Paper Talk: Furious Man Utd star pushes for exit due to Mourinho

Date published: Thursday 29th November 2018 8:29

Alexis Sanchez is desperate to quit Manchester United after Jose Mourinho’s latest snub, while Bayern Munich are looking to pinch a Chelsea starlet, according to Thursday’s papers.



Alexis Sanchez’s relationship with Jose Mourinho is at breaking point after the Chilean did not even make the bench against Young Boys on Tuesday night.

The latest snub is reported to have strengthened the former Arsenal star’s determination to quit Old Trafford after less than a year, as he fears he has no future at Old Trafford under Mourinho.

Sanchez, who is on wages in excess of £500,000-a-week, has told pals he wants to quit Manchester and has set his heart on a move to star-studded French champions PSG, according to the Daily Mirror.

Mourinho went public with the fact that Sanchez was not injured for the game against the Swiss outfit, which United won 1-0 thanks to Marouane Fellaini’s late winner, and there is a belief it was done deliberately to make it clear the Chile international has been dropped.

Sanchez has scored just one goal in the Premier League this season, with his form and confidence taking a big hit as a result.
