Manchester United chiefs are regretting the clubs decision to sign Alexis Sanchez, reports say.
The Red Devils shattered their wage structure in order to sign the Chilean in January. However, Sanchez has failed to hit the high standards he set during his time at the Emirates.
The ace forward departed Arsenal in unfriendly circumstances after running down his contract to within just a few months of expiry in order to force a move to Old Trafford.
He signed a four-year deal with United on a lucrative contract. However, the forward has scored just once in the league since his straight swap for Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
And now Spanish publication El Pais claim that United executives expressed ‘regret’ over the signing of Sanchez during a dinner party in London.
His failure to deliver on the pitch has brought more attention to United’s outlay on him. This includes a huge signing on fee, the loss of Henrikh Mkhitaryan and further stress on the wage structure which is rumoured to have caused friction in the dressing room.
