Manchester United chiefs are worried that Alexis Sanchez could end up flopping like Angel Di Maria at Old Trafford, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Mail is reporting that the Old Trafford club’s hierarchy have already begun to express their concern at Sanchez’s poor form at the club since his move from Arsenal in January.

The 29-year-old has struggled to produce consistent performances for the Red Devils since his move to the club and he was dropped to the bench for Manchester United’s FA Cup win over Brighton last weekend.

According to the same story, Sanchez is the highest paid player in the Premier League and earns around £600,000 a week at the Red Devils.

The same article says that according to some people, Sanchez has come across as a player who has had second thoughts about his transfer to Manchester United at the turn of the year.

The story quotes an unnamed source as saying: “He looks like someone who doesn’t want to be here.

“The whole thing doesn’t seem right and he looks like a lost boy. It was the same with Di Maria.”

Sanchez has managed only one goal in 10 games for Manchester United since his move from Arsenal back in January.

Meanwhile, Manchester United will return to Premier League action after the international break when they take on Swansea at Old Trafford on 31 March.
