Why United Fans Label Alexis Sanchez As Top Three Worst Signing In Club’s History

Chilean forward Alexis Sanchez won’t have envisaged how the last one year has panned out for him following his largely unimpressive start to life as a Manchester United player.

The former Udinese and Barcelona star became a Red Devil during the January transfer window in a swap deal involving Manchester United and Arsenal.

The aforementioned deal saw Alexis Sanchez and Armenian playmaker Henrikh Mkhitaryan swap clubs and the electric forward was offered a lucrative contract reportedly worth around £500,000 at Old Trafford.

He has however failed to live up to his hefty wages with a series of bad outings in the colours of Manchester United.

While he was at Arsenal, he won two FA Cup titles and two COPA America titles with Chile in addition to his phenomenal goals record for both club and country but Sanchez has been a shadow of himself at the Theatre of Dreams.

He has netted just three times in 23 appearances for the club and his form led to him being dropped by manager Jose Mourinho for Saturday’s game against West Ham United despite travelling to London with the squad.

His removal from the West Ham squad led fans to call him one of the top three worst signings in Manchester United history.

In his absence, the Red Devils suffered their third league reverse of the season with a 3-1 defeat to Manuel Pellegrini’s Hammers.
