Members of Manchester United’s board reportedly regret signing Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal in January. The North-West outfit caused a shock in the winter window when they swept under Manchester City’s nose to steal the Chile international.
Sanchez was widely expected to join Pep Guardiola’s side, but in the end he moved to Old Trafford in a swap deal involving Henrikh Mkhitaryan. Since moving to United, the 29-year-old has not yet made a huge impression on the team having scored just once in seven appearances in all competitions. According to El Pais, some members of United’s board have told Premier League executives that they regret signing Sanchez for three reasons. The hierarchy reportedly feel that the player would have been much cheaper had they secured his signature in the summer when his contract at Arsenal expired.
