REVEALED: The cost per goal Man Utd have seen with Alexis

Alexis Sanchez has been worth a staggering £8.2m per goal at Manchester United.

Sanchez arrived at Old Trafford in January 2018 as part of a swap deal with Arsenal which saw Henrikh Mkhitaryan head the other way.

The Chilean signed a £500,000-a-week, four-and-a-half-year deal with United making him the highest-paid player in the history of the club, reports the Daily Express.

He scored just three goals in the half-season after joining and continued his torrid form into the 2018/19 campaign with two goals in 27 appearances.

The forward has now earned over £41m in wages from the club and has only offered five goals in return - equating to £8.2m per goal.
