Manchester United fans may get a clearer understanding of Alexis Sanchez’s future at the club after Jose Mourinho indirectly addressed it.
There have been plenty of reports emerging on the Chilean being disgruntled at Old Trafford and hoping to leave as early as January.
PSG are said to be his most likely destination given they are one of the few who can afford his wages.
Some supporters believe Sanchez is in Mourinho’s bad books at the moment and given what the manager has just said, they don’t seem to be too wrong about it.
The former Arsenal man has struggled to adapt fully to his new surroundings and hasn’t put in the type of performances one would normally expect from him.

Alexis was completely absent from United’s match-day squad and Jose has seemingly refused to explain just why.
Had the Portuguese manager decided to rest the winger then at least that would have made sense given the arguably more important tie against Southampton on Saturday.
The signs don’t read well for Sanchez and he’ll definitely need to do more before knocking Anthony Martial out of the side.
He’s had plenty of opportunities in all four of the attacking positions and has failed to make an impact in any of them so far.
