Ray Parlour advises United to swap Alexis Sanchez for Gareth Bale
Alexis Sanchez's nightmare at Old Trafford is not even close to coming to an end and it seems the United hierarchy have lost patience with the Chilean. The Red Devils are said to be keen on offloading the 30-year-old and Ray Parlour has advised them to swap him for Real Madrid superstar Gareth Bale in the upcoming summer transfer window.
Speaking about Sanchez to talkSPORT via Goal, he said,
“He was brilliant at Arsenal. I do like him. He was one of those players who you would pay to watch."
“Sanchez was in such great form at Arsenal. I know a lot of Manchester United fans and I said to them, ‘You got an absolute bargain there – £20 million for a player of his calibre – he’s going to make your team much better."
“But it just hasn’t happened for him. I’d go to Real Madrid and I’d swap him for Gareth Bale. They’ll be on the same sort of wages.”
Alexis Sanchez has managed to find the net only 5 times in 41 games for United since arriving from Arsenal in January last year.
