Manchester United forward, Alexis Sanchez will wish he had signed for Manchester City instead of Man United, Paul Ince has said.
Paul believes Old Trafford never looked like the right fit for the South American and this has resulted in an expensive mistake.
According to him, Sanchez was supposed to sign for Pep because Mufc was far from settled at the time and their style of play wasn’t conducive to him.
He added that the miatake becomes sadder for the Chilean now that Bruno Fernandes is making the impact he was eager to make at the club.
His words, “Going to United was a mistake.
“I bet Alexis wishes he’d gone to City, like he was supposed to. United was never, ever the right move for him. The team wasn’t settled and their style of play wasn’t conducive to him.
“He was clearly desperate to make an impact. Look at the way Bruno Fernandes has hit the ground running at Old Trafford, that’s what Sanchez wanted, and was expected to do.
“But he didn’t get a lot of game time and was used out of position, so when he did play he started to come deeper and deeper to get on the ball, to try and influence the game, and that wasn’t his game.
“A move last summer was always on the cards, and I thought Inter would’ve been a good place for him to go – but, again, he doesn’t fit. Where does he play in the 3-5-2 that Antonio Conte plays? You’ve got Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez up front, there’s no room for Sanchez.
“Football is a funny old game, though. Sanchez could definitely go back to United, look fantastic in training, and bang suddenly he’s important to their plans after all. I wouldn’t rule out him being a key part of their team next season.”
