchez

An Old Trafford source told the Sun:

“It’s no secret he has struggled and not lived up to the expectations. He isn’t getting any younger and it might never work for him.

“There was interest before the club signed him but he preferred staying in England at the time. That may have changed now.

“One of their top stars could go and it’s not beyond the realms of possibility that a deal could be struck between the two clubs.”

Sanchez last played for us in the 2-2 draw with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. The Chilean got just five minutes on the pitch and was a sub in the 3-2 win over Newcastle before the international break.
