Man Utd Chairman Ed Woodward has admitted that he made a mistake in signing Alexis Sanchez for the Red Devils, according to the latest reports.
Alexis Sanchez currently earns a salary of £400,000 a week, which includes a £75,000 every time he makes an appearance for the club.
And now, according to reports, Woodward has admitted to the Man Utd board that it was a mistake to sign the Chilean on that kind of money.
Even Man United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has hinted in his interview that Sanchez will have to carry his weight around the team or his time will be up pretty soon:
‘As a club we cannot carry players. Everyone has to take ownership, keep improving, show that hunger that you want to get better individually and as a team.
‘I’m not just talking about Alexis individually. Everyone is under the same demands. ‘But to go to Alexis, he’s not been lucky with injuries.
‘Since I came in, he’s had two long-term injuries and that hasn’t been beneficial to him, and some other players have had injuries as well.
‘But I see the characters we have. I am looking at who we should keep, who we should move on.
‘Alexis has got a fantastic talent when he’s playing at his best level, of course we want him performing for us.’
It’s safe to say that Sanchez’s time at Man United has been a failure and that doesn’t look like changing in the near future.
