Alexis Sánchez admits wanting United exit after first training session

Alexis Sánchez revealed in an Instagram video that he asked his agent whether he could leave Manchester United and return to Arsenal after only one training session.

The 31-year-old has used a six-minute long Instagram post to tell his side of the story about his failed move to Old Trafford in 2018. Sánchez endured a torrid spell after signing under José Mourinho, scoring five goals in 45 appearances before being loaned to Internazionale last season and joining them on a free this summer.

‘I think I remember that at the first training I had there, I realised many things. I got home and I told my family and my agent: can’t the contract be cancelled and I go back to Arsenal? They started laughing,’ he said

    As an Arsenal fan, this shows his true colours, he didn't care about Arsenal or Man Utd. Told United fans he didn't leave to win things, it was clearly for the money otherwise he would have joined City. He pretty much sulked for the last season he was with us. He put us in a hard position n ultimately we signed Ozil to that crazy contract because of the Sanchez situation

    Mistakes are bound to make. He did wat he thought was right for him. So I don't think bad of him. If someone else was in his ahoes. They would probably sign too. cheer up alexis❤️

    He will regret living Arsenal forever. He was loved by fans and players. He was like a superhero for Arsenal fans. Leaving Arsenal is the biggest mistake Sanchez made in his footballing career.

    To join United you must have strong mentality… Media will always find story about you.. Join other club if want to be less pressure….

    "Some ex-players also spoke out who had absolutely no idea what was going on inside the club. And they gave their opinions, blaming me, saying it was my fault and all that."

    The poor performances were your fault! What was going on inside the club that could've made you play so badly?
