Italian side Roma are considering taking Manchester United misfit Alexis Sanchez on a season-long loan, according to reports. 

United are apparently keen on the deal and are prepared to pay a portion of Sanchez’s wage to ensure the deal goes through, The Sun has reported.

Sanchez has endured an unhappy time since moving to Old Trafford from Arsenal in January 2018. Injuries and a loss of form have hampered him, and there have been rumours of attitude problems.

He failed to spark when Olé Gunnar Solskjaer took over as United boss – despite being given chances – and now appears to not be in the plans for the first team. Solskjaer seems happy to go with a youthful front line and give chances to 17-year-old prospect Mason Greenwood.

Roma want a deal, and with Solskjaer wanting Sanchez out of the way, it appears a deal could go through before the Italian transfer window closes on September 2.
