Man Utd transfer news: THREE players who could replace Alexis Sanchez at Old Trafford | Football | Sport

The Chile international has cut a frustrated figure since moving to Old Trafford from Arsenal.

The Times claim Sanchez is disillusioned with life for several reasons. It’s suggested Sanchez has been badly affected by the break up of his relationship with long term partner Mayte Rodriguez.

However, he also doesn’t get on with his team-mates and isn’t fond of Jose Mourinho’s management style.

With moneybags PSG now sounding out of the wantaway ace, who could replace him at the Theatre of Dreams?

Gareth Bale

The Welshman’s future in La Liga is up in the air once again.

It was thought Bale could fill the void left by Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure to Juventus in the summer.

However, things haven’t gone entirely to plan.

Real are languishing domestically and Santiago Solari is in temporary charge at the Bernabeu.

He guided Los Blancos to an unconvincing 2-0 triumph against Valladolid last weekend.

The players were jeered off at half-time and Bale – who has fractured relationship with the Real faithful – received a barrage of whistles when he was substituted.

Mourinho remains a long-term admirer of Bale and, if Real finally land Chelsea ace Eden Hazard, they might be tempted to cash in.


The Barcelona ace has been on the radar of Arsenal and Tottenham since the summer.

But with Sanchez angling for an exit, the Red Devils could enter the fray.

He only moved to Barcelona from Bordeaux in July but is having a tough time at the Nou Camp.

Catalan daily Mundo Deportivo have claimed that Malcom is keen to pack his bags if things don’t improve.

It’s suggested the 21-year-old held crunch talks about his lack of competitive action with manager Ernesto Valverde.

The former Athletic Bilbao boss, however, only had limited sympathy and told him to work harder.

Publicly Malcom has claimed he’s happy in Catalonia but it remains to be seen if he’ll put up with a peripheral role for much longer.

James Rodriguez

The Colombian forward is currently exiled in the Bundesliga.

Real Madrid bigwigs finally offloaded him in 2017 to Bayern Munich on a two-year loan deal.

He had tumbled down the pecking order during Zinedine Zidane’s tenure despite Real paying £63m for him three years earlier.

Rodriguez helped Bayern Munich continue their dominance of the German top tier last term but this season he’s struggled.

He has three goals from eight league matches but has a strained relationship with Niko Kovac.

Last season, the Colombia star was often indulged by Jupp Heynckes after took over from Carlo Ancelotti.

Manchester United have repeatedly been linked with the 27-year-old in recent years and might now get the chance to land him on the cheap.
