Among those Sanchez had hoped to join were Real Madrid, but that currently looks unlikely, according to Spanish outlet Don Balon.

There can be no question the Chile international’s stock will have fallen significantly during his time at Old Trafford, where he’s really struggled despite looking a world class performer in his time at previous club Arsenal.

It makes sense that Sanchez could be looking to leave United this summer, but it remains to be seen which top sides would gamble on him now.

Don Balon claim it could be tricky for the Red Devils to offload the 30-year-old at their €50million asking price, and with his wages being so high.
