Alexis Sanchez's Agent In Talks With Real Madrid Over January Move
Alexis Sanchez's time at Manchester United has pretty much been a disaster up to this point and now his agent is reportedly in talks with Real Madrid over a potential move to the Bernabeu.
It's not that long ago that Alexis Sanchez was one of the best players on the planet and wanted by Pep Guardiola as the last piece in the puzzle of his Premier League chasing Manchester City side.
It's scary to think how much better City might have been if they'd signed peak, actually good, Alexis Sanchez last season but instead they missed out and he moved to Manchester United in January.
It was seen as a coup for Jose Mourinho's side that they managed to get their rivals number one transfer target in the winter window but it hasn't turned out well.
The 29 year old has scored just three Premier League goals in 21 games and scored only one more in other competitions. His form this season has led him to being dropped and he could only make the bench in the derby at the weekend.
According to Spanish outlet El Chiringuito, via the Mirror, the former Arsenal forward is eyeing a move away from the club and his agent has held talks with Real Madrid over a possible move.
Considering his lack of form for United and huge wages it seems unlikely that anyone would really want him right now, however if any club could get him back to near his best he would still be an excellent signing.
Real are a forward short having failed to replace Cristiano Ronaldo in the summer, other than bringing in Mariano Diaz, who hasn't made an impact, and Sanchez has played in La Liga before.
Of course that move wouldn't be popular in Catalonia with Sanchez having played for Barcelona previously.
Sanchez, along with Romelu Lukaku, came on with 17 minutes to go but between them they were successful with less passes than Phil Foden who came on with just a minute to go of the game.
The match was dreadful for United who only managed one shot on target which was their penalty.
