Alexis Sanchez to PSG: The Chilean forward is reportedly unhappy at United and the agent has started looking for potential buyers, with PSG being favorites.
In the past few weeks, Manchester United have pulled up some spirited displays, and registered an emphatic comeback victory at Turin against Juventus earlier this week.
The season’s first Manchester derby will be played at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday night. While the blue half enjoys at the top of the table, the red half has had a fair share of ups and downs this season.
However, Mourinho’s side have been reasonably good in their last few games in the league, and Manchester United were the last team to beat City at Etihad Stadium in the league.
Manchester United came from two goals down at halftime to beat Guardiola’s men 3-2. The stakes will be high for both the sides as they take on one another this time, as United have the opportunity to close the gap with their city rivals.
Talking about rivals, one player who was linked heavily with City, but chose United in January was Chile’s Alexis Sanchez. The life has been rather harsh for him ever since he joined the club, and if reports are to be believed, Sanchez could leave the club.
Alexis Sanchez to PSG:
It is been reported by Paul Hirst for Times that Alexis Sanchez is feeling ‘lonely’ at the club.

Sanchez joined Manchester United in January earlier this year on a four-year deal. But the Chilean forward has struggled to adjust with life at the club.

It is reported that Sanchez’s agent, Fernando Felicevich, “has started looking at potential suitors for his client, and PSG have made it clear that they would be interested in him, although it remains to be seen whether United would sell.”
Since moving to Old Trafford, Sanchez has scored only 4 goals in 28 appearances.
He netted the crucial winner in the 3-2 victory over Newcastle United this season, but it remains to be the only goal Sancez has scored in the 2018/19 season so far.
Paul Hirst: Just like he was during his time at Arsenal, Sánchez is an aloof figure at Carrington. Although his team mates admire his work ethic, there is little by way of emotional connection between Sánchez and his colleagues. He has few friends.https://t.co/MOS6hZ7NOo

Sanchez has been relatively better for Manchester United as a sole forward, but is nowhere near his best.
How good was Alexis Sanchez last night? He gives us the direct approach, adds extra dimension in attack, great awareness of his teammates, remarkable movement & unbelievable control on the ball.

Alexis Sanchez was heavily linked with a move to PSG during the summer transfer window in 2017. However, the French giants opted for Kylian Mbappe.
