Paul Scholes believes that Alexis Sanchez has a lot of work to do to hit top gear at Manchester United.

The Chile international signed for Manchester United in the January transfer window from Arsenal as part of the same deal which saw Henrikh Mkhitaryan head in the other direction.

Sanchez has been a regular fixture in the first team since his move but he has struggled to produce consistent performances for Jose Mourinho’s men.

Indeed, the 29-year-old only managed to score three goals in all competitions for Manchester United following his move to Old Trafford.

Manchester United fans will be hoping to see Sanchez step up his performances next season as he looks to try and recreate the type of form which had made him such a key player for Arsenal.

And Scholes has admitted that he has been disappointed by what he has since from Sanchez since his move to the club.

Speaking to BT Sport, Scholes said: “We talk about big-game players and he’s definitely one of them.

“His United career hasn’t really got going yet. He’s not scored many goals and his performances haven’t been great.

“He’s been very careless in possession but you can’t underestimate the quality he does have.”

Manchester United are bound to be linked with a host of players in the coming weeks and months as they look to try and win the Premier League title next season.

Jose Mourinho is aiming to become the first manager to lead the Red Devils to the title since 2013.
