Man Utd transfer stance on Alexis Sanchez emerges as Ander Herrera insiders open up


Manchester United duo Sanchez and Ander Herrera have both been tipped to leave the club when the transfer window reopens at the end of the season.

Sanchez has endured a nightmare first full season at Old Trafford, scoring just two goals – against Newcastle and Arsenal respectively.

Herrera, though, remains a key part of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United side but may leave on a free transfer.

United have tried to tie the Spain international down to a new contract but, so far, are yet to make a breakthrough.

PSG are supposedly interested in acquiring the services of the former Athletic Bilbao star.

Yet sources close to the player have told the Manchester Evening News that they are not responsible for the PSG transfer rumours.

Last month, talk arose that Herrera had already agreed to leave United for the Ligue 1 giants this summer.

But the player’s entourage have now disputed that and insisted the planting of stories in the press is a ‘game they will never play.’

Regarding Sanchez, meanwhile, and the MEN claim that United are already looking to offload the Chile international.

But the Red Devils do not believe their No 7 is the reason for contract issues with a number of stars.

Herrera feels that, given Sanchez’s wages of around £400,000-a-week, he deserves a pay rise.

The United star has been a loyal servant over the years, starring in FA Cup, Europa League and EFL Cup triumphs.

David De Gea is a second United player also demanding an increase on his current salary.

But Herrera, it seems, looks likelier to become a free agent at the end of the campaign instead.

Meanwhile, Solskjaer has revealed Sanchez is training with the team again. The United star has missed the last six matches through injury.

The Norwegian said: “He is training with us. He’s trained twice and will train today.

“I’m not sure if he’s going to be available [for West Ham].

“He’s injury free, I’m not sure he’s 100% ready, more likely, maybe, the Barcelona game, so let’s see.”
