Former Arsenal winger Marc Overmars believes that Manchester United forward Alexis Sanchez can reignite his form at his former club.
Arsenal legend Overmars spoke about Chilean international Alexis Sanchez, Arsenal and the player’s struggles at Manchester United in his latest interview with media outlet ADN Deportes.
The ex-Dutch international star talked about how the former Barcelona and Udinese player has performed below expectations at Manchester United before adding that Arsenal could put him out of his misery at Old Trafford.
Marc Overmars is the technical director at Dutch Eredivisie giants Ajax Amsterdam at the moment and he has been linked with a similar role at Arsenal though he might have to battle AS Roma director Monchi for that position.
Alexis Sanchez became the highest paid player in British football when he joined Manchester United at the start of last year in a swap deal involving Henrikh Mkhitaryan who’s now an Arsenal player.
The 30-year-old signed a contract worth £350,000 weekly plus add-ons that take his wages to the £500,000 mark per week.
Sanchez has endured a frustrating one year at Old Trafford as he has struggled to replicate the impressive form shown at Arsenal.
The Chilean forward has scored just two goals for Manchester United this season.
