It’s another international break and thus, kind of a slow time when it comes to big headlines, but there’s still a whole lot of important Manchester United news items out there. Here are links to some of the more relevant United news stories currently circulating on the internet.

-Alexis Sanchez has been a huge disappointment since he moved over from Arsenal in what was one of the most hyped up January transfer window deals ever. That’s obviously not news, but what he’s said about it certainly is.

Sanchez, who has scored just one goal in 10 appearances for United, said he considered dropping out of Chile’s international friendlies against Sweden and Denmark this break period. He spoke in Sweden today about his recent drop in form (transcript Daily Mail):

“As I am self-demanding, I expected something better. After my arrival at United, it was hard to change everything very quickly. I even hesitated to come here [to Sweden, with the national team].

“I had asked permission to miss these games, but then I thought better and spoke with Claudio [Bravo] and told him that we should all be united. The change of club was something that was very abrupt – it was the first time I’ve changed clubs in January – but many things have happened in my life that are difficult.”

Overall, Sanchez says he just expected better from this move.

-Sanchez also revealed that he has a coffee buddy on his new team in fellow forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

“I trained for a month and a half with Zlatan and his quality is impressive. We talk and we have a coffee together every day,” Sanchez said.

Just in case you wondered what these get togethers over coffee might be like….the Daily Mirror has got you covered, as they did a fun piece that imagined the conversation.

-Left back Luke Shaw has certainly had an up and down career at United. There seems to be a lot of talk indicating he’s on his way out this summer. If so, the destination could be Everton or Newcastle United, both of which seem to be interested in possibly providing a route to potentially restart his career.
