Sanchez cools United exit speculation

19th March 2019, 13:54 by Gareth Freeman

Alexis Sanchez has played down rumours he is seeking a Manchester United exit and says he wants to win titles with the club.

Sanchez joined United in January 2018 from Arsenal but has failed to replicate the kind of form he showed for the Gunners.

The Chilean has been linked with a summer exit, having struggled to cement a place in caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side, but Sanchez has indicated he has no intention of trying to force a move by stressing he wants to win silverware during his time at Old Trafford.

"United are such an important club, not only in England but on a global level, and I would love to help bring a trophy to the supporters," he told Inside United.

He added: "Obviously, I want to make the United fans really happy. I want to score goals. I want to bring them joy. I want to win silverware.

"When we lost last year's FA Cup final to Chelsea, I was not happy. Not happy at all. In fact, I was sad because I just wanted to make our wonderful supporters happy.

"When I was younger, I liked United. I swear. As a small child I liked United, I really liked them and I want to show this and bring the people joy because, obviously, I want to win."

Sanchez is currently sidelined with a knee injury and it remains to be seen if he will recover in time for the Champions League quarter-final first leg visit of former club Barcelona on April 10.

European glory is now United's only realistic chance of landing a trophy this season following their FA Cup exit at the weekend, while a top four finish looks a strong possibility and punters may wish to use their free bet to back the Old Trafford outfit to secure a Premier League top four finish.
