Alexis Sanchez to be SOLD after being dropped for West Ham loss

JOSE MOURINHO has finally lost patience with misfiring striker Alexis Sanchez and will ship him out of Old Trafford as soon as he finds a buyer.

Posted Tuesday, October 02, 2018 by

Sanchez, 29, was axed from Manchester United's 18-man squad ahead of their lunchtime defeat at West Ham.

The Chilean travelled by train with the rest of the United party and was fit to play, posting a photograph on social media with a defiant message underneath the banner: "United together".

But when the team was announced, Sanchez's name was nowhere to be seen with Mourinho only admitting the tough decision was based on "Options, just options."

Now, the job of selling £500,000-a-week flop Sanchez will begin.

The former Arsenal forward has made just five Premier League appearances this season, starting four of those.

And he has failed to find the net for United this term.

The Red Devils fought off competition from neighbours Manchester City to land Sanchez back in January.

But the move now appears an expensive mistake with Mourinho plotting to offload the Chile international.

United's troubled season reached a new low after a 3-1 defeat against the Hammers.

Felipe Anderson's early strike, a Victor Lindelof own-goal and Marko Arnautovic's finish left United manager Jose Mourinho increasingly feeling the heat.

The drama at Old Trafford is rapidly turning into a crisis as United equalled their worst start to a Premier League season with just 10 points from their opening seven matches.

Their record matches that of United four years ago under David Moyes, who did not see out the season.
