Manchester United’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward is prepared to pay part of Alexis Sanchez’s astronomical wages just to get rid of him.

The Chilean has undoubtedly been one of the worst signings of the Red Devils in the recent years. With a weekly wage that rises up to £500,000 per week, Sanchez has spent most of his time in the medical room or on the bench instead of helping (who are we kidding!) the team on the pitch.
Having spent a year and a half at United, the 30-year-old has managed to start just 21 Premier League games for us while making a further 11 appearances from the bench with just 3 league goals to his name.
With Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Ed Woodward focusing on a summer rebuild, a lot of the players are set to depart the Old Trafford in the next few weeks as the fans expect some new signings after wrapping up Daniel James.
Of course, Alexis Sanchez is one of those players who doesn’t have a place in the squad, but getting rid of a player with half a million pound of wages is almost impossible, especially when he’s 30 years old and can’t score for his life!
So, what do we do?
Well, it reportedly seems like the Manchester United board is prepared to pay a part of Alexis Sanchez’s wages and will try to offload him to a club (dumb club with dumb scouts?) in need of a forward.
With a transfer budget of just £100 million, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would like to get rid of as many dead woods as he can in the next few weeks and Sanchez is definitely one of them.
While he’s on it, hopefully, Woodward could complete the signing of Aaron Wan-Bissaka and a world class Central Midfielder as well, although, I won’t be holding my breath on it!
