Jose Mourinho’s decision to leave Alexis Sanchez out of the squad against Young Boys has infuriated the Chilean and strengthened his resolve to leave Manchester United, according to reports.
The forward has failed to enter any sort of groove at Old Trafford, managing just one goal this season and a total of four in 30 appearances since joining in January.
Sanchez’s dire situation at Man United was reflected by Mourinho revealing after the 1-0 win over Young Boys that his omission from the match-day squad was not because of an injury.
And according to the Mirror‘s John Cross, the 29-year-old was left raging after his manager snubbed him on Tuesday and has told close friends he wants to leave Manchester following a tumultuous eleven months.
The report states that Sanchez has his heart set on joining Paris Saint Germain, although the French champions have not indicated whether they are looking to sign a player of Sanchez’s profile. His high wages and age will likely serve as key deterrents for a club whose recent policy has been to introduce younger talent.
So what now for Sanchez? Perhaps he should take a leaf out of the book of Anthony Martial, who was also once barely making the squad and seemingly destined to leave, only to now find himself at the top of his game. The Chilean has to believe he can do the same under Mourinho.
