Manchester United flop Alexis Sanchez finally returns to training after missing brilliant pre-season tour

Alexis Sanchez has returned to Man Utd training after injury

Sanchez suffered another blow in the first week of July after he limped out of Chile’s Copa America clash with Argentina after just 17-minutes.
As a result the ex-Arsenal forward missed clashes against Perth Glory, Leeds, Inter Milan and Tottenham.

However, as Ole Gunner Solskjaer’s men returned to England ahead of the start to the Premier League in two weeks, Sanchez was present.

David de Gea, Ashley Young and Marcus Rashford were all pictured pulling into Carrington.

It is understood United chiefs want to sell Sanchez, who is agreement his time at Old Trafford is up.

However, no offers have yet been received for the £500,000 a week flop – who arrived from the Gunners in January 2018.

Solskjaer revealed Sanchez will be fit for United’s Premier League opener against Chelsea.

The Old Trafford boss said: “I don’t think Alexis’s injury was too bad.

“When he’s due back is three weeks after his last game, so that will be just after we come back from tour.

“I would expect him to be fit enough to play straightaway and train straightaway.”
