Alexis Sanchez is refusing to leave Manchester United this summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Sun is claiming that the Chile international has been stalling on a loan move to Italian side AS Roma this summer after having fallen out of favour under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

According to the same story, Sanchez is “dragging his heels” about a move away from Old Trafford this summer despite the intense speculation about his future.

Sanchez has struggled to perform for the Red Devils since signing for Manchester United from Arsenal in the January transfer window in 2018.

The same article states that Sanchez could end up being “banished” from the first-team squad should he stay at Old Trafford beyond the close of the European transfer window on 2 September.

Sanchez has scored just three times in 32 Premier League appearances for the Red Devils since his switch from Arsenal and has struggled for both form and fitness.

The Chile international is currently sidelined with a hamstring injury, according to the same report. It is also claimed in the same story that the former FC Barcelona man is on wages of £505,000 a week.

Meanwhile, Manchester United are preparing for a trip to Wolves in the Premier League on Monday night.
