Alexis Sanchez has revealed that he wanted to leave Manchester United and return to Arsenal after his first very training session at Carrington.
Sanchez moved from Arsenal to Manchester United on January 2018, with the Red Devils reportedly paying him around £560,000-a-week.
The Chilean, however, struggled to produce the great skills, goals and performances his was known for.
In 2019, he moved to Inter Milan on loan, before securing a permanent move to the Serie A club in August 2020.
Sanchez played 45 games for United, scoring just five goals, and providing 9 assists.
Reflecting on his time in Manchester via a video posted on his Instagram, the 31-year-old indicated that he knew he’d made the wrong choice signing for Manchester United and he was never going to enjoy his time at the club. He also hit out at the squad’s lack of unity during his time there.
This revelation by Sanchez has generated a lot of responses from football fans and pundits.
While some have lashed out at him for his claims, others have indicated that he was right to speak on why he could not perform well during his time at Manchester United.
Some people also used the opportunity to make hilarious tweets in relation to the issue.
