Alexis Sanchez Apologizes to United Fans, Linked with Old Trafford Exit

Share

Alexis Sanchez is regarded by many to be the worst signing in Manchester United history. Not only has his Old Trafford career been injury riddled, he’s been very unproductive and displayed extremely poor form when healthy.

The bigger issue is probably his salary, which is reported to be £500,000 a week, and throws off the wage scale for the entire player roster. It also makes him near impossible to move this summer transfer window, although reports in Italy are suggesting that could happen.

The Guardian cites those Italian reports, writing that Juventus’ Sporting Director is open to the possibility.

The outlet also adds that his “agent is doing his bit to get the ball rolling, touting his client around assorted Italian clubs also rumored to include Inter, Roma and Milan.”

Still seems like a massive stretch, but I guess we’ll just have to see. Elsewhere in the world of Alexis Sanchez, he took to his Instagram today to post an apology to the club’s fans. 2018-19 was a massive disappointment for him, both on the individual and the team level. The club finished sixth in the table, out of the UCL, despite their massive payroll.

As for Sanchez himself, he only made 20 Premier League appearances this season, and scored just one goal.

”It was a very tough season…the fans are the ones who deserve an apology as they always support you no matter what happens,” he wrote on the social media platform.

“Personally, I didn’t perform as much as I was expecting because of unpredictable injuries. Press and people were speculating of things that were not even true. I was always a professional in all aspects.”

Fue una temporada muy complicada, pero ellos los fans, son los únicos que se merecen unas disculpas, te apoyan siempre a pesar de todo por este club. En lo personal, no jugué todo lo que esperaba, me lesioné de cosas que nunca me habían pasado. Hay cosas internas que la gente y periodistas hablan sin saber. Siempre fui profesional en todo sentido, ofrezco disculpas a los fans ?? por no estar peleando cosas importantes, siendo que somos el Manchester United. Jugadores y Staff saquemos conclusión, si hicimos lo correcto y entregamos lo mejor de cada uno por esta camiseta… Estoy seguro que el Manchester United, volverá a ser el club, que algún día fue, con el señor Alex Ferguson. ?? ??
