Alexis record salary unsettles senior Man Utd teammates

Alexis Sanchez's record salary has unsettled many senior players inside the Manchester United locker room.

In January, the 29-year-old put pen to paper on a deal worth around £500,000-a-week with the Europa League champions. It means Sanchez is the fourth-highest paid player on the planet, behind Lionel Messi, Neymar and Cristiano Ronaldo.

And Don Balon says Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and David de Gea are all reportedly unhappy about his salary.

Although there has not been any direct confrontations between the stars, Jose Mourinho is aware that a situation could explode at any time.

Sanchez, on the other hand, is enjoying his arrival at United.

The report suggests that the ex-Udinese striker is delighted with his treatment at the club and has felt very welcome.
