Barcelona reject loan option for Manchester United forward Alexis Sanchez

Barcelona have rejected the option to sign Alexis Sanchez on a loan deal from Manchester United this summer, report El Mundo Deportivo.

The Catalan sports newspaper claims the Chilean forward has been offered to his former club, who has scored just three Premier League goals for United since a January 2018 move from Arsenal.

Sanchez joined the Gunners from Barcelona in the summer of 2014, having scored 46 goals across three seasons for the Catalan giants.

The 30-year-old’s annual salary at Old Trafford is said to stand at a whopping €25m per annum and Barca are not in a position to facilitate such economic demands.

Paris Saint-Germain may be an option for Chile’s all-time record international goal scorer, but he may prove difficult for United to move on.
