Alexis Sanchez: Manchester United flop accused of being money-hungry

Alexis Sanchez is another player expected to depart United after a torrid season, which saw him score just twice in 27 appearances across all competitions.

Evra's comments caused a social media stir splitting fans' opinions on the matter.

That's the view of Red Devils hero Patrice Evra with Sanchez's future at Manchester United in serious doubt this summer. "The United fans love you when you say you are committed", Evra added.

Others feel as though Pogba has failed to live up to his superstar billing and has often lacked work ethic in games.

Paul Pogba and Sanchez are now the two highest earning players at Man United and they receive a bonus every time they score a goal.

"He had Manchester City, they were offering less money but he was going to play better football than United - I'm sorry about that, but City play better football and [Pep] Guardiola will improve him".

"If Paul decides to stay another year and then leave, or stay another few years, maybe the fans will love him because he is committed".

Three people are in serious condition, while six others are in fair condition, said Mischa Chernick, a hospital official. Weather conditions in the area on Monday included high overcast skies with 14 kilometres per hour southeast winds.

"Some players only come for the money, I am not afraid to say that", Evra said.

Evra expects there to be a big summer clear-out, with World Cup victor Pogba likely to head the list of high-profile departures.

Just like Pogba, Sanchez is also attracting interest with the likes of Juventus and Inter Milan reportedly weighing up an offer for him. That's the United fans I know - they've just had enough.

According to The Sun, while goal incentive schemes are normal in most clubs, the pay disparity that excludes Pogba and Sanchez from the rest of the squad has created divisions in the locker room. Don't tell me he loved Manchester United when he was a kid. After Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's incredible start to his reign in the dugout, their form has taken a nosedive ever since he was given the job on a permanent basis.

"It's either the money or he wanted to be the number one, take the No.7 shirt and be the star".
