“Destined to fail” “Poor transfer decision” Club legend divides fans with claim about Man United ‘Fernando Torres’

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes believes forward Alexis Sanchez was never the kind of player that suited the red devils.

The Premier League giants signed him in a direct swap deal from rivals Arsenal in the winter window as Armenian international attacking midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan moved the other direction to Emirates.

Alexis Sanchez scored three goals in 18 matches across all competition in the second stanza of the 2017-18 campaign to raise major questions about the form of the South American.

The struggles of the 29-year old have continued this season and the Chilean failed to score in his first six-match appearances in the League this campaign.

He scored United’s last-gasp winning goal in a 3-2 comeback win over Newcastle at home in their last Premier League fixture before the FIFA international break.

The attacker, one of Premier League’s best players during his time at the Emirates Stadium allowed his own standards to fall in his last 18 months in North London as he sought to seal a switch after failing to sign a new contract with Arsenal.

Ex-Manchester United and England star Paul Scholes have questioned if his former side should have signed the South American in the first place.

Sanchez netted 80 goals in 166 matches across all competitions during his time at Emirate Stadium after the Chilean star joined Arsenal from La Liga giant Barcelona in a £35million deal back in the 2014 summer.

He lifted two English FA Cup titles during his time at Arsenal but Alexis was unable to fire the North London club to title glory.
