Alexis Sanchez can only have done Manchester United a favour with his performance for Chile at the Copa America last night.

He scored one goal, a header, and set up another as Chile cruised to a 4-0 victory over Japan.

Sanchez has been a big disappointment at United since signing.

His former under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer got even worse than with Jose Mourinho, and his future prospects look bleak.

 

The problem is his wages make it difficult to shift him. United probably need a club in China to make an offer, as he will struggle to find another European team willing to match his current earnings.

Strong performances at the Copa America can only help attract interest.

In a worst case scenario that he stays, he would return to Old Trafford with his confidence lifted. This is a positive start in that regard.
