Former Manchester United ace Andrei Kanchelskis believes Alexis Sanchez’s career at the club could take the same trend as that of Fernando Torres at Chelsea unless he pursues a fresh challenge elsewhere. The Chile international joined the Red Devils from Arsenal in a straight-swap deal involving Henrikh Mkhitaryan in January 2018, but he has since struggled for form with just five goals scored across all competitions.
Sanchez has barely featured from the starting lineup under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this year and he is currently on the sidelines after picking up a knee problem during the Premier League game against Southampton last month. The Chilean has been backed to make a comeback during the final fortnight of the campaign but it remains to be seen whether Ole would consider the attacker for the final phase of the season without much practice.
Manchester United are currently sixth on the league standings, but they are within two points off the top four positions. The Red Devils most recently suffered a 2-1 defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers on the road. The loss was their third from the previous four matches across all competitions.
