Manchester United forward Alexis Sanchez has reportedly handed the club a quit ultimatum ahead of the January transfer window.

According to the London Evening Standard via the Daily Express, the Chilean international player has told the Red Devils to give him more playing time on the pitch or let him leave when the transfer window reopens in the New Year.

Alexis Sanchez has endured a frustrating spell at Old Trafford since he joined the club from top four rivals Arsenal in the penultimate transfer window in January.

The former Udinese and Barcelona star signed for Manchester United in a swap deal which saw Armenian international playmaker Henrikh Mkhitaryan move in the other direction.

He signed a Manchester United contract until the end of the 2021/22 season with a reported weekly wage of £500,000.

Since signing for the Champions League campaigners, Alexis Sanchez has scored four goals only in over 30 appearances in all competitions.

Sanchez has scored just once in the new campaign and has only started five league games.

His lack of game time has led to talks about his long-term future at Old Trafford.

Various media reports had earlier claimed that he ordered his agent, Fernando Felicevich, to get him a move away from the club.
