According to the latest reports, Manchester United could sell their flop, Alexis Sanchez, to a surprising Premier League team.

He arrived at Manchester United as the saviour. The man to erase the memories of that lingering and haunting number seven at Old Trafford. The man who would finally stop the yearning for Cristiano Ronaldo‘s return.

Alexis Sanchez would be the saviour to herald a new dawn at United.

At the time, no one could dispute it.

Following an impressive spell with Barcelona, a solid World Cup and three and a half excellent years at Arsenal, Alexis Sanchez was regarded as an elite talent. The winger was considered to be one of the best in the Premier League.

His pace and dazzling feints made him the master of deceit. Alexis Sanchez could chop defenders with ease.

And when he cut inside and unleashed a shot on goal, the result would usually be with the ball nestling into the top corner.

But just like those who came before him, Alexis Sanchez ultimately faltered in his mission to erase the memories of Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Chilean would prove to be a flop at Old Trafford.

A hefty flop. His wages are purported to be extortionate and Alexis Sanchez is one of the highest earners at the club.

After a miserable loan spell at Inter Milan, marred by injuries and with Sanchez over thirty years of age, it is no surprise Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is reportedly keen on selling the winger in the summer.

While there have been rumours about a shock return to South America, it seems Alexis Sanchez could stay in the Premier League.

According to FC Inter News via Sport Witness, a shock club in West Ham has entered the race to sign the Chilean.

West Ham are hardly United’s rivals. Currently the London based club are relegation fodder. However, the Hammers do reportedly have the funds to sanction a move for Alexis Sanchez.

It could be the perfect solution for the Red Devils who will keen to offload their flop.

Perhaps they can even ask for a higher fee from West Ham than Sanchez’s other suitors.
