Alexis Sánchez Named The Worst Manchester United Signing Of All Time
Alexis Sánchez has been named the worst Manchester United signing of all time.
SPORTbible posted a poll on Twitter asking for football fans to vote from the former Arsenal ace and three other choices: Ángel Di María, Bebé and José Kléberson.
The 30-year-old Chilean forward won the vote by an absolute landslide, with Bebé coming in second place, Di María in third and Kléberson in fourth.

Sánchez arrived at United in January 2018 as part of a swap deal for Henrikh Mkhitaryan, but the Chile international failed to make an impact under former Red Devils manager José Mourinho and current boss Ole Gunnar Solskjær.
During United's 1-1 draw against Huddersfield Town at the John Smith's Stadium on Saturday, the club's hopes of finishing in the Premier League's top four this season came to an end.
However, United legend Gary Neville absolutely destroyed Sánchez by saying that there is absolutely no future for him at the club.
"The depths of despair for Ole Gunnar Solskjær and Manchester United is how [Sánchez] has performed since he came to the club," he said on Sky Sports.
"It's an absolute mystery. I don't know if anyone can put any science or sense behind what has happened to him.
"It's as if one the most tenacious football player you will ever see with and without the ball has lost absolutely everything.
"That's from confidence to his energy to his legs to his dribbling abilities to his goals.
"There is nothing left in Alexis Sánchez at all. And we are still waiting for him to turn up.
"There are number of imminent decisions to be made on number of players at Manchester United and he is one of them."
The Huddersfield draw had United fans even express their frustration towards Solskjær, with many calling for him to be sacked.

Alexis Sanchez left Arsenal to challenge for silverware.
Instead he went down as Manchester United's worst transfer and possibly the history of the Premier League.#alexissanchez #PremierLeague
