Manchester United could discard this player for Sancho.

When he arrived, Manchester United supporters were in a frenzy. He was heralded as the second coming. The man who would finally help the Red Devils ascend back to the pinnacle of the Premier League and secure the long coveted trophy which has eluded them since Sir Alex Ferguson’s departure.

Most importantly Alexis Sanchez was meant to finally erase the lingering void left behind by Cristiano Ronaldo on the flanks. Having inherited the famous number seven shirt at Old Trafford and having teared Premier League defences apart whilst at Arsenal, the expectations were high for the Chilean at United.

The fans were excited to have a player of his ilk and talent. They had beaten Pep Guardiola to his services and the anticipation was tremendous as Sanchez prepared to make his debut.

Alexis Sanchez struggled to fit into the rigid Jose Mourinho system at Old Trafford and was a shadow of his former self.

But it seems, Alexis Sanchez could still somewhat help the Red Devils.

Declared as the rightful heir to Cristiano Ronaldo’s number seven throne, Sancho has elicited the same excitement as Sanchez from the supporters.
