This is a blow for the Chile international, who, despite a slow start at Old Trafford under Jose Mourinho, looked set to earn a fresh start under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Norwegian tactician, who is at United as interim manager until the end of the season, has improved a number of previously under-performing players like Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku in his short time at the club and there’s no reason to think he couldn’t achieve something similar with a player of Sanchez’s calibre.

Still, the former Arsenal man will seemingly not be involved this weekend, with the MEN listing the Red Devils squad as being as follows:

Goalkeepers: David de Gea, Sergio Romero, Lee Grant

Defenders: Victor Lindelof, Phil Jones, Ashley Young, Diogo Dalot, Luke Shaw

Midfielders: Andreas Pereira, Juan Mata, Nemanja Matic, Paul Pogba, Fred, Ander Herrera, Scott McTominay, Jesse Lingard, James Garner

Forwards: Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford, Romelu Lukaku
