Manchester United, who were desperate to get rid of Alexis Sanchez last summer, reportedly are planning to bring back the striker to Old Trafford.

Sanchez, with only five goals in 45 appearances, had turned out to be a disastrous signing for Man Utd, who had picked the Chilean for $500,000-per-week. When Sanchez was sent to Inter Milan on loan ahead of the current 2019-20 season, Man Utd boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was not even interested in looking for his replacement.

The former Premier League champions were happy to still pay the majority of his wages. They were that desperate to completely disconnect with Sanchez.

Meanwhile, Sanchez has not had a great run in Italy, courtesy of a dislocated ankle that has restricted him to just a few appearances.

According to a report in Daily Star, Man Utd have taken a U-turn in their decision as they now want Sanchez back in their dugout. Man Utd are reportedly willing to give Sanchez a second chance to prove his worth at Old Trafford.

Man Utd’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward reportedly “has told Sanchez and his agents he will not be allowed to make his loan move to Inter permanent - or join another club.”

Considering Marcus Rashford is out for months, Solskajer hardly has any choice but to be dependent on the likes of Daniel James, Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood for the likely future. Their current injury scenario and their poor run in the Premier League is explanatory to why they suddenly want Sanchez back.
