Former Arsenal player Alexis Sanchez has spoken out on his wish to return to Arsenal when he first joined Man United in a swap deal in 2018, after one training session.

The former Barcelona star moved to the Old Trafford from the Emirates Stadium in a deal that had Henrikh Mkhitaryan move the opposite direction but it seem like a career-suicide mission as he lived only in his shadows.

Earning £560,000 weekly wage at the Old Trafford, it was still a nightmare spell for Alexis Sanchez as he scored just five goals in 45 games before being sent out to Inter Milan on loan the following season.

According to him, in a surprise video on Instagram, there were a lot of things that were unknown about the deal until he got signed up and that led to his frustration, starting from his first training with the team.

Alexis Sanchez revealed how he told his representative that he wanted to return to Arsenal immediately but that wasn’t possible because of the already signed contract.

Recalling how he was dropped by former manager Jose Mourinho against West Ham United, Alexis Sanchez said it was a fall to grass as it has never happened to him as a player.
