Alexis Sanchez arrived at Manchester United’s Carrington training facility with just days left until the European transfer window shuts.
The Chilean had been largely expected to move from Old Trafford this summer, with Inter Milan believed to be the proposed buyers.
Sanchez is yet to feature under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this season, after recovering from an injury sustained in the Copa America this summer.

But according to the Guardian, Sanchez’s proposed loan move to Antonio Conte’s side could be in doubt after Anthony Martial picked up a thigh injury in Saturday’s home defeat to Crystal Palace.
United are currently waiting on the results of the Frenchman’s scan, and if the extent of injury is worse than first feared, then Sanchez may have to be kept as a back up attacking option.
While we would much rather see the likes of Greenwood given a chance in the role, Solskjaer is still light on attacking options and Sanchez may prove useful when the Norwegian rotates his squad as the Europa League group stages start next month.
