Things Could Get Awkward Between Alexis Sanchez And Ander Herrera In The Coming Days

Alexis Sanchez is close to completing a move to Manchester United after he was pictured arriving for a medical at the Carrington training ground on Sunday morning.

In recent hours though, a story from last year has re-emerged online and it involves future teammate Ander Herrera.

Just days after United knocked three past Arsenal at the Emirates in December, a video surfaced of what Sanchez apparently said to Herrera during the game.

In the final minutes of the Premier League tie, former Barcelona winger Sanchez apparently spoke to the Manchester United midfielder in Spanish, saying "Who are you?" as he pointed at Herrera's name on the back of his shirt.

Well things could get a little awkward when the two meet as teammates in the coming days.


The clip actually shows Herrera initially speaking to Sanchez, who reacted with the "who are you" comment.

Both players received a yellow card in the final minutes, as two goals from Jesse Lingard and Antonio Valencia's opener gave Jose Mourinho's side a vital win following Raheem Sterling's late winner for Manchester City.

Here's how social media reacted to the incident:

Manchester United fans may have been unhappy at the time, but a large proportion of them have changed their mind on the Chilean striker as he edges towards a move to Old Trafford.

I'm sure the incident will be laughed off in the coming days...
