CHILE star Alexis Sanchez has been backed to quit Manchester United after a horror 18 months at Old Trafford.

Sanchez joined from Arsenal last January but has scored just five goals for the club in all competitions.

He had scored 80 times for Arsenal in 166 appearances but has not found the same form at United.

With his high wage, it’s led many to think Sanchez could be sold by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

And Sky Sports reporter Mark McAdam believes a departure might be best for the Chilean’s career.

McAdam said: “I feel sorry for him because I don’t want to see a footballer - particularly someone as talented as Alexis Sanchez - fail on the biggest stage.

“And that’s what’s happening at Manchester United.

“He was unreal at Arsenal. The amount of times I watched him drag that team towards three points…

“It just hasn’t worked out at Man Utd and I feel he deserves an opportunity to prove himself elsewhere.

“He has the quality. Players don’t become bad players overnight. He will go on to prove he’s a good player.”

Sanchez is set to feature for Chile tonight in the Copa America third-place play-off.

They face Argentina after being beaten by Peru on penalties in the semi-finals.

And some United fans saw Sanchez’s performance in that game and think the club should sell now.

One fan tweeted: “I think Alexis Sanchez's most realistic options are MLS and China at this point. Just can't see him reigniting his career anywhere in Europe at this stage #CopaAmerica #MUFC.”

“Yeah, we still need to sell Sanchez #mufc,” reacted another.

A third added: “I know a lot of people were suggesting Sanchez's #CopaAmerica form was but I wasn't buying it. It was much better than he's ever produced in a #MUFC shirt but nowhere near a world class level. Some of those opponents were crap too.”

Another disgruntled United fan wrote: “Alexis Sanchez is so bad #mufc.”

Meanwhile another declared: “United have the perfect excuse to sell Sanchez now, don’t delay.”
