Manchester United have received a big injury boost for their crucial Champions League quarterfinal second leg meeting with Barcelona following the news that forward Alexis Sanchez will be in the squad for the game.

The Chilean international player has been out of action for the better part of the last two months after he sustained a hamstring injury in the 3-2 Premier League home win over Southampton in February.

His potential inclusion in the Manchester United squad for the game against Barcelona was revealed by Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

During his pre-match press conference ahead of the Premier League game with West Ham United at home, Solskjaer told reporters that the Hammers game will come too soon for Alexis Sanchez despite the fact that he has returned to full training with his teammates.

Solskjaer revealed that the former Arsenal attacker will be in the squad for the second leg meeting with his former club Barcelona.

The 30-year-old was a Barcelona player until joined North London giants Arsenal in 2014 in a deal reported to be around £35m.

Alexis Sanchez swapped Arsenal for Manchester United in January 2018 but he has not been able to replicate his superb Gunners form for the Red Devils.

He would be hoping to change that starting from the Barcelona game with Manchester United trailing 1-0 from the home leg.
