Paul Merson anticipates “great player” Alexis Sanchez to start his profession if he returns to Manchester United next season.
Former Arsenal forward Paul Merson has actually recommended that Alexis Sanchez still has a part to play at Manchester United when his Inter Milan loan offer ends.
The Chile international has actually invested 2018-19 on loan at San Siro after having a hard time for self-confidence in his season-and-a-half with United.
Sanchez has actually scored simply one goal for Inter and the Italian club are not anticipated to use up the option to sign him completely when the transfer window opens.
Nevertheless, Merson thinks that a return to Old Trafford for the 31- year-old makes sense as he will be returning to a various side to the one he left in 2015.
“With what’s currently going on, I can’t see a team going out and spending £100m on a player anymore,” he informed Sky SportsNews “Teams are going to have to stick to what they have actually got so Manchester United keeping hold of Alexis Sanchez and bringing him back into the fold would come as not a surprise.
” The other alternatives would be to go and find a replacement and they would have to invest ₤60 m or ₤70 m to do it. I simply do not think clubs are going to do that any longer, and in fact, I do not think individuals care.
” I can comprehend Sanchez coming back to play a part at Old Trafford due to the fact that, on his day, he is a greatplayer After this, individuals are going to value things a lot more now – which consists of a few of the footballers who get packages of money and think they can simply walk through. Sanchez was among those players, however I think he will most likely now think this life goes very rapidly, particularly a football profession.
“Players might start to appreciate that more and he could come back, work hard and be a success because you can’t go from being that good at Arsenal to be that bad at Manchester United, you just can’t. It’s definitely a better United than the one he left too. They were flying before the suspension of the league.”
A current report recommended that Sanchez hesitates to take a pay cut in order to protect a move far from United.
