Man Utd desperately trying to find Alexis buyer

Manchester United are desperately trying to find a buyer for Alexis Sanchez.

The Daily Mail says United have reluctantly accepted they will have to fund part of his staggering £500,000-per-week wages or pay him off if he moves away on loan.

As well as finding it hugely difficult to sell, the hastiness to throw money at Sanchez has messed up the club's whole wage structure and that was evident from talks with Ander Herrera and David de Gea.

Meanwhile, if United are forced to keep him, the 30-year-old will probably have to settle for a spot on the bench under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who will likely use him in the League Cup, Europa League and FA Cup.
