Manchester United transfer plans have reportedly been hampered by the lack of interest from other clubs in their quest to let Alexis Sanchez leave the club this summer.

This is according to the publication from the stables of the Daily Express which claimed that the Red Devils’ transfer plans have been adversely affected by their inability to find a suitor for Chilean international attacker Alexis Sanchez.
