Manchester United supporters have reached the end of their tether with Alexis Sanchez following his performance against Paris Saint Germain on Tuesday.
His second half performance was an exhibition of impotence and anonymity down the left hand side as PSG ran away with the game, scoring twice in seven minutes to kill the tie.
And so, in response, we put the matter to the good people of Twitter and asked if they thought Sanchez should leave in the summer or receive another chance to set the record straight next season.
Many supporters saw last night as the final straw for Alexis.
If he doesn't improve by May, should United sell up in the summer or give him another chance next season? pic.twitter.com/JndbB3vbPc

The responses, as you could imagine, were unanimous.
Sell him. He served his purpose bagging at the Emirates in January. Surplus to requirements now.

We'll have to share his wages in order to offload him.. arguably our worst signing ever.

If he doesnt find form come May, sell him. If he cant get himself sorted in 15 months ne never will. i'm still puzzled why we signed him.

Near impossible to sell him. China is only option which will meet his wage demands but can’t see him going there. United will have huge issue selling players over the next 3-4 years.

It's time for both to move on. We can spend those wages on quality, younger players, that fit.

I’ve Been his biggest defender , but he isn’t been helped by been playing on the left & shit players around him , play him as a false 9 or on right if he doesn’t improve then , sell him, but why would he want to leave on the money he’s on an he’s on long contract as well 🤷♂️

Interestingly, supporters are not just united in their beliefs that Sanchez must leave this summer. There is also a genuine concern that United won’t be able to sell him anywhere.
His wages are a cool £400,000-a-week. There cannot be many clubs who are, on the one hand, capable of financing such a wage package and, on the other, incentivized to splash out big on a player who has lost his potency in a massive way over the last 12 months.
